Nursing Home and Assisted Living Planning Minnesota

Estate Planning MNGrowing up, our parents exhibited so much strength, control, and confidence throughout our lives that we feel like they will never age.

Parents are the building blocks that help create who we are today as individuals. The thought of your parents getting older can be a very scary.Read Full Post

Anoka Attorney adds Overnights to Child Custody Issues

For a long time, child development specialists have disagreed on the role and place for overnights for non-custodial parents for children under the age of 4.  Some have raised true concerns about the ability of a young child to bond when he or she has two homes instead of one.  Now, a soon-to-be released article, tentatively titled: Social Science and Parenting Plans for Young Children: A Consensus Report By Richard A. Warshak University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center   This study appears to assume an absence of studies demonstrating any risks of overnight parenting time but does make a valid point about the ‘vulnerability’ of the father-child relationship if the father is not a significant factor in the child’s life at an early age.   While the latter is an interesting and very good point, I have difficulty with the statement that there are no such studies.  There are a couple of seminal studies, including those done by Jen McIntosh in Australia, that a child’s sense of security is clearly affected and that they behave differently if being bounced from home to home.  Instead of blindly deciding that all three year olds would benefit from an equal overnight parenting time, it may be better to look closely at each child-and at each case and determine how the child reacts to such a situation.   Likewise, instead of blindly assuming that no 12 month old should spend overnights away from home, it will be better to look at the relationship between the parents, the father’s level of commitment, and the child’s overall adjustment to the separation.  There is no one-size-fits-all.  This is...

New Technology in possibly to be used Anoka and Minneapolis Schools may figure in future Custody Cases

School districts in the Minneapolis and Anoka areas are considering purchasing software from Tenorshare.com that would restore lost, deleted, or damaged photos, texts, etc from an ios or Android device.  While it is being marketed as a ‘restore’ mechanism whereby a school could restore iPad data from a school-owned device if the device is damaged, it is essentially the same type of software used by the FBI and government investigators for searching hard drives for evidence. Very old messages and photos re-appeared when this restore software was used on iPhones, and it is available for Android devices as well.  This means, as we attorneys have long suspected, that all digital activity becomes an imbedded footprint and is never truly “deleted”.   Now this deleted information is available for recovery at a relatively low price. As a family law attorney, I know that this sort of information can be very useful, and I know of cases where one parent has ‘restored’ another parent’s iPhone to find texts that are compromising.  Those texts were then used against the compromised parent in a hearing to establish custody and parenting time.  I mention this to my clients...
