Father's PTSD alleged factor in child custody case

Some of the people in New Hampshire who chose to join the military did not return in the same condition. Some suffered physical injuries, but many also face long-term mental health issues, including the development of post-traumatic stress disorder. While many are able to manage these issues through the help of mental health professionals and other tools, one veteran in another state claims that his PTSD diagnosis was recently used against him in a child custody case.

High asset divorce creates conflict between dad, adult children

Marriages end every day in New Hampshire for a variety of different reasons. While all couples who choose to end their relationships often struggle with the decision, a high asset divorce can be complicated and result in more contention. For example, a couple that lives in another state may face lengthy proceedings after the woman announced her decision to seek a divorce.

While every parent worries over issues like child custody, far too often, it is fathers who get the short end of the stick when it comes to parenting time and visitation. Despite numerous studies showing the many benefits of equal parenting time after divorce, family courts are still far more likely to award sole custody to mothers over 80 percent of the time.

Most people in New Hampshire would agree that the internet has revolutionized people's lives. Information on a variety of different subjects is available with a simple search.

This can be especially troubling when the advice involves legal proceedings such as divorce.

Is waiting to divorce best for children?

Most parents in New Hampshire are willing to make major sacrifices for their children. For some, this could even mean postponing the decision to divorce until their children are older because they are concerned that a breakup will have negative consequences for younger children. However, this is not always the case.
