Financial support is determined by a statutory formula in Florida based primarily on the parents’ income. I will guide you through the process and help you understand your options and obligations.
Child Pickup/Return Orders
When a career opportunity or other factors are leading you to move away from your current location, you must follow certain statutory requirements before relocating your children. Let’s discuss your options and what changes can and should be made before you take any action.
Paternity provides rights to both the child and the parents regarding support and custody.
Just in time for Father’s Day, 2023, the new law in Florida makes it easier for men with children born out of wedlock to establish their rights and be known as the child’s parent with all rights and responsibilities. If both Mother and Father sign an Acknowledgement of Voluntary Paternity, a court could then bestow on both equal say in their child’s education, health care, religion, time-sharing, and safety, among other things.
Beginning July 2023, a new alimony law makes broad changes regarding various aspects of alimony, including the criteria for modification. The most significant change is the elimination of permanent alimony in favor of a formula-based system that establishes both the maximum length of time alimony can be paid and caps the amount.
In Florida, the court may grant alimony to either party: temporary, bridge-the-gap, rehabilitative, or durational alimony. As your attorney, I will explain and guide you through the process of paying or receiving alimony.
Division of Assets
Florida is what is known as an “Equitable Distribution State”. Courts generally begin with a 50/50 division of assets unless an inequitable distribution is warranted. As your attorney, I will provide you with the legal guidance needed for a fair outcome.
If your financial or life circumstances have changed since your initial divorce settlement, child support agreement, or other legal decisions were made, it is essential we review and update them to reflect your current situation.
