Know about these recent changes to Florida child custody law

Your child custody proceeding is a serious matter that requires serious representation. Although divorce comes along with a variety of legal issues, few have the same emotional component associated with a child custody negotiation. Determining visitation and crafting a parenting plan can be stressful and time-consuming, especially if you do not have appropriate legal representation. No matter your personal situation, you deserve a legal team that can represent your interests throughout your Florida divorce proceeding.

Workplace provisions for victims of domestic violence

Many divorce filings in Florida relate to domestic violence or some other type of abuse. Victims of domestic violence may have more rights than they think, however. Special protections may extend to some domestic violence victims through their workplace, for example. Knowing your rights under Florida law can help you improve the safety and welfare of your family in the face of abuse and other family issues.

Premarital and postmarital agreements both valuable in divorce

You might be familiar with the concept of a prenuptial agreement, but did you know that it is possible to create a similar document after you tie the knot? Prenuptial and postmarital agreements both play an important role in financial planning and potential property division. Whether you are looking to protect your business assets, family heirlooms or your kids' inheritance, a postmarital agreement might just be the answer.

When circumstances change, child support orders may be altered

Parents with cases within the Florida Child Support Program can seek an alteration of the child support agreement under certain circumstances. Modifications may be granted if the person receiving child support is doing so through the program, the support has not been modified within the past three years and circumstances for one or more parent has changed.

Your bad marriage could cost you during property division

Couples may be able to resolve some of the following financial concerns through the division of marital property that occurs during divorce.

How do Florida courts determine the best interests of the child?

When deciding on a child custody case, Florida courts do their best to decide the case in the best interest of the child or children.

Though each state or court may differ slightly in determining such things, there are general guidelines and definitions that are followed.
