What can help a father optimize visitation time?

If you are a recently divorced father who has been granted visitation rights, you may be trying to figure out how to make your new arrangements work. You may even feel a little apprehensive about how your divorce will affect your relationship with your children. After all, you will now be seeing your children according to a prearranged schedule, rather than every day at home.

Mediation has its benefits in a divorce

Divorce can be a very strenuous and stressful time - for both parties involved. Having mediation during divorce proceedings can bring down the levels of stress greatly for a number of factors. It is a good resource to have in place, even if you do wind up having to go to trial to end the marriage.

Child custody is not just for divorcing couples

When most people think about child custody, they look no further than a divorcing couple arguing about which parent a child will live with after the marriage has ended, and how much visitation the non-custodial parent will be entitled to. This is perhaps the most important aspect of child custody, but it is by no means the only child custody issue that may arise. In fact, parents do not even have to divorce for child custody to become an issue.

How long am I entitled to receive child support?

Child support is an extremely important aspect of family law that is designed to ensure that a parent with primary custody is able to provide a child or children with all of the necessities of a healthy upbringing without sacrificing too much time spent with the child or children. It is possible to earn enough money to provide for a child's upbringing, but it could be at the expense of being able to spend the time necessary to ensure the child is succeeding in academic and social settings.

Florida alimony bill vetoed by governor

Gov. Scott recently vetoed an alimony reform bill that in Florida for reasons that many people found to be significant and important for divorced and divorcing couples.

Taking custody matters into your own hands is never the answer

Child custody matters are understandably important to many people, and it can feel very unfair when you are suddenly told by the courts that you can no longer see your child regularly. In such instances, it can be tempting to ignore the court's orders and make any attempt to see your child, but this is extremely inadvisable. Attempting to bypass court orders can actually harm your chances of ever regaining custody of your child.
