Florida child support lawyers who understand modern families

The traditional roles of parents have changed considerably throughout the nation over time. Once upon a time throughout America, divorce was considered socially unacceptable. Perhaps due to the relatively small number of women in the workforce back then, courts throughout the country typically awarded custody of any children involved in a divorce to the mother. Those same courts also usually sought to levy alimony or spousal support payments against the children's father.

Who is more likely to initiate a divorce?

Scientists have known for some time that women are more likely than men to initiate a divorce, but a new study is shedding light on why. In decades past, experts believed that women were simply more sensitive to relationship issues and feel issues are more significant than men do. However, the new study by a Stanford University associate professor has shown that the statistics of women being more likely to end the relationship only holds true for marriage.

What does a guardian ad litem do?

Custody issues are very rarely ever pleasant, but if you're in the middle of a heated dispute with your ex over an issue involving your children, you know just how stressful and scary it can be. When parents are at odds over what is best for their children, the courts will often appoint a guardian ad litem to protect the child's best interests throughout the court matter. Understanding just what a guardian ad litem is and what they do can help you navigate this challenging time.

Celebrity comment about prenuptial agreements is revealing

Among other things, prenuptial agreements are essentially legal documents that specify which property and assets belong to either party prior to a marriage. Prenuptial agreements can also provide an outline for how those assets and properties should be distributed in the event that the marriage ends, or in case of a spouse's death or incapacity.

The power of Florida’s domestic violence injunctions

An injunction may sound like a complicated legal term, yet it is really nothing more than a court order. Specifically, a domestic violence injunction is a court order directing someone to refrain from having contact with someone whom he or she has either physically assaulted or placed in fear of imminent threat of assault.

What if my ex wants to homeschool?

While some may think of homeschooling as a fringe education option, the reality is that more and more parents are considering it. There are also many different kinds of homeschooling options available today, including co-ops and online schools, which further increase its popularity. However, many parents have strong views on their children's education, and when the parents are divorced and one parent opposes the homeschooling, it can lead to legal issues.

My ex is moving. Now what?

While many parents breathe a sigh of relief when the divorce is final and the custody and visitation settled, that's not always the end of the matter. As children get older and the parents' circumstances change, custody arrangements and visitations schedules often do as well. One common reason for a change in these matters is when one parent is planning a significant move.
