When asked to comment, King said, “Resolving a child custody suit can often be an emotionally difficult process, leading many parents to make rash decisions that could derail their entire case. Here are some of the top mistakes to steer clear from when undergoing a child custody case.”

One of the most common errors, according to King, made by parents is making decisions based on emotion.

“Attempting to figure out a child custody arrangement will undoubtedly cause stress levels to rise on both sides. Many parents allow this stress and other unchecked emotions to run the show, instead of making logical and reasonable decisions.”

King added that coming up with a fair custody arrangement will benefit not only both parents but also, and more importantly , the children involved.

Another mistake made by parents in a child custody battle is trying too hard to minimize the other party’s parenting time and involvement with the children.

When asked to elaborate, King said, “The natural instinct of many is to make it seem as if they can do a better job parenting than their ex., to the point where the other parent’s involvement would be unreasonably limited., Judges tend not to look too kindly on this, mainly because the courts work off the assumption that children need both parents, and are required, by statute, to afford both parents as much time and involvement with the children as possible in the circumstances. ”

Related to this, many parents speak negatively about their ex-spouses during the custody case.

“Spouses often demean the other’s parenting skills in order to prove that they were a bad partner. However, bad-mouthing your ex will only work against you, and you'll end up looking bitter throughout the custody battle…. and, bad mouthing the other parent to the children can get you held in contempt of court," he said.

Another common misstep parents make is speaking freely to friends and family about an ongoing child custody suit.

“Information you’ve told to family or friends in confidence regarding a pending case can come back to haunt you. If details of your case make their way back to a particularly vengeful ex, then they could use this information to fight you in court.”

King added that parents often make the faulty assumption that their lawyer will do all the work.

“Even if you hire the cream of the crop of family lawyers, you are still going to have to put in the effort to ensure that you’re putting your best foot forward in a child custody suit. Important work that every parent needs to do is helping to compile the facts and evidence that the lawyer will need in order to present a strong case.."

King was quick to add that the effort put into the case by parents will complement the strategy devised by a lawyer.

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 16, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Virtual reality helps police learn to interact with autistic

Jun 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — An autistic man walks out of a store without paying for a toy he picked up. He's followed by a storekeeper demanding he come back inside. The situation quickly escalates, and police are called. Officers arrive, their patrol car's lights flashing and sirens blaring, to find the man in the parking lot, yelling and not responding to their commands. They have a choice: confront the man and risk having the situation turn violent or regroup to figure out a different approach. The scenario is part of a virtual reality simulation for police that's being developed by Axon —...

Anti-groping smartphone app highly popular in Japan

Jun 16, 2019

TOKYO — A smartphone app developed by Japanese police is being widely downloaded by women trying to protect themselves from gropers on packed rush-hour trains. The "Digi Police" app was originally issued by Tokyo police three years ago, but a function to scare off molesters was only added a few months ago. Since then, the app has reportedly been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times — unusual for a government-developed mobile application. Women in crowded trains and other public places in Japan often face sexual harassment, but are typically too afraid to call out for help. With the app, victims...

Nonprofits turn to cryptocurrency to help needy Venezuelans

BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela — Andreina Cordero started the year skipping meals so her three kids could eat. Her husband, a construction worker, was out of a job. And the family's savings had been devastated by the nation's hyperinflation, limiting Cordero's children to a diet of rice, beans, pasta and fried corn patties. But the family got a break from their daily struggle to feed themselves this spring when a social worker enrolled them in a program run by a Silicon Valley startup that is donating cryptocurrency to hundreds of Venezuelan families. Every week from February to April, Cordero received a deposit...
