American court reinforces foreign child support order

Divorces can be emotional for the parties involved, especially children. Courts in Virginia apply the rule of "best interest of the child" to determine most divorce issues related to the child. These issues may include child support, child custody and visitation rights.

Online protection a must for divorcing couples

Many Alexandria City, Virginia, residents may agree that the very nature of divorce can lead to acrimony among all parties involved. In today's digital world, acrimonious behavior can quickly spread to cyberspace via social media websites and a divorcing spouse might need protection from an online onslaught stemming from a bitter post by an ex-spouse.

Divorce, deployment and child custody

Divorce is hard on all of the parties involved, including the children, and in cases of military family law these cases may be handled a little differently than their civilian counterparts. For instance, recently, a 28-year-old serviceman was threatened with jail time as well as the loss of custody of his daughter while he was deployed. This man holds primary custody of his daughter from a previous marriage. However, the child custody issue garnered tremendous public sympathy, compelling a judge to reverse her previous decisions.

Divorce signals a new beginning to life

Many Virginia residents know sometimes divorcing couples suffer from depression. Many others do not want to separate, but are forced to by their spouses. However, these negative thoughts may not be a correct way to think of a divorce because they may hurt a divorcing spouse's future. Divorce should be thought of not as the ending of a life, but as a new beginning.

Sailor requests judge to postpone child custody proceedings

Military deployment to a remote location, far away from family is difficult for any soldier. Some couples, who cannot handle the strain of military life, opt to divorce and not complicate their lives further. Virginia is home to dozens of military families, and residents know that child custody when one spouse is still actively engaged in active duty can be quite complicated, if not handled correctly. Recently, a social media campaign in many states was carried out in support of a U.S. Navy sailor ordered by the court to be present at a hearing, even though he is deployed to an unknown location.
