How prenuptial and postnuptial agreements differ

Divorce, child custody and support are all common issues families may face at some point, but other family law matters that couples may have to deal with are prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

Why one parent may request sole custody of his or her children

When two people decide to separate and they have children together, one or both may want to have sole custody of the children.

There is no telling how these types of disputes will end, but parents have two options when it comes to finding a resolution: letting a judge decide or working together to find an arrangement with which they both are comfortable.
