The purpose of supervised visitation

During some divorce and custody cases, courts must make decisions about which parent will watch over the children and how visitation time will be divided. While most parents are able to work out a custody plan that works for their family, some cases are brought to a judge. In Florida, there is no presumption that parents should share joint custody.

Tyrese Gibson may serve as his own attorney in custody hearing

Fans of Tyrese in Florida may be interested in the actor's ongoing custody battle. Singer and actor Tyrese is no longer being represented by his attorney. In the custody battle, Tyrese is expected to act as his own legal counsel. There is also the chance that he will find another attorney prior to the hearing. His former wife is seeking a permanent restraining order against her ex-husband after claiming that Tyrese beat the couple's 10-year-old child.

Should you protect yourself with a prenuptial agreement?

If you are preparing to be married, you know that there is a lot of planning involved with taking this step. However, planning the wedding is just the first step — there are ways that you can prepare and protect yourself far beyond just the day you get married. One of the ways you can do this is by having a prenuptial agreement drafted.

Co-parenting after a violent marriage

Florida couples who experienced conflict and violence during their marriage might be fearful of co-parenting after divorce. The concern is that the violent behavior of the abusive spouse will continue, potentially putting the other spouse, and even the children, at risk. A study by researchers at the University of Illinois explored this issue, with some conclusions that might be surprising to couples going through this.

Dads can hold on to parental closeness after a divorce

Fathers in Florida may be worried about the impact their divorce may have on their children. While they're ready to move on from a relationship that hasn't worked out, it's important for fathers to remain close and connected to their children. Losing that contact can be one of the greatest fears a dad faces when going through the end of a marriage.
