Child custody, visitation, and the impact of a father's presence

When it comes to child custody, the law tends to favor a child's mother. For example, custody is presumed to lie with a child's mother when that child is born out of wedlock. But even married men can feel at a disadvantage when they seek child custody or visitation rights during the divorce settlement process. As discouraging as that may be, fathers in Florida should think about aggressively pursuing their legal rights, as doing so may lead to better outcomes for their children.

International abduction and the Hague Abduction Convention

Child custody arrangements can vary greatly case-by-case. In some instances, parents share time equally with their children, while other families see a custodial parent who significantly restricts a noncustodial parent's access. In today's highly mobile society, it isn't uncommon for custodial parents to seek to relocate with their children, which may not be inline with an established custody plan. Although these parents may be able to get court authorization for one of these moves, sometimes parents take their children across state lines or across international borders with the intent of disrupting a child custody arrangement. When this happens, abduction has occurred.

Divorcing with your financial future in mind

Many Floridians who are considering divorce find themselves concerned about their future financial well-being. There's good cause for concern, too. A divorce can lead to decreased income, increased expenses, and significantly reduced savings. Therefore, those who are thinking about marriage dissolution should understand how to financially protect themselves for their life after their marriage ends.

Using a prenuptial agreement to protect your business

Getting divorced is rarely easy, but it can be simplified when the parties have entered into a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. These legally binding documents can specify not only the financial responsibilities of each party during the course of marriage, but also how property will be addressed in the event of divorce. It can also dictate how other divorce legal issues like alimony will play out. Given the impact marriage dissolution can have on one's financial stability, these considerations are of paramount importance.

Competent attorney can advocate during property division process

Last week's post on the blog discussed the financial ramifications of a gray divorce. The truth of the matter, though, is that divorce can rock your finances regardless of your age, gender, length of marriage, or economic standing. The way that you handle the property division process can make all the difference, determining whether or not you have a firm financial foundation for life post-divorce.
