proper divorce negotiationsIn Long Island, child custody is often one of the most disputed areas in divorce negotiations. The court determines custody based on the best interest of a child. Unfortunately, this aspect can be the most complicated and controversial component of a divorce proceeding. With that said, children may sometimes become bartering tools, with their well-being getting lost in their parents’ tug-of-war.

Even though their marriage has ended, parents should still manage their children’s growth and development. Both should help their kids understand that although they no longer love each other as husband and wife, they care for each other as a mother and father.

As husband and wife, working together may be impossible for ex-spouses during or after finalizing their divorce in Long Island. As parents, ex-spouses can use different methods and resources to continue raising their children together. These methods and resources can include adhering to a child custody arrangement.

Child Custody Arrangements

Joint

Under this type, both parents have legal custody, with one parent designated as the primary residential guardian. Both ex-spouses also have the right to make major decisions for their kids, including their primary residence, medical and dental treatment, education, religious education, and extra-curricular activities.

Shared

Under this type, both ex-spouses share legal custody, with each parent having specific periods of responsibility with their kids. This arrangement provides both the right to make major decisions on an equal basis.

Sole

If the court doesn’t award joint, one parent will have sole custody, which means one parent has the authority to make legal decisions for their child. The non-custodial parent, on the other hand, receives specific visitation.

As parents, ex-spouses can use different methods and resources to continue raising their kids together. They just have to keep in mind that the most important purpose of any method is to convey to their children that they love and care for them.

Ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden may have released a series of leaks that threatened global relations, but he says the US can recover from this.

Snowden said that he is not giving up hope for America. In his words, “What makes our country strong is our system of values.”

“We can correct the laws, restrain the overreach of agencies, and hold the senior officials responsible for abusive programs to account,” added the whistleblower.

No chances of coming back just yet

In an online chat, Snowden said he would not be coming back to the US until the laws are changed. He admitted that his return to his motherland “is the best resolution” for everyone, although he later responded, “It’s unfortunately not possible in the face of current whistle-blower protection laws.”

He reasoned that the Whistleblower Protection Act does not include former government contractors like himself.

The former contractor also revealed why he exposed the NSA’s spying actions.

“It’s not good for our country, it’s not good for the world, and I wasn’t going to stand by and watch it happen, no matter how much it cost me,” said Snowden.

The whistleblower is currently in Russia. He is charged with espionage in the US.
