Parental alienation a controversial issue

"Parental alienation" is a controversial concept in family courts in Florida and across the country. It revolves around the idea that one parent can brainwash children to wrongly believe they are being abused by the other parent, and it leaves family court judges with the difficult responsibility of determining whether abuse is actually taking place. If a judge is wrong, a child can be placed in danger or an innocent parent's life can be ruined.

Parenting and summer vacation in Florida

The summer months are meant to be a time when children and their parents can create lifelong memories. However, this may be more difficult to do when the police are called or parents are in court because of a child custody dispute. Parents who share custody of their children may be able to avoid disputes over who has the children over the summer through good planning and communication.

Virtual visitation and its impact on Florida parents

As technology evolves, virtual visitation is becoming an option for non-custodial parents to stay in their child's life. Virtual visitation may take the form of email, sending instant messages or using a webcam to communicate. The right to have virtual visitation is generally negotiated as part of a parenting plan or granted by a judge.
