    The Presumption of 50/50 timesharing

    Is it going to actually pass as a law? The presumption of 50/50 timesharing is a hot topic concern in the halls of justice in Florida. For several years the family law community has been debating whether to take the 50/50 timesharing issue from letting a judge determine its usage for the care and nurturing of minor children to making this presumption a law. Several attempts have been made to have appropriate bills passed and signed, but to date, this has not happened. However, at present, there is a strong bill that is making its way through the Florida law-making process,...

    Talking Parents vs. Our Family Wizard

    All About The “Talking Parents” Communication Website And How It Compares To Florida’s Our Family Wizard Site Raising children with care and nurturing has never been an easy task, no matter how many years you go back in history. The responsibility of seeing to the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual development of a human child from birth to age l8 and sometimes further can, at times, seem overwhelming. And, when a family is broken for reasons of divorce (dissolution of marriage) or separation, in the case of parenting outside of marriage, any minor child born or adopted by the couple will...

    There is No Favoritism in The Law

    For many years it seemed that family courts were biased in favor of one party or the other in a divorce, especially when minor children were involved. As time has gone on, however, family courts have changed in the way they administer justice until there is now no favoritism in a judge's decision regarding divorce issues such as alimony, child support, and who will care for and nurture the minor children. (A child is considered a minor from infancy to age l8 and beyond if the child is unable to support themselves due to severe mental or physical disability.). Here...

Looking at planning a divorce, for example, you will see there are definite advantages to finding the right Family Law lawyer as soon as you are thinking about divorce.

    Should We Tell the Kids We Are Getting Divorced?

    The question, should we tell the kids we are getting a divorce? has an answer in the affirmative, but that answer will have a lot of considerations attached to it. Let’s look at the how, when, what, and even where you can tell your kids you are getting a divorce. The first consideration is the age of the children in question. Usually, the younger the child, the less information will be needed, although explaining what a divorce is may be necessary. School-age children will likely have friends whose parents are divorced, so they will be familiar with such issues as timesharing...

    Is a Yearly Bonus Considered in Child Support or Alimony

    A bonus is an amount of money paid to an employee over and above their regular paycheck. In most instances, a bonus occurs once a year, often at the end of the year though there are times when a bonus is paid more often. Sometimes the bonus is paid simply because the employee has completed a given amount of time with their organization, and a bonus is given to all workers, the amount depending on how long they have been employed. Other times a bonus is given as an incentive for work done or a goal reached. This second type...

    Holiday Timesharing Trumps Regular Timesharing Schedule

    If you have gone through a divorce or separation involving minor children, you and the court will have established a parenting plan and a timesharing arrangement. The information included will be a part of your divorce decree ordered by a judge, and it must be followed, even during the holiday season. As the holiday season fast approaches, it is wise to read over your parenting plan and parental timesharing order details. Neither party can change any part of these agreements outside of returning to court for an official ruling by a judge to make a change. And then there must...

    It is highly unlikely anyone would find going through a divorce to be relatively stress-free. In fact, going through a divorce is usually extremely stressful, often resulting in sleepless nights, weight loss, emotional outbursts, feeling of abandonment, and a sense of loss, particularly loss of self-esteem. While there is no magic pill or potion one can take to eliminate stress, there are a number of ways to combat the stress and often take stress down to a reasonable level. Here are ten suggestions that may help you: Try to work your marital issues out in mediation and create a marital...

    How Long Does a Divorce Take Is A Question?

    Parental Timesharing, Parenting Plans, and School Boundary Issues

    In Florida, when there are minor children and Family Court must be involved in their wellbeing, there are firm guidelines regarding how the child’s care and nurturing should occur. These guidelines apply to all couples who have created or adopted a child together, whether they were ever married or even lived together. In Florida, all parents are legally responsible for their children from birth to age l8 and longer if the child cannot, for mental or physical reasons, support themselves. “In the best interest of the child” is the motto of Florida Family Court, and parents do not have to...
