Divorcing parents can plan with a visitation schedule

Divorcing parents may deal with child custody in a number of ways. For example, many share joint custody, in which both parents have approximately equal parenting time and decision-making responsibility for the children. In these instances, the children frequently travel back and forth between the homes of both parents. Other Florida families may have one parent retain sole or primary custody of the child while the other parent has visitation time.

Omissions from your parenting plan could lead to complications

As a Florida parent, you know that child custody is one of the most complex aspects of a divorce. Parenting time, parental rights and your emotional connection with your children are worth protecting, and the terms of your parenting plan will affect your life for many years. Your parenting plan is important, and it is worth ensuring it is thoughtful, thorough and reasonable. 

Federal child support agency works to improve collection process

For people in Florida concerned about receiving child support, new improvements to the federal system could better ensure that payments are processed properly. In the fiscal year 2016, almost $33 billion in child support payments were collected by the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement. Of those, 75 percent were processed through income withholding via the payroll process at the payer's place of employment. The OCSE is working to make changes to improve its cooperation with payroll professionals.

How to pay child support

Parents in Florida and elsewhere may have several different options when it comes to making child support payments. Among the most convenient options may be using direct deposit to ensure that money is sent on time each month. However, noncustodial parents may also choose to mail a check or money order to the custodial parent instead.
