A child custody attorney can assist grandparents who seek custody

For some Florida families, a child custody fight does not feature the usual parties of a mother and father. There are cases in which grandparents seek custody of their grandchildren. These are often highly emotional cases, and can be difficult for everyone involved. Parents have a constitutional right to care for their children, and mounting a case to have those rights limited or terminated is a challenge. Grandparents who want to be successful in court will need the services of a good child custody attorney.

Florida readers to follow Huma Abedin child custody case

Many readers are familiar with the humiliation that has faced top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Long considered one of Clinton's closest advisers and a personal friend, Abedin has largely chosen to remain outside of the spotlight during her political career. She has been thwarted in those efforts, however, by her husband's ongoing poor choices in regard to sexual behavior. Many in Florida are aware that Anthony Weiner, once a congressman, is now facing federal prison time for his involvement in sending sexual text messages to a teenage girl.

Research shows fathers should get overnight visits with infants

If you and your wife have or will have a baby together and you are considering a divorce, it should not be an accepted fact that the parenting plan limits your visits to two or three hours during the day. In fact, as the baby’s father, it is just as important for you to have overnight visits as it is for the mother.

Child custody attorney could assist in same-sex parent cases

For many same-sex couples in Florida and across the nation, the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage has led to a great many improvements in their lives. The ability to marry is a right that has been a long time coming, and families across the nation have taken advantage of that right to begin building their families. Even so, same-sex couples still face challenges when it comes to parental rights, and some are fighting back by taking their cases through the court system with the help of a child custody attorney.

Prenuptial agreements may help plan for divorce in Florida

Many Florida residents may find planning for the possibility of divorce useful. It is not unrealistic to consider that a marriage will not last forever, as numerous couples choose to end their relationships every day. In fact, planning tools, such as prenuptial agreements, can help interested parties address property division and other areas long before the need arises. 

Shared parenting can work for many Florida families

When contemplating divorce, many parents cannot bear the thought of losing access to their children. The end of a marriage does necessitate a change in parenting schedules, but those changes do not have to be negative. There is a wide body of research that supports the notion that shared child custody is a great structure for families, and Florida spouses are encouraged to give this approach careful consideration.
