Mediation is better than high-conflict child custody disputes


It is only natural that many parents in Minnesota want custody of their children after a divorce. They may try anything to keep the children, occasionally leading to a high-conflict custody dispute. However, children may also be affected by the child custody battle. A recent short film, Talk to Strangers, shows the effect of high-conflict custody disputes on children and discourages parents from engaging in such disputes.

Many parents do not receive child support in the United States


Residents of Minnesota may agree that divorce is especially complicated for a couple with children. The parents may have to decide on child custody, visitation plans and child support. Although these are different issues, they are linked to one another. Emotional disturbance and financial needs may change perspectives for each spouse. While the child custody order may ensure that the child gets the benefit of being raised by both parents, a child support order helps the custodial parent take care of the child's financial needs.

Beyoncé's father involved in another paternity dispute


Sometimes, a Minnesota father may not be ready to take responsibility of a child he may not think he fathered. A mother may not be willing to share custody of the child and may refuse to recognize the rights of the biological father. These cases are often solved with a paternity test. If paternity is proven, the mother will be awarded child support, while the father can claim child custody and visitation rights. Recently, a second lawsuit was filed against Beyoncé's father, claiming that he is the father of a four-year-old girl.
