Developing an effective parenting plan for you and your children

If you and your spouse are in the process of divorcing in Florida, you may have already begun considering how you will arrange co-parenting for the best interest of your children. An effective way to clarify these types of arrangements is for you and your ex to have a parenting plan that clearly defines boundaries. At Fried and Fried, P.A. we are familar with the unique challenges of co-parenting following a divorce. 

Divorce and allegations of domestic violence

Most married couples realize that divorce can be difficult for a plethora of reasons. Sometimes, emotions run high over the way that marital property is split between a couple, while others may be worried or upset about custody decisions, visitation rights, child support, and many other issues. However, we know that victims of domestic violence and those who have been accused of this offense may have an even harder time as they end their marriage.

Child support and retirement

There are many different angles that our law firm considers with regard to child support, such as the impact that losing a job can have on custodial and non-custodial parents or the penalties for failing to pay child support. However, there are unique considerations that can also play a major role in child support orders, such as retirement. If you plan on retiring in the near future, or your child's other parent has recently retired, you may want to think about the potential impact this could have on your child support order. We know that some people struggle with child support issues and just how important it is to work through them carefully.

Co-parenting requires the adults to work together

If you and your ex have young children, you have a long road ahead since you have to raise your children and deal with your ex. A co-parenting model is one of the possible ways that you can choose to raise your children, but this requires you to have an open line of communication with your ex.

Family law and social media challenges

In the digital age, there are a number of new problems that some married couples have to deal with as they work through the process of divorce or even after their divorce has been finalized. With social media, various difficulties may arise, whether a spouse shares potentially damaging information on a social networking site or even carries out an affair as a result of an online profile. Moreover, our firm knows that you should also be careful about sharing certain types of information online, especially if you are dealing with family law matters.
