Dangers of Social Media During a Lawsuit

Social media seems to run into every aspect of modern lives with the rise in mobile technology and social sites such as Facebook and Instagram. These social media sites are often utilized as fun tools to reconnect with old friends or keep in touch with current ones. However, lurking behind the fun of social media is great potential to damage your case in a divorce, custody or alimony battle. The opposing party may use your statuses, posts and photos as evidence in trial. If you are going through a legal battle stop and think before you post or before you allow someone to tag you in a post, "If a judge saw this post or photograph and nothing else, would this harm, benefit or have a neutral impact on my case?"

Relocation of Children in a Timesharing Agreement

Shared parenting plans may be difficult enough to maintain without one parent considering moving. Some parents may assume that since they are the custodial parent they have the right to move with the children. This is false. Relocating with children, or moving more than 50 miles away from the previous residence for at least 60 days with a minor child who is subject to timesharing with another parent, requires court approval. If you have questions regarding relocating with your children contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our family law attorneys.

What to do if your Ex-Spouse is Not Paying Child Support

As always, our first piece of advice is to contact and retain an attorney that you trust. In Florida child support is not a right of the parent, it is a right of the child; each parent has a legal obligation to provide for their minor child or children. Child support ensures that the child's basic needs, such as food, shelter and safety are met and allows the child to benefit from both parent's success and good fortune. The court will determine child support based on a formula that takes into account the child custody agreement, the net income of the parents, daycare costs and additional specified expenses.

Alimony

Title VI Chapter 61.08 in the Florida Statues details alimony awarded in a divorce, including the types of alimony and the factors the court takes into consideration when awarding alimony. An online copy of this statue can be found here.
