Same-sex couples could face visitation issues

The plight of same-sex couples to be treated equally under the law has been very long and well documented. For years, same-sex couples have been struggling to have some of the same simple rights that heterosexual couples enjoy, most specifically the right to marry. While a recent Supreme Court decisions finally granted this right to same-sex couples, marriage is only a part of the picture when dealing with families and the law.

Florida child support laws can be very complex

Compared to some other states, Florida has very specific laws and guidelines when it comes to child support. Most people probably assume that the circumstances of their lives and custody arrangements will play a part in determining child support, with parents that have larger roles in the custodial arrangement paying less money in child support. This is true in Florida, but you may be surprised at how time spent with your child can affect your child support requirements.

Child custody in the Sunshine State

Marriage is a wonderful thing that brings happiness to many people, but unfortunately not all marriages have a happy ending. For one reason or another, a once happy couple may begin to drift apart and realize that they are no longer right for each other. While attempting to work out your differences is certainly an option, for some people, divorcing and finding love somewhere else is the only way to find happiness. However, if a couple has children together, divorce proceedings can be complicated.

Helping Florida residents get the visitation they deserve

Custody laws vary by state, but in nearly every state there is some form of law regulating custody agreements between divorcing parents who both wish to spend time with their children. In Florida, these laws are governed by a parenting plan, which is a legal document outlining the relationship that each parent has with a child, including how much time parents are allowed to spend with the child, which decisions they are legally allowed to make and more.
