Petitioning for a child custody order in Florida

If you are a parent going through divorce or separation in Florida, then you don't necessarily have to go to court in order to agree on a workable parenting plan with your co-parent. Many divorcing spouses or former unmarried partners can avoid the cost of court by reaching an out-of-court agreement.

Factors to consider when calculating Florida child support

Currently in Florida, the amount and duration of spousal support are determined on a case-by-case basis, and courts are not required to use any special guidelines when ordering alimony payments. If a spouse requests an alimony order through the court, the spouse must first prove that there is a need for support before a court order can be issued.

Florida researchers design online toolkit to facilitate healthy co-parenting after divorce

Research shows that, in America right now, about 25 percent of families are single-parent families with children younger than 18. Additionally, each year more than a million children experience their parents' divorce.

Can child support continue after a child turns 18?

Many parents are able to use Florida's child support guidelines and reach an agreement about support payments without having to ask a court to intervene. In other cases, however, court intervention is necessary.

Don't let the children's needs get overlooked in divorce

Divorce is extremely emotional, and it's understandable when parents get caught up in their own personal struggles and aren't exactly sure of how to proceed in a constructive way. While there are methods of dispute resolution that can minimize spousal friction, conflict between divorcing spouses is still a reality.
