Child support in Florida is designed to help give the child the most financially stable home possible. It is important for the child to receive the support that they require in order to maintain a safe and consistent residence. Parents rely heavily on the court system to help them and their children transition to this new part of their lives without a large change in lifestyle.
Stone and Capobianco can help with a wide variety of child support issues, such as: calculating child support based on financial and custody issues, changing current child support amounts based on changing financial conditions for one or both of the parents, or helping with the enforcement of current child support payments.
If you need help with a child support case, we are here to help with a decision in the child’s best interests. The children’s best interests are what drive all decisions made in the family courts in Florida.
The lawyers of Stone and Capobianco are able to help in cases that fall into the following categories:
o Establishment of Support
o Establishment of Paternity and Support
o Enforcement of Child Support Obligations
o Modification of Child Support Obligations
Now referred to by Florida family courts as timesharing, child custody can be devastating to children and parents, if handled improperly. The questions surrounding custody of children are often the most controversial facets of a divorce. It is imperative that your family experience the most comfortable transition possible. Due to the sensitivity of these issues, Florida family courts now refer to timesharing instead of child custody, and parenting plans instead of visitation.
Parents must take responsibility for the care of their children, whether they are together or apart. Children should be able to maintain a stable relationship with both mother and father, even in tumultuous times. While it may be difficult to handle, questions about where a child will live and how they will have access to parents who are no longer together can be emotionally and financially devastating to a family. In the vast majority of situations, it is preferred that both parents are actively involved in the life of their child. At Stone and Capobianco, we weigh all of the factors that go into determining parental responsibility and timesharing.
