There are four types of child custody: legal custody, physical custody, sole custody and joint custody. Legal custody gives a parent the sole right to make all decisions about the child. What schools the child attends, who provides healthcare to the child and decisions on spiritual training are in the hands of the parent who has legal custody. Frequently, the courts grant joint legal custody so that both parents share the responsibilities and do not lose their legal rights. In a contested divorce this could be an area of battle as well as other custody and visitation issues. Physical custody establishes with whom the child will reside. If physical custody is not shared, the court will impose a visitation schedule for the other parent. Sole custody refers to both legal and physical custody. While courts aren’t reluctant to grant sole physical custody, it is becoming rare for a judge to grant sole legal custody. Custody issues are complex. Tampa divorce attorneys are your best advisors for issues related to children time share, custody and visitation.
Visitation is the time given by the court to the parent without physical custody to spend time with a child. There are circumstances where there is a request for modification of visitation rights, i.e. A new job moves a parent away; the parent wants a different schedule, perhaps block time instead of weekends and perhaps an evening or two. If the parties cannot agree, the case will go to Family court. Seek the advice of a Tampa divorce attorney on this issue. Visitation can be supervised or unsupervised as mandated by the court. Visitation privileges can be modified in the future most commonly facilitated by an attorney.
In a non-contested divorce, the parties have agreed to alimony terms. The amount and the payment terms decided, Rehabilitative alimony is a lump sum or monthly payment to allow the spouse time to reenter the job market. Ordinary alimony is to cover the ex-partner’s living expenses. It is a lump sum payment or a monthly payment that is ongoing unless the spouse marries. In a contested divorce, alimony is an issue fraught with acrimony. Though Florida has a formula for establishing alimony payments, it is loosely followed by the court. Adultery can also be a factor in alimony. Legal representation is a must regarding alimony.
Tampa Child support is a sum of money that is paid to the spouse who has physical custody. It is for the child’s clothing, food, schooling and other necessary things. Generally, legal responsibility for child care ends when the child reaches age 18. Sometimes one spouse may ask for a change in child support. The paying spouse may have lost a job, is working at a lower paying job or became disabled. He or she may ask that the child support be lowered as the original amount is no longer affordable. The spouse with physical custody may ask that the amount be modified upward due to unforeseen needs of the child. This need can include things such as tutoring for a learning disabled child, uncovered medical expenses and other things. Unfortunately, people do get emotional about money. It is wise to seek advice, and if needed, representation from a Tampa divorce attorney if the issue arises.
