Other topics covered include determining parenting time, including court jurisdictional issues, the best-interests standard, establishing visitation, modifying parenting time, and removal of the child; allegations of child abuse; establishing child support, from minor age to nonminor children and their college education expenses; parental child abduction; gestational surrogacy; and domestic violence. The handbook also contains sample petitions, including a petition to establish paternity and support by consent; a petition for temporary child support and other relief; a petition for modification of child support, reimbursement for costs, and other relief; and a petition for abatement or suspension of child support.
