Recent changes in Florida family law mean that divorce lawyers and their clients need to get used to new terminology on the range of legal and practical issues formerly known as child custody and visitation. Parenting plan and time-sharing are the new terms for the decisions that divorcing parents need to make about primary residence, legal custody and the noncustodial parent’s right to regular access to the children.
The use of standard guidelines to determine the amount of child support payments in Florida divorce and paternity cases has gone far to promote certainty and reduce disagreements between parents on child support issues. It’s usually fairly simple to identify the amount of a noncustodial parent’s basic child support payment.
The family law practice at the law firm of Moraitis & Raimondi, LLP, focuses on finding cost-effective solutions to the complex problems that can arise in divorce cases. While we work with people in all kinds of circumstances, our experience is especially well suited to the needs of clients who anticipate special complications in their divorce, such as difficult asset division problems or high-conflict timesharing disputes between parents.
When a married couple has amassed significant property and assets throughout their years together, the process of dividing property in the event of a divorce can quickly become highly complex. If you are involved in a high net worth divorce, or if you are contemplating divorce, you should consult with an attorney who has an advanced understanding of such complexities.
