How fathers may increase their chances of getting custody

In some cases, fathers in Florida who are getting a divorce might want to seek full custody of their children. However, they might be worried that they are at a disadvantage. There is a popular image of some fathers as being deadbeat or absent dads. Furthermore, courts have traditionally assumed the mother would be a better full-time parent for children. Fathers may increase their likelihood of gaining custody if they can demonstrate a strong relationship with the child.

Protecting non-physical assets in your prenuptial agreement

It is difficult to think about the possibility of divorce before you even walk down the aisle, but many Florida couples see the benefit in drafting prenuptial agreements. This type of legal agreement is not necessary in every situation, but it can be particularly useful if you want to protect specific assets. 

New model may help with Florida child support enforcement

If a 2019 fiscal year budget request from the White House and Department of Health and Human Services is granted, $63 million will go toward a federal effort to collect child support. The Child Support Technology Fund would be used to monitor payment and enforcement, and states themselves would be able to have access to the system directly.

Living arrangements are key to divorce strategy

When Florida couples decide to end a marriage, one of the first issues is working through living arrangements. Thinking about where to live can be overwhelming, but it is a necessary part of the process. Divorcing couples must balance individual needs with emotional, logistical and financial realities to find the right situation.

Avoiding a custody battle in divorce

Parents in Florida who are getting a divorce and want custody of their children might want to avoid a fight with their spouse about the issue. Conflict between parents during a divorce can be upsetting for children, but parents might be able to resolve their issues without turning to a long court battle.

The types of child custody

Parents in Florida who are getting a divorce might be curious about the different types of child custody options that exist. The two main kinds of child custody are physical and legal. Physical custody dictates which parent a child lives with, and legal custody signifies which parent has the right make decisions about things such as the child's health care, religion and education. Both of these kinds of custody could be sole or joint.
