Child Custody

When it comes to child custody, it’s important to always focus on the child or children’s best interests during this discussion. Of course, both parents want to earn sole parental responsibility; however, many factors are considered before this is granted in Florida court according to child custody laws. The court wants a child to maintain a close relationship with both parents, but this can be challenging. Some factors that affect child custody issues include:

  • The physical/mental health of each parent
  • The wishes of the child (if they’re old enough)
  • The need for a stable home
  • The location of the parent’s home in regards to their school (if applicable)
  • The age/sex of the child
  • Support among extended family members
  • The relationship of the child with members of the households where they live now
  • Any abuse that may have occurred
  • Any domestic violence that may have occurred
  • Evidence of a drug or alcohol problem

If you and the child’s other parent are unable to reach a mutually acceptable agreement regarding how responsibilities will be shared, a judge may step in and make those decisions. They will consider which parent is more likely to allow the child to have frequent contact with the other parent, which has the most stable home, which can provide necessary items to the child, the job security of each parent, the bond each parent has with the child, etc.

Spousal Support

In terms of a divorce, many individuals will be curious whether or not they will have to pay alimony and the other, how much they will receive. Charles Erickson, a spousal support attorney in Florida, has years of experience representing clients during divorce. He understands this complex process. He can work directly with a couple to get the best possible outcome for their situation so that they can begin their new lives. Spousal support is awarded during divorce proceedings and is paid by one spouse to the other. The receiving spouse has neither the assets or sufficient income in order to support themselves after the dissolution of the marriage. The spousal support awarded will vary according to different factors including the length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage, the age, health, and finances of the spouse, their ability to earn a decent living and the ability of the payer to support themselves.

Child Support

Another family law factor is child support. When two parents decide to end a relationship, whether a breakup or a divorce in Florida, that doesn’t end their responsibility to care and support their child or children. With the help of a Naples, Florida child support attorney such as Charles Erickson; important questions can be answered and addressed so that a reasonable schedule is established. Child support is generally calculated by the number of children, the incomes of both parents and the costs of the child’s basic needs, schooling, and insurance. These factors will determine the amount paid. This amount can change with a child support modification in the future if parenting time changes, incomes change, or other factors.
