Pitt Slams Jolie For Revealing Private Details About Their Kids

I do not know Brad or Angelina. I have not read their legal papers. But I read the headline and article about the children’s privacy. I do not know if it is true. But I have seen it happen over and over. Parents think their children cannot read or hear what is going on but … Continue reading Pitt Slams Jolie For Revealing Private Details About Their Kids

Brad Pitt And Custody Hardball

I read that Ms. Jolie was not going to let Brad see his kids over Christmas because the kids were not ready. That seems very sad to me, both for the children and for their father.

Custody And The Baby Jesus

I got a call the other day. Mom goes to a church where there is a nativity scene and the baby Jesus in a manger. Father says it’s all a bunch of hooey. He doesn’t want his children exposed to any religion until they are 18 and able to make their own decisions. Since when … Continue reading Custody And The Baby Jesus

If you share your children for the holidays with your former partner or spouse, does Christmas really have to be on December 25? Do your children really care? The point is: Christmas is a holiday season and can be celebrated during the season.

The new wife or the new girlfriend or boyfriend or husband is not relevant for child support. The ex wife is trying to drag Renne into the fray because the boyfriend has been … Continue reading Child Support And Arizona And Renee Zellweger

I got a call the other day from a father who is being denied time with his child. I don’t know all the facts yet but I do know that children need people who love them.

Brad Pitt And Custody Documents

Brad Pitt has recently asked the California courts to seal the custody records of his divorce. I have an opinion about that. Now, I don’t know Angelina and I don’t know Brad, but I know about divorce and children.  I don’t know California law and I have not read any of their pleadings. But based … Continue reading Brad Pitt And Custody Documents

Christmas and Reese Witherspoon

I watched a quick interview with Reese and her former husband, Ryan, on TV last week or so. They were discussing how they shared their two children over the holidays. It was a nice arrangement where they took turns over Thanksgiving and Christmas and each parent was able to travel to meet with extended family … Continue reading Christmas and Reese Witherspoon

How’s That Microscope?

Your family has a home and most people do not really know what goes on inside your home. Or your private plane for that matter. But once you or your spouse files for divorce, you lose your privacy and your life is under a microscope. For instance, after Angelina filed for divorce, what happened on … Continue reading How’s That Microscope?
