Child Custody – Are you putting your children first? By Rosalind Sedacca, CCT

When facing divorce as a parent child-custody issues can become quite challenging and emotions regarding divorce-related issues can easily become charged. I recently came upon an article about proposed changes to child custody legislation pending in some states. An investigative committee was being formed to consider whether “shared parenting may be the best custodial situation […]




Divorced Parents: What to do when kids refuse visitation – by Rosalind Sedacca, CCT

At the Dads Divorce website someone asked a question about what to do when kids refuse visitation. I thought this topic had value for every parent dealing with custody issues.
