Who Pays the Attorney Fees in Child Custody Cases

Child custody in Florida is mainly concerned with the concept of parental timesharing, which includes the equal care and nurturing of children (a minor child is from birth to l8 years of age unless the child is unable to support and care for themselves due to physical and mental reasons). Included in the care and nurturing are terms of overnights, sharing responsibility for educational, spiritual, medical, and discipline concerns, and for following the parenting plan created for their minor child. The term custody is used when one or both parents cannot parent appropriately, including being in jail, having a drug...

What is a Post-Judgment Modification in Florida

To modify, according to dictionaylaw.com, is “a change in an existing court order or judgment made necessary by a change in circumstances since the order or judgment was made or to cure an error.” In Florida, post-judgment modifications can be made to alimony, child support, parental timesharing, and the parenting plan. No changes to an existing order or judgment can be made by the parties themselves but only through mediation or by a judge. In all cases where a post-judgment is requested, there must be proof of material, substantial, and unanticipated (before final judgment) change. Different modification needs can determine...

How is Paternity Established in Florida? Part One: What is paternity, and how is it established out of court?

Definition of “paternity” as found in Merriam-Webster dictionary, “the quality or state of being a father”. In other words, the man who fathers a child is considered to have the paternity of that child. While this may seem obvious to a man who thinks he is the father of a child, there can sometimes be a situation when his paternity or fatherhood is called into question. Unlike the mother who bears a child and so is most definitely the mother, it can be unclear as to precisely who is the true father. Frequently, in the contemporary society of our modern...

Timesharing Rights

Timesharing is the right of the minor child for frequent and continuing contact with the parents, not the parents’ right to see the child. It is, for this reason, the concept of doing away with primary and secondary custody and replacing this with parental timesharing, the main part of shared parenting, was instituted. Most states embrace parental timesharing, including Florida. It is still possible to have sole custody of a minor child in Florida if a parent is in jail, has been convicted of child abuse or domestic violence, is on drugs, or is mentally, emotionally, or physically incapable of...
