Video: Cordell & Cordell News – April 3, 2015

Dads Divorce, sponsor Cordell & Cordell and sister site have teamed up to present a series of weekly recap videos to keep you informed on the latest news and top stories.

This week, Cordell & Cordell posted an appearances Principal Partner Joe Cordell recently made on Phoenix Money Radio’s “Business for Breakfast.” In the interview, Mr. Cordell explained how many people often make the mistake of letting emotions dictate their decision-making process during marriage and divorce.

Dads Divorce posted a new article explaining what rights divorced parents have when it comes to deciding the religion of their children.

Usually, children will be given the right to decide for themselves if they are old enough. If not, the right typically goes to the legal guardian. When joint legal custody is shared, several other factors based on the child’s best interests come into play.

Men’s Divorce published a new video to its Attorney Bites series detailing who has the right to claim the children on their tax return.

Only one parent has the right to claim their child as a dependent, and if both do so it will lead to an audit from the IRS. Typically, a child needs to live with a parent for more than half a year to be able to claim them as a dependent, but there are instances where the noncustodial parent is able to make the claim.
