    Co-parenting Post COVID

    In Florida, co-parenting is referred to as parental timesharing. A couple who has natural or adopted minor children (children from birth to age l8 or a child who cannot support themselves for mental or physical reasons) and decides to divorce, separate from a cohabitation relationship, or hasn’t lived together, will be required by Family Law Courts to share the care and nurturing of their children. Florida Family Law is built around the motto “in the best interests of the child.” As research has shown children, develop better with the influence of both parents, and parental timesharing has resulted. A parenting...

    Trial Can Be a Legal Roulette

    You never know what a judge will rule! This is so true when it comes to the final decision a judge will make concerning a case. Taking a divorce handled in Family Court in Florida, for example, a judge must rule on many issues. While there are guidelines in the Florida Statutes for divorce, it is up to a judge to decide how best to apply the guidelines to each situation. Some of the areas a judge must rule on include: Alimony: there are six types in Florida, each with its own set of qualifications. A judge must decide if alimony...

    How Does Successful Mediation Cut Costs and Give You Control of Your Divorce?

    The definition of mediation is a process in which a mediator, that is a trained, neutral third person, works with a couple and their attorneys to create a mutually acceptable agreement termed a marital settlement through a process of cooperation and negotiation. Saving money and keeping control are two aspects of a divorce case that most couples would like to take advantage of. Today’s high costs for a good attorney and the uncertainty of how a judge will rule on such issues as alimony, distribution of marital assets and liabilities, and the future care and support of minor children are a...

    Does “Presumption” Play a Part in Awarding Alimony in a Short-Term Marriage?

    Sometimes the law uses big words to define a legal situation. Such is the case with the word “presumption,” a word not commonly used. The words assume and presume, however, are frequently used and are helpful in understanding the word “presumption.” If you presume or assume something to be true or false, you base your decision on thoughts and ideas not necessarily yet proven to be fact. For example, you might presume it is cold outside, and you need to wear a coat as the furnace is running and yesterday it was cold outside. You may or may not be...

    Meaning of Continuity of a Stable, Satisfactory Environment Regarding Timesharing

    Parental timesharing for minor children has, in most states, including Florida, replaced the practice of custody for minor children where there is a primary or residential parent and a secondary or nonresidential parent. Over the years of experience and research, it has been proven that children develop to their best potential when they are cared for and nurtured by both parents. Unfortunately, in perhaps the majority of families in the US, both parents are not together whether in marriage or a living arrangement. The practice of primary and secondary custody simply does not allow a child equal access to and...

    Timesharing and Virtual Schooling during COVID

    COVID continues to dominate the way our children are educated. In many states, Florida included, many schools are closed and those that can open do so on irregular schedules, sometimes children going half days or every other day. In addition to schools being closed or off a regular schedule, most school districts offer parents a choice whether to send their child to school or keep them home and do the schooling virtually. Most states offer several ways children can be schooled at home. All this being said, if parents are forced or decide to school their children from home, that fact...

    Dissolution of Marriage During COVID

    COVID has and is affecting the way we live our everyday lives. It seems there is no area left untouched by one regulation or another, and Family Court in Florida is no exception. For those couples who are seeking dissolution of marriage (divorce), there have been significant changes in the way things are done in order to complete the process of dissolution. The main thing to be aware of regarding a dissolution hearing is that as of May 21, 2020, an issue was ordered by the Supreme Court of Florida termed the Administrative Order AOSC20-23 Amendment 2. This amendment is in...

    Be Careful What You Post on Social Media

    Social media is fast becoming the way to communicate information ideas, and often pictures to further evidence the written word. Authors Marisa A. Tradatti and Anna C. Hore vary write “There’s a whole generation of people for whom tweeting is as natural as breathing, for whom the word “friend” has become a verb and for whom Web 2.0 is the only media platform they know”. Facebook alone has over 1 billion users, approximately one-seventh of the world’s population, with other social media such as Instant Message, Twitter, YouTube, Linkedin, and just plain texting and e-mails adding countless more users to...

    Is Being Separated a Requirement for a Divorce in Florida?

    No, being separated is not a requirement for a divorce in the state of Florida. In fact, in Florida, as in five other states, Texas, Mississippi, Deleware, Pennsylvania, and Georgia,legal separation is not recognized.A couple can choose to live apart, in other words, “separate” but the Florida courts do not have a way to make this legal. However, particularly if minor children (children under 18 years of age or special needs adults) are involved the courts, usually with the help of mediation, can adjudicate issues including child support, child custody, visitation, and division of property. When determining child support payments,...
