Divorcing with children in Florida

On Behalf of | Oct 19, 2023 | Family Law

When spouses decide to grow their family, they often imagine watching their children grow into adulthood, bringing their grandchildren to visit as they grow old together. While this is the ideal situation, it is not always a reality.

As such, divorcing with children is a real matter many families need to navigate, while also creating a future with the best interests of the children in mind. For many divorcing Florida parents, disagreements and ongoing divorce issues can impact the family law issues they need to sort out. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the full picture, what your needs are and what is truly in the best interests of the children.

Child custody issues

Creating a parenting plan is not always easy, and the attorneys at Grossman LeMontang De La Fuente, PLLC, can affirm this. Although a joint custody arrangement is presumed to be the best custody plan, there are some factors that could prove otherwise. Thus, our firm focuses on the details of the matter while assessing the needs and wants of our clients.

Both legal custody and physical custody needs to be established. If divorcing parents can agree to this, it can make the process much easier. However, if there is no initial agreement, mediation might be necessary to negotiate and talk through an agreeable arrangement. Finally, if mediation fails, litigation is the next step.

If the matter moves forward to litigation, our law firm ensures that your wishes are paramount. We collect all necessary evidence to illustrate why your requests should be affirmed.

Child support

Finances are often a culprit of divorce filing. Thus, when child support is requested, there is often pushback on the amount owed. Our law firm uses the formula set by Florida law, ensuring that the proper amount is requested. Additionally, if circumstances allow, we are prepared to present evidence as to why a deviation is needed.

Navigating family law issues is anything by easy. It is an emotional and overwhelming process that can make the divorce process even more challenging. Although it might seem far away, there is light at the end of the tunnel. With legal guidance and support, you can get through your divorce and move forward with your single life.
