child custody 173706456 imageAny divorce agreement which involves custody of children will include physical custody. This will be where children will be through the week and over the weekend, also who is ward of them overnight. Also a schedule will be set for the summer months, because when children are out of school, it is a good opportunity for them to spend time with the parent they see less.

While these concerns are necessary, there are other concerns which are valid considering the digital age we live in now. With Facebook and other websites, it becomes a parent’s job to manage their children’s online presence. With two parents who share custody, it becomes necessary to lay down ground rules about what pictures and information can be posted on the internet about children.

“Social media has become a very big issue in all aspects of divorce,” according to Alton Abramowitz, who is the president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Many law firms suggest that clients close all social media profiles when they first consider filing for divorce. After that, a custody agreement should lay down parameters or privacy settings to make sure that a child’s information does not fall into the wrong hands.

In order to make sure that all issues of custody are settled, it is important to get the help of a legal professional. You wouldn’t want to leave any wiggle room regarding your children and their safety. Contact an experienced divorce attorney in DuPage County today who can guide you through this difficult process.
