How does Florida treat grandparents' visitation rights?

Custody issues such as visitation are often hotly debated amongst divorced or divorcing parents, but so much focus put on the custody and visitation rights of parents, grandparents are sometimes ignored or neglected. There are very few established rules when it comes to grandparents' rightss, and most issues are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. However, even though the rules tend to vary by state, each state has precedents that may help grandparents understand what they can expect.

Florida couple fleeing to keep custody of their children

Earlier in the year, Florida's Department of Children and Families discovered a family in Daytona Beach living in what the agency described as deplorable conditions. The family consisted of a couple and two young children, and it now seems that the family is on the run. Official reports claim that the couple have a history of refusing to cooperate with the agency, which is now seeking custody of the five and four-year-old children.

Florida fathers deserve fair custody arrangements

There is a fairly pervasive belief that courts favor mothers when it comes to custody disputes, largely because historical evidence indicates that women were granted sole custody more than men. Fortunately for fathers in modern times, courts are starting to recognize that steady interaction with both parents is best for a child. As a result, more and more divorced Floridian families are seeing equal parenting time, which is good news for children and fathers alike.

Failing to pay child support can cause legal issues

Child support is rarely an easy issue to resolve among divorced or divorcing couples, especially depending on the custody agreement. If one parent spends significantly more time with the child, that parent may feel that they are entitled to more child support than they receive. Likewise, depending on the other parent's income or lifestyle, they may feel that they are being asked to pay too much in child support.
