How shared child custody agreements benefit children

Parents who are divorced or divorcing are often still emotional over the collapse of their relationships. Because of this, many Florida parents battle with each other regarding child custody arrangements. Of course, a number of parents will argue that they are the best suitable parent for the child, but research indicates that children thrive more when they are able to spend time with both parents.

Mother loses child custody following school presentation

Child custody cases can be difficult for everyone involved. Florida parents find this even more intimidating when their children are taken by child protective services. A boy's presentation at an anti-drug event in school may have cost his mother child custody. The boy was placed with child protective services after authorities discovered marijuana in the mother's home.

Divorce from an abusive spouse allows a fresh, safe start

A divorce can be one of the most emotional experiences anyone can have to endure. However, staying in a marriage in which domestic violence is present is much worse for a spouse than divorce. In the last five years, domestic violence issues have increased throughout Florida and elsewhere in the country.

Father sentenced for non-payment of child support

Parents who fail to pay court ordered child support could find themselves in jail. Florida residents may be interested in learning about a father who will be spending the next two months in jail, even though he paid the balance owed in child support. He is known as the father who "died" to avoid meeting his child support obligations.

Major life changes can lead to divorce for Florida residents

Couples choose to divorce for a number of reasons. Some of the reasons for divorce commonly cited by Florida spouses include infidelity, financial woes and irreconcilable differences. For others, the effects of major life changes, such as child births, job changes and health issues, are the events that lead to divorce.
