How domestic violence affects children

As we have discussed previously on this blog, there are many factors that go into determining what constitutes a child's best interest for child custody purposes. Matters such as each parent's financial health, mental well-being, and relationship with the child can all play a significant role in a court's child custody determination. Other issues can have a profound impact, too. For example, we previously discussed the effects of substance abuse on a child's welfare. A child who is exposed to substance abuse can develop social and emotional issues that are detrimental to their well-being. This evidence can be powerful at a child custody hearing.

Florida courts can order electronic communication with children

The outcome of a child custody dispute can reshape your relationship with your child. If a court determines that one parent should have sole physical custody of the child with limited visitation with the noncustodial parent, then that noncustodial parent may struggle to maintain and build the bond between him or herself and his or her child. This is why Florida parents need to be prepared with strong legal arguments when dealing with these matters.

We can help address immigration and family law issues

If you're an immigrant and have been following the news, then you might be concerned about your future. On account of this, you may be afraid to take any kind of action that might draw attention to your immigration status. This includes divorce. Although proposed changes to the immigration system may have you worried, you should take comfort in the fact that there are usually legal avenues available to protect you and your loved ones.

Creating a child-centered custody agreement

Divorce is rarely an easy process for any couple, and is especially complicated for parents who choose to end their marriage. While it is relatively simple to get married, the law requires couples to make many agreements about how to divide their assets and liabilities as well as how to raise children in their family.

Can divorce affect my immigration status?

Divorce can be emotionally tumultuous for anyone, but immigrants oftentimes find the process even more anxiety-ridden than others. There's good reason, too. Depending on the circumstances, a divorce can disrupt an immigrant's path to legal permanent resident status, and it may even lead to removal from the country. We hope this post will shed some light on the topic so that immigrants can make more fully informed decisions about whether divorce is truly in their best interests.

Financial concerns drive divorce but prenuptial agreements help

There are many reasons why marriages fail. Infidelity, emotional and physical abuse, and simply falling out of love are common causes. However, perhaps the biggest issues contributing to divorce are those pertaining to money. All too often, couples find themselves fighting over how to spend their marital funds and deal with debt. Issues of trust can arise in this arena, which can fester and give rise to resentment and spite.
