Child support and establishing paternity

Unmarried parents in the state of Florida can face unique issues when attempting to resolve custody or child support matters. One of these is establishing paternity. Unlike in the case of married parents getting a divorce, paternity is not automatically assumed in the case of parents who were never married. This means establishing paternity must be the very first thing before a child support order can be initiated.

Divorced women need to think about finances

Money issues are at the heart of almost every divorce, but some people fail to think about what their finances will look like when the dust settles. Anyone going through or contemplating a divorce would do well to take extra care with their current finances as well as financial planning, but women in particular may be at a higher risk of money problems after divorce.

Domestic violence cases are complicated

Domestic violence is never a simple matter. Just like the relationships and people they involve, each domestic violence situation is unique and must be treated accordingly. At Pacheco Perez, we understand how challenging these situations are and work with you to help you understand what to expect from the courts and how to begin moving forward.

The increase in social media prenups

Concerned that you aren't going to have full control over what your spouse says about you online? You're not alone, and many people are actually getting prenuptial agreements that dictate how social media can be used after the marriage. This has been on the rise as social media grows more and more popular and widely used.

Coparenting and talking about your ex

Coparenting can be a very challenging experience. Even if you know in your mind that being civil and even friendly with your ex is best for the children, it can be difficult to actually put into action. This is especially true if the divorce was due to infidelity, abuse or issues with addiction. However, it's important to remember that no matter what happened between you and your ex, both of you are and will always be your children's parents. Taking steps to protect your child's relationship with the other parent is an important part of coparenting after divorce.

2 ways inheritance can impact child support

When you and your ex split up in Florida, one of you may be ordered to pay child support to the other. For instance, you could get custody, meaning your spouse will likely have to pay support to you to help you raise the children. This is calculated based on many factors, including available assets and income at the time of the divorce.

Child support: Dealing with unusual income sources

Physical and monetary assets normally do not factor into a child support order and how much you may pay or receive. However, high-asset divorces also often deal with high incomes, which do impact your potential child support order. These types of situations may also be more likely to include alternate sources of income, such as rental income, stock dividends and interest from financial accounts.
