Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

3 Important Things To Consider When Divorcing And Working Out Custody

If you are going through a divorce you a probably worried about your children, and rightfully so. Children can suffer during a divorce, and it can be very difficult figuring out custody. It is so important that divorcing couples do a couple of things to make sure that the children don't suffer during a divorce. Here are some things you need to think about.

1. Never Use Your Children As Leverage

One of the biggest mistakes people make is using the children as leverage against their spouse. Both parents love their children greatly, but you should never use the love your spouse has for their children against them. You should never try to use your children to punish your spouse. What ends up happening is that you punish the children as well. The children need to be with both parents and they need to feel like their well being is put before anything else. This can only be done if both parents realize that although they may be fighting and unhappy with each other, the children need you to look out for their best interest.

2. Pay Child Support

Another problem that many couples have during a divorce is the fight over child support. The spouse who doesn't have the children as much will have to pay some sort of child support. To punish or hurt your spouse you may not want to pay the child support. But what you have to realize is that it is the children once again who suffer from this. If they don't have enough money to care for their needs they may not have quality child care, not be able to do extra curriculum activities they love, go to birthday parties, and so many more things. In addition, the parent with custody may have to work more hours, which can be hard for the children at home to not have a parent with them as often. For this reason, pay the child support.

3. Don't Talk Bad About Your Spouse

Remember your fight is with your spouse, not your children. You children are caught in the middle of loving both parents, but being victims of the divorce. When you put your children in the middle of your fights and make them feel like they have to choose sides, you can cause long term emotional damage.

By understanding how these things can complicate your divorce and hurt your children you can avoid doing anything harmful. Talk with an attorney like Anderson Legal Group, P.C. for more information.
