Divorce in Florida can be much more complicated if children are involved. Many divorced parents have to deal with conflicts and disagreements with their exes. For example, the noncustodial parent might want to spend more time with their children, or the parents might share legal custody but disagree over issues like the child’s religion or health care. In most cases, it is best to try to reach a compromise with the other parent. If this does not work, a parent could bring the issue to court.
If parents have joint custody but one does the bulk of the child raising, that parent might begin to feel overburdened. Conflicts can also arise if one parent wants the child to move in with them.
A parent might be concerned if the other parent is taking the children on trips without informing them. Such issues could also lead to fears over a possible abduction. Another issue that may arise is that one parent may be concerned about a child’s safety in the other parent’s home. Finally, if one parent decides to relocate far away, this could change visitation schedules.
A parent might want to discuss some of these issues with an attorney if they are not able to reach a compromise with the other parent. In some cases, such as with a relocation, it might be necessary to go to court and get permission to move away with the child. However, with other issues, a better approach might be for parents to reach an agreement between themselves. A lawyer could help a client negotiate an agreement with the other parent.
