Dads Divorce published a new article answering six frequently asked questions by divorced parents about parenting time over spring break.

Although the specifics differ case to case, the majority of questions regarding spring break parenting time and custody issues can be answered by reviewing the language of the parenting plan or divorce decree.

Men’s Divorce posted a new article explaining what it means to be in contempt of court and what the possible consequences of contempt are.

In divorce, contempt can result in both civil and criminal penalties, but it is intended to coerce the opposing party into compliance with the court order and is not usually used punitively.
