What methods does Florida employ to enforce support obligations?

Being a non-custodial parent who is having difficulties keeping up with child support obligations can be extremely stressful and discouraging. Often it is not a lack of desire that prevents a parent from making timely payments, but rather a lack of funds. Making ends meet can be a challenge in the best of circumstances, but it can be especially hard if you have a chunk of your income dedicated to child support.

Proper representation is very helpful when dealing with the DFC

It would be wonderful if old TV shows like "The Brady Bunch" or "Growing Pains" were accurate portraits of family life. On those shows, problems were always small and solved before the closing credits. But unfortunately, families often lead complicated lives and sometimes mothers or fathers have serious personal issues. And if these issues are serious enough in nature, they may attract the attention of the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Fathers' right movement has helped push for positive changes

Sometimes fathers are fearful of the prospect of fighting for custody of their children during a divorce. Such apprehension is easy to understand. For many years, the courts granted sole custody of children to mothers almost by rote. And too often, men were left with unfavorable terms that limited their access to their children.

Divorcing? You can protect the stuff in your home when you're not

Divorce is a difficult time for anybody wading through the emotional and physical detachment of a dying relationship. What may have started out as an amicable agreement to part ways can devolve into a lengthy process of name calling, finger pointing and a tug of war over property.

Florida law grants grandparents visitation rights

Being a grandparent has so many benefits. There is no time better spent than being with your grandchildren and showering them with love and affection. And no grandparent should have that opportunity unfairly taken away. Unfortunately, sometimes circumstances can develop that threaten a grandparent's relationship with his or her grandchild.
