Families facing a divorce or other family law situation have many understandable concerns and important decisions facing them. Fortunately, the family law process is available to help them every step of the way.
Couples and families with divorce-related concerns should be familiar with how family law resources can help them address concerns such as property division, alimony, child support and child custody and visitation. Divorcing couples should be familiar with equitable property division rules in Florida which govern and guide the division of property in the state. Divorcing parents should be aware that child support is calculated according to Florida law and that requests for spousal support, or alimony, look at the financial circumstances of the divorcing spouses, evaluating need and ability to pay.
Child custody and visitation concerns are another common set of concerns for divorcing couples and couples considering a divorce in Florida. The family law court will help the couple reach a child custody agreement that is in the best interests of the child. This will address time-sharing concerns and a parenting plan and visitation rights. It is also helpful for divorcing couples to be familiar with child custody or child support modification requests and how the family law court handles those. Relocation concerns may also arise and the family law process is again a resource for couples concerning those issues.

As a result, divorcing couples should be familiar with how these resources can help them which will also guide them concerning what to expect.
