What is bird's nest co-parenting?

There are many different ways to co-parent. The Florida family court will usually work with you to find what works best for you and your situation and allow you to do it how you want as long as it will not harm your children. One option you may not have considered before is called bird's nest co-parenting, which according to Psychology Today, is where you keep the family home and the children live there full time while you and the other parent take turns living there.

How does DNA testing work?

Establishing paternity is important if you want to have parental rights to your child in Florida. Having the court name you as the legal father of a child means you have rights to visitation and the ability to play a role in the child's life and make decisions regarding him or her. The main way that the courts do this is through a DNA test. These tests are rather simple to do and allow the father to be determined with up to 99 percent accuracy. According to Health-Link, the first step in any test is doing a swab to collect the DNA.

The prevalence of head injuries in victims of domestic violence

When two people are involved in a romantic relationship, tensions can run high at times. Often, people do or say things in a moment of passion that they regret later on. In some circumstances, people may become violent and endanger the life of their partner. What is disconcerting, is that this problem is more widespread in Florida than many people realize. Often, victims are left to cope with their demons in silence as they try to avoid putting their life in danger by confessing the abuse to someone. 

Working through a difficult custody dispute

One of the most difficult parts of divorce for many Florida families often has to do with the impact made on children. Often, couples disagree on the best interest of their children and are both prone to fight for outcomes that are most convenient and beneficial for their own needs. The result is usually disagreements that require court intervention to solve, but in serious cases, high-conflict custody disputes create ongoing contention and emotional turmoil for everyone involved. 

How can I suggest a prenuptial agreement?

If you are getting married in Florida, there are probably a lot of things you have to handle. From venues to food, weddings take a lot of planning. However, there is something else you should consider before tying the knot. That is drawing up a prenuptial agreement. This is especially important if you have a lot of assets, own a business or have children from another relationship. The only issue is that asking for a prenup can often cause waves in a relationship.
