Technology adds new dimension to child visitation

Technology is changing the way divorced parents communicate with their children. Florida is one of a handful of states that has embraced virtual visitation as a way for non-custodial parents to keep in touch with their offspring. Sometimes referred to as 'Internet visitation," technology used for this purpose is a growing trend, with courts in other states considering allowing it as part of a parenting plan.

Reality stars in child custody battle

Florida fans of the Bravo reality series "Southern Charm" may be interested in learning that two of the show's stars, Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, are likely headed to court in their child custody dispute. The pair shares two young children, and both have lodged numerous allegations against one another via social media.

Child support considerations may include education

Parents who get divorced may need to give special consideration to expenses like their children's educations as they seek support from their exes. In Florida and other states, courts take a number of factors into account when determining the validity of different kinds of support requests. In general, costs like private school tuition are typically funded using monies provided independently of basic child support.

When millennials decide to divorce, what are their options?

Over the course of the last few weeks, thousands of young people throughout Florida have made the proud walk across the stage to accept their college diploma, a moment that not only personifies all of their hard work, but which also signals their unofficial passage into the next stage of adulthood.

Altering a child support order in lieu of a new job

Non-custodial Florida parents who pay child support and who have started a new job might be wondering if their child support order will reflect their new income. This matter is especially important if the parent has taken a pay cut and is unable to make the same child support payments to the custodial payment. The same thing is true if the non-custodial parent's salary has increased with a new job, and the custodial parent wants to request more child support.
