Schools Reopening and Getting Back to Custody Schedules

By Sheryl Rentz on September 16, 2020

As Pennsylvania counties have reached the green phases of reopening, serious discussions are being had about students returning to school and how to move forward. Some have chosen to implement hybrid models or maintain the virtual learning programs from the Spring semester, while others have reopened fully with new heatlh standards.

By Sheryl Rentz on April 13, 2020

After a divorce or separation, it is a terrible feeling to be aware that the other parent is turning your child against you.

Can Social Media Affect My Custody Rights?

By Sheryl Rentz on March 2, 2020

What you post on social media can be used as evidence in a child custody case. Information, even those considered private, that are culled from your profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, your dating profiles, and blogs can color your image as a responsible parent in a child custody case. This kind of evidence can be persuasive – and very damaging. That’s why we tell all of our clients to stay off social media as soon as we sign their case.

Whose Weekend Is It, Anyway?

By Sheryl Rentz on December 17, 2018

Having a successful co-parenting relationship is an important part of raising a child when you’re not with the other parent, but it can also be the most difficult.

When you have a child with someone, you don’t get to do the petty things that you feel like doing when you break up with an ex. You both have to be “the bigger person” and put personal feelings aside to ensure that your child’s life is full of love, stability, and support. Read the rest »
