Can my ex change our child's appearance without my permission?

Kids change every day. They get older, their tastes and personalities change, and they want to try new things. It can be a challenge for parents to adjust to these changes, especially when they alter how moms and dads see their children.

This is why it can be so upsetting when parents share custody and one parent allows or makes changes to a child's appearance without consulting the other parent. To avoid these situations, it can be crucial to plan ahead.

Men: Don't be afraid to ask for support during divorce

People traditionally think of men as less emotional and more pragmatic than women. Many people also assume men are the breadwinners in a family and play a less active role in the lives of their children than mothers do.

However, these assumptions can be off-base and damaging. They often make men going through a divorce think that they don't need or qualify for various types of support, but that is simply not true.
