Florida Child Custody Matters
In Florida, a Parenting Plan, either Supervised (“Safety Focused”) or Unsupervised, is required in all cases involving time-sharing (custody) of minor children. At a minimum, the Parenting Plan must describe (in detail) the responsibility for the daily tasks that are necessary to complete in the raising of the children. The time-sharing arrangements must be established. These will specify the dates/times that the minor children will spend with each parent. The responsibility for health care, school-related matters and all other activities must also be clarified. The means and methods that will be employed to foster communication between the child and parent must also be discussed.
Florida Child Support Matters
Under Florida law, children are due support from their parents (and sometimes others) until they reach the age of majority. There are many factors which come into play in the Florida family court’s decision as to who should be making payments and how much they should be paying. Our Miami Divorce Attorney helps Florida families grapple with these issues.
In a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, the court may grant alimony to either party, which alimony may be bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, durational, or permanent in nature or any combination of these forms of alimony. In any award of alimony, the court may order periodic payments or payments in lump sum or both. The court may consider the adultery of either spouse and the circumstances thereof in determining the amount of alimony, if any, to be awarded.
Prior to marriage, it’s a good idea to attempt to clarify the rights and duties of the engaged couple so that they are absolutely clear about post-dissolution disposition of their marital and pre-marital assets. If the engaged couple has the foresight to come to an agreement beforehand, it provides each of the parties with peace of mind as they know exactly where they stand should their marriage end prematurely.
