Consistent coparenting after divorce

After Florida parents divorce and their children are moving back and forth between their homes, they may find that their household rules are inconsistent. This can be damaging for children who need stability and consistency at this time. Parents should sit down with a focus on the children to work out how they will make these rules consistent. If children are 6 or older, they may be able to participate in the process as well. These negotiations may go more smoothly if parents decide ahead of time which points they can compromise on and which ones they cannot.

Why moms should push for shared parenting

Many Florida mothers consider obtaining sole custody of children to be a primary goal in a divorce. Generally, the courts strongly favor mothers when it comes to awarding custody. However, modern research shows that mothers may want to reconsider their fights for sole custody and think about the advantages of a shared parenting arrangement.

Testing for paternity

If Florida parents are unmarried when a child is born, the father might not be on the birth certificate. It might be necessary to have a DNA test to prove paternity if the father does not voluntarily acknowledge it or if it is unclear.
