    Social Media Posts and Photos Can Be Used Against You in Court

    Social media, the blessing, and curse of the modern world. YouTube, Facebook, Tumbler, Twitter, Snapchat, Instant Messenger, Linkedin, Instagram, and Pinterest are examples of social media options. It is amazing to be able to talk with and see people around the world. You can take videos of activities, people, and just about anything the mind can think up. Information is non-ending, and music and art abound. Authors Marisa A. Tradatti and Anna C. Horevay  write, “There is a whole generation of people for whom tweeting is as natural as breathing, for whom the word ‘friend’ has become a verb and...

    What is a Retainer? Why Do I Have to Pay One?

    A retainer, in the legal sense, is an up-front fee paid by a potential client to ‘’retain” or hold the time and expenses an attorney may need to litigate a case properly. The definition of payment by retainer provided by the Legal Information Institute is “A fee that the client pays up-front to an attorney before the attorney has begun work for the client.” A specific outcome is not guaranteed, but rather the attorney will be working on the client’s behalf until an outcome is reached. There are three types of retainers: Retaining fee: an up-front retaining fee held by...

    How Might Virtual Learning and Working from Home Affect Shared Parenting and Child Support?

    Due to the COVID pandemic, working from home and virtual learning has now been in effect for many months and, in some areas, is still an everyday occurrence. In fact, some soothsayers are predicting that this change in the way we live is becoming the new norm. In many instances, schools and businesses are finding it financially beneficial to keep doors closed, and students and employees studying and working from home. For some, this change in venue is welcomed, but for many, especially those who depend on parenting plans and child support, there are and will continue to be possible...

    What is Income for the Purposes of Child Support (fla. stat 61.13)

    Child support in Florida is mandatory, whether the parents have been married and are getting a divorce, have lived together and are separating, or have never lived together longer than to create a child. Family law in Florida is very conscientious regarding the care and nurturing of minor children and stands by the phrase "in the best interest of the child." It goes without saying that it costs money to raise a child from birth to l8 years and beyond if the child has special needs and cannot care or provide for themself independently. In Florida Statute 61:13, which you...

    Factors for the Calculation of Child Support

    In the state of Florida, the awarding of child support is mandatory whether the parents have been married or even have lived together. When paternity is proven, a child is born during a marriage, ora child legally adopted, the issue of calculating child support will become a part of a dissolution of marriage (divorce), separation of parents, or when a child is born to a couple. Child support can also be given to a third party who is given legal custody of a minor child when the court rules neither party is able to parent effectively. A side note, child...

    How Does Alimony Affect Child Support?

    Going through a dissolution of marriage (divorce) in Florida when there are minor children, that is children under the age of l8 or who cannot take care of themselves, requires the awarding of child support. To calculate which parent will be the receiver and which parent the giver, and how much monthly payment will be ordered, Florida Family Law has developed a Child Support Guidelines Worksheet. Such factors as income, health insurance costs, mandatory expenses (example special dietary food requirement), and special expenses such as the cost of travel to and from work will be taken into account. You can...
