You will find nothing harder on ex-partners and children than a contested divorce where emotions often lead to expensive and drawn out legal proceedings.

Child support, visitation, and child time share are options available to you to protect your rights as a caring parent. Time share and visitation rights are determined by the courts with the consideration of what is in the best interest of the child or children along with the consideration of the parents’ ability to provide a healthy and loving environment in which to live. In many states, a child at the age of 13 can choose which parent he/she wishes to live with as long as there are no extraordinary reasons to do otherwise.
The child or children time share issue, as well as visitation is determined by using both guidelines and parental agreements approved by the courts. Time share, as well as visitations, can extend outside of the parents themselves to include grandparents or even limit whether or not visitations are with or without supervision.
Brandon child support attorneys can help your payments come in a timely manner.
More than likely, the courts will mandate that child support be paid by one parent to the other. The decision of the court is based on income and a preset formula. Most of the time a parent wants to provide for their child with support that can help pay for their food, clothing and things like school supplies. Health insurance, medical costs and housing needs are also taken into consideration by the court. We will assist you on getting, or giving the correct amount of child support to make sure your child is adequately taken care of, without the situation becoming unfair to you. Keep in mind also, that most support is stopped when the child reaches the age of 18.
Child support modification lawyers in Brandon help you through hard times.
Sometimes your present amount of child support needs to be modified. Having an attorney will give you more leverage in the court system, as well as could be advantageous to you as lawyers know the law inside and out. Child support is based on income and time share of the children and should the income or period of time spent with a parent change due to a job loss, decrease of income, or even an increase in income, the paying parent can ask the court for a modification of child support.
Florida law authorizes the court to modify payments when the financial capability of either party changes, or when the child reaches age 18. If the child is still in school, the age can be 19. Child support modification is a frequent reason why people often call our Brandon area child support modification lawyers.
Florida Statutes list three grounds for modification of child support: (1) when modification is found necessary by the court and is in the best interest of the child; (2) when the child reaches the age of 18; and (3) when there is a substantial change in the circumstances of the parties. Proof must be provided to show the change is significant, material, involuntary and permanent.
A guideline change must result in a change of either 15% or $50, whichever is greater. Either a parent’s income, or the child’s needs would qualify as a substantial change. Once the court finds that there has been a substantial change, then the court must consider all of the statutory factors in recalculating the child support obligation.
Spousal support or alimony that has been predetermined by the judge can be increased or decreased if there is a change in income or circumstance. This is called a modification. Under Florida law, if these changes occur, then the spouse may request a modification. Increased income alone may not be enough for a modification request. In order to modify the payments, a party must file a supplemental petition with the court and serve the other side.
The party who is seeking the modification must show the court that there has been (1) a substantial change in the circumstances; (2) that the change was not contemplated by the parties at the time of the final judgment of dissolution; and (3) the change is sufficient, material, involuntary, and permanent in nature. You can seek a modification for spousal support if the paying ex-spouse can prove the other party is involved in a supportive relationship in which their expenses are being paid.
Usually, in an uncontested or simple divorce, if a spouse asks for and receives alimony, a lengthy and expensive legal process is bypassed. In a contested divorce the process can escalate both emotions and time. A request for financial records can be expected with full disclosure. Alimony is often a single, lump sum payment or payment by month to permit the spouse time to reenter the job market. Ordinary alimony would be to cover the ex-partners bills. This payment, or payments can be set for a duration of time until the spouse is either set up in a job, or remarried. Although Florida provides a formula for establishing alimony, these matters and arrangements are better left to your Brandon area divorce attorney so that matters are settled in a timely and satisfying manner.
A violence injunction is useful in keeping a partner safe and away from another partner who has displayed actions of violence. Receiving a violence injunction forces the violent partner to move out of a shared residence and legally prohibits the violent partner from being within 500 feet of the other for a set period of time.
