Child Custody Archives

Do you need a parenting coordinator?

Child custody disputes are uniquely stressful affairs. If parents agree on what is best for their children, then child custody matters may proceed in a relatively straightforward manner. However, if parents are compelled to dispute where their children should live, how parenting time should be allocated and how their children should be raised, the process can become quite emotionally and physically draining.

What children really think about their parents' divorces

Numerous studies have confirmed in recent years that when parents opt to divorce, they often do their children more good than harm in the long-run. This conclusion is born out of the fact that parents often provide happier, healthier and more stable homes for their children when they are not constantly fighting or navigating the tensions of an unhappy and unhealthy marriage.

Florida appellate court hears case in fight over son's ashes

A panel of appellate judges in the Florida 4th District Court of Appeal heard oral argument Tuesday in a difficult issue. Many Florida residents may have followed the high-profile DUI manslaughter trial of John Goodman, an issue that has not been fully resolved in criminal court. The victim of the 2010 car accident in that case was a 23-year-old Florida man. His parents chose to have the young man cremated, and the former couple (who divorced in 2007) is battling over the man’s cremated remains.

In a divorce with kids in Florida, who claims the kids on taxes?

As the door is leaning toward its close on the income tax filing season, it may be beneficial to discuss how the dependency exemption on income tax forms may apply when parents with minor children divorce. In general, child custody issues are a matter of Florida law for people in the Sunshine State. But, the federal dependency exemption is governed under federal law.

Social media content could impact child custody proceedings

Many adults have turned to the world of social media to communicate and stay connected with friends. As the use of Facebook, Twitter and similar digital platforms become integrated into daily life, some people might not think too much about the content that they share. However, one man discovered just how impactful a Facebook post written out of frustration can be.

Federal legislation addresses international custody disputes

For many parents, settling child custody issues can be an incredibly complex matter. Not only do parents have to sort through the emotions of caring for their children, but they also must address the laws relevant to their cases.

Will signing Hague Convention really change anything for Japan?

One of the great things about Tampa is its diversity, and it is not at all uncommon for a local Tampa man or woman to be in a relationship with someone with a different citizenship. When the marriages don't work out, however, there are not only questions about how to divide parenting time, but also what kinds of international travel will be allowed. Since the foreign-born parent could potentially take the child and return to his or her home country, there needs to be very well-defined rules about travel.

Florida child custody dispute boils down to place of residence

Tribal law in the United States is often considered to be one of the most complex legal topics. Native American reservations are considered sovereign nations, so any legal dealings between tribal governments and the federal, state or local government can be incredibly complex. This was the case for a Florida man trying to obtain a fair child custody hearing.

Usher's child custody saga continues

Determining child custody can be one of the most difficult issues for parents to settle when they split up. When parents are locked in a dispute over custody, it's typically the case that they both care about their kids and want to do what's best, but they cannot come to terms with each other.
