New alternative dispute method used in Florida court

The goal of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods when it comes to divorce is to resolve a number of pressing family law issues without forcing spouses to go to court. A relatively new ADR method called "collaborative divorce" is now being tried out in Florida, and it appears that such a process will be subject to a number of regulations.

Financial needs of separated couples with children

The perception remains that divorce is too expensive for certain individuals. It's not so much the divorce process itself as the long term obligations of paying alimony or child support, and the fear that the other spouse may be unwilling or unable to abide by what the court has ordered.

Florida's use of parent coordinators in divorce situations

Simply because parents are divorced does not end their obligations to work with each other in the best interest of the child. Contention between the parents will ultimately hurt the child. It's because of this that Florida legislators have allowed for judges to appoint a parent coordinator that can mediate disputes after the divorce has been finalized.

Factors to be considered in child support decisions

Child support guidelines were created to provide direction to courts, but such guidelines were also designed to provide courts discretion in looking at the individual circumstances of each child's case. Florida's guidelines only differ from every other state in the particulars.
