Child custody outcome leads to outrage from many

When two parents divorce, the focus is almost always on making things easy for their shared children. In some cases, one or both parents are concerned about the safety and well-being of their kids while in the custody of the other parent. This is especially true in cases in Florida and elsewhere in which there are other parties involved, such as stepparents or romantic partners of one or both parents. One recent child custody case centered on a father's concern about the safety of his two daughters, who were living in the home of their mother and her new husband, a convicted sex offender.

Weight loss can result from high net worth divorce

Moving from married to single can be a difficult process, even in cases where divorce is clearly the best step for all involved. For many Florida spouses who are going through a high net worth divorce, losing weight will accompany the process. This can be a good thing for some, but can lead to health issues for others. No matter if an individual is looking to shed a few extra pounds or is already in peak physical condition, it is important to make wise health decisions during this intense period of time.

What happens if child support payments are not made?

Court orders entered in conjunction with family law matters are binding for the parties who are involved. This means that there are often repercussions for both parties if one of them fails to meet the obligations outlined in those orders. Therefore, if a parent ordered to make child support payments does not make them, he or she could be found in contempt and face enforcement measures outlined under Florida law.

Heading back to school after a child custody change

With the end of summer just around the corner, many Florida parents are preparing for their children going back to school. For those who have gone through a divorce and child custody change, this year may be a bit different from those past. Many parents worry that an altered family structure will have a negative impact on their child's performance in school. The best way to address these concerns is to be proactive in structuring a supportive learning environment for each child.
