What parents should know about custody evaluators

Parents in divorces or contested custody proceedings may have to participate in a custody evaluation. The purpose of an evaluation is to provide the finder of fact with recommendations as to how to award custody and/or parenting time based on the “best interests of the child” standard.

Proactivity in planning your estate

If you are a proactive kind of person, you probably get a lot of kidding for expecting the worst to happen. However, to you, it just makes good sense to anticipate the worst and make a contingency plan. This may mean having an alternative plan when your daughter wants an outdoor wedding, overpacking when you go on vacation and creating an emergency savings account just in case.
