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.

Archaeologists find Rome-era tombs in Egypt's Western Desert

Jan 16, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt says archaeologists have uncovered two ancient tombs dating back to the Roman period in the country's Western Desert. The Antiquities Ministry says Tuesday the excavations took place in the Beir Al-Shaghala archaeological site in the Dakhla Oasis. Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, says the tombs were built in mud-brick with different architectural styles. He says archaeologists uncovered ancient human remains and pottery fragments inside the tombs. They also found colorful funeral paintings on the walls of both tombs. In recent years, Egypt has heavily promoted new archaeological finds to international media and...

SpaceX launches 10 more Iridium Communications satellites

Jan 16, 2019

LOS ANGELES — A SpaceX rocket delivered 10 satellites to low-Earth orbit on Friday, completing a two-year campaign by Iridium Communications Inc. to replace its original fleet with a new generation of mobile communication technology and added global aircraft tracking capability. The Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 7:31 a.m. and arced over the Pacific west of Los Angeles. The previously used first stage was recovered again with a bullseye landing on a "droneship" in the ocean while the upper stage continued on to orbit. The eighth and final launch of the $3 billion Iridium...

Experimental app might spot drug overdoses in time to help

Jan 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — Too often people die of an opioid overdose because no one's around to notice they're in trouble. Now scientists are creating a smartphone app that beams sound waves to measure breathing — and summon help if it stops. The app is still experimental. But in a novel test, the "Second Chance" app detected early signs of overdose in the critical minutes after people injected heroin or other illegal drugs, researchers reported Wednesday. One question is whether most drug users would pull out their phone and switch on an app before shooting up. The University of Washington research team...

What's in a name? 5G wireless claims, but no real network

Jan 16, 2019

NEW YORK — 5G E? 5G Plus? 5G Ultrawideband? Will the real 5G please stand up? AT&T has drawn ridicule by relabeling the network used by some of its phones as "5G E" to signal that the next-generation wireless network is here. Problem is, phones capable of connecting to 5G aren't coming for another few months, and a national 5G network won't be deployed until 2020 or 2021. But Verizon, which complained Tuesday about AT&T's move, did something similar when it launched a residential wireless service with the 5G moniker using its own proprietary technology. Although there are now industry...

Detecting depression: Phone apps could monitor teen angst

Jan 16, 2019

Rising suicide rates and depression in U.S. teens and young adults have prompted researchers to ask a provocative question: Could the same devices that some people blame for contributing to tech-age angst also be used to detect it? The idea has sparked a race to develop apps that warn of impending mental health crises. Call it smartphone psychiatry or child psychology 2.0. Studies have linked heavy smartphone use with worsening teen mental health. But as teens scroll through Instagram and Snapchat, tap out texts or watch YouTube videos, they also leave digital footprints that might offer clues to their psychological...
