The decision to get divorced is often one you consider carefully. Once you make the decision, you might think that the hard work is over, but in reality, it is only the beginning.
When the family court issues an order for parenting and timesharing - called child custody in most states - it can be devastating if the order is not in your favor. Perhaps the child’s other parent made false, but persuasive, accusations that you were unfit to parent, or you did not have the right legal representation to properly stand up for your parental rights.
We live in an age of increasing numbers of blended families. Divorces and remarriages are common across the nation. Stepparents take on many of the duties and responsibilities encountered in the daily care of children in a blended family. But stepparents do not have the same legal rights and responsibilities as birth parents under Florida law. This means that a stepparent does not have a legal responsibility to pay child support.
The Coronavirus pandemic has provided families with numerous challenges over the past year. Adding the question of Covid-19 vaccination adds another issue to be considered. This is especially true for divorced families with children.
Divorce often accompanies financial stress. Money concerns can lead couples to divorce, and these concerns can only increase as you face the process of ending your marriage. It is natural to wonder whether it is worth it to pay fees to hire a lawyer, and the answer is that it is always wise to consult with a Daytona divorce lawyer about your upcoming case.
Time-sharing is a highly important matter for any parents who are getting divorced or otherwise ending their relationships. When two parents live separately, it is necessary to determine when the child will live with each parent, which is referred to as time-sharing under Florida law.
Alimony is not an issue that arises in every divorce, but when it does, it can significantly impact the financial futures of both ex-spouses following the divorce. Whether you are seeking alimony or might have to pay alimony, you might have many questions, including how it might affect your taxes.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented time for families in Florida, putting a strain on many marriages. Whether pandemic-related issues caused you to seek a divorce or you were already headed down that path...
