Planning to co-parent following divorce

Parents in Florida often have worries about how they will share the parenting duties with their former spouses after divorcing, especially as they will no longer live in the same homes. Transitioning to co-parenting can be confusing and difficult, but many people enjoy great success with joint custody or visitation. By keeping a few principles at the forefront, individuals can help protect their children and maintain positive, supportive relationships.

The financial support of one spouse after divorce

Divorce is a financially complex process for both parties, especially if there is significant financial inequity between them. In many cases, the lesser earning spouse will have a rightful claim to financial support from the other spouse. Florida readers know this is spousal support, also called alimony or spousal maintenance.

Child support and joint custody

One of the custody arrangements that Florida parents may be given if they get divorced is joint custody, or the shared legal and physical custody of their children. This means that both parents take part in the daily responsibilities of raising the children, which includes contributing financially.

How to meet parenting challenges after divorce

Parents in Florida who choose to get divorced will need to continue to raise their children together. This can be difficult even if the divorce was relatively peaceful. However, it can be made easier by keeping the focus on doing what is best for the child. Generally, fighting or acting in a less than mature manner around the kids does not help to meet that goal.
