Divorce can be difficult for an individual for a variety of reasons. For some, the financial uncertainty that accompanies marriage dissolution can be stressful, but for others the effect of a divorce on their children is paramount. This is why Floridians put forth a lot of time and effort into securing child custody and visitation arrangements that they believe further their children's best interests. Yet, even once an agreement is reached or a judge issues a custody order, the matter can pop back up at any time, potentially leading to conflict.
The American family has continued to evolve in diverse and exciting ways over successive decades. And that change has centrally embraced new attitudes concerning family law fixtures.
Not all divorced couples with children are able to maintain an amicable co-parenting relationship. It can be especially complicated if your co-parent is of foreign nationality and wants to return to his or her home country with your children. While doing so is possible, he or she would have to first file a petition in court. Unfortunately, some parents assume that their American divorce orders will no longer apply in their home country, and sometimes parents try to take their children abroad against the other parent's rights and wishes.
