Man who killed ex-wife at work, previously accused of violence

For many victims of domestic violence, the thought of escaping their dangerous relationship is often complicated by several underlying factors. For many victims, concerns about their abuser finding out about their plans to escape, may prevent them from making changes sooner. Even when a victim is able to successfully remove him or herself from the toxic relationship, there are sometimes still risks that the abuser will continue to create a problem. 

Can you escape an abusive relationship safely?

When you discover that your relationship is abusive and you need to quickly get away, it can be difficult to identify where to begin in Florida. Moving too quickly or without a second thought to the evidence you leave behind could potentially worsen your situation and compromise your safety. Fortunately, there are proactive steps you can take to make preparations to leave without indicting yourself or creating more danger. 

Parenting provisions regarding travel

It's great to take a holiday with your child but if you're a single parent you may need to get special permission from the other parent to travel with him or her. Depending on how you set up your parenting plan and child custody agreement, traveling with your child can be easy or potentially difficult, so it's important to do it right.

How children benefit from joint-custody arrangements

If you live in Florida and are adjusting to a new joint-custody arrangement, you may be struggling with spending less time with your child than you typically do. You may, too, have questions about whether your child will struggle because of shuffling between your home and that of your ex. At Fried and Fried, P.A., we recognize that children whose parents share custody often benefit from such arrangements, and we have helped many clients navigate their way through custody and related family law matters.

Reducing the negative impact of divorce on children

Deciding to end a marriage in Lee County, especially when there are kids is never easy. You might not want to divide the family, but it might be the best solution. You do not want your kids living in a toxic environment with two parents who are at odds with each other. According to Psychology Today, unhealthy marriages are more toxic to children than divorce.
