Project to help co-parents work together after divorce

When parents divorce, the most contentious issues are usually child-related. Sometimes, Florida parents are unable to agree, leaving their children in the middle. Fortunately, Florida State University researchers have acquired a grant in the amount of $250,000 to develop an online toolkit for co-parenting after divorce. 

How pets are treated during property division

Property division and other financial matters are usually negotiated in divorce. Besides homes, Florida spouses often have disputes regarding who gets to keep the pet during property division. Most areas treat pets as property while others allow owners to have custody arrangements.

Man arrested for owing over $11,000 in child support

Courts typically require non-custodial parents to pay child support to provide for the financial needs of their children. Support can be ordered even without official child custody agreements. Florida parents who do not pay court-ordered child support are at risk of having their wages garnished from their paychecks or going to jail until paid in full. One man in another area was recently arrested after he apparently failed to pay child support.

Man still owes child support for deceased child

In some cases, custodial parents end up owed large sums of money by non-custodial parents who fail to pay their court-ordered child support payments. For this reason, Florida parents who do not pay child support can face wage garnishment or even jail time. However, not everything in the system is foolproof, and, in one case, a father is still paying child support for a child who died years ago.
