How do I help my kids when my ex is uninvolved?

After you go through a divorce in Florida, it may be difficult to help your kids work through their painful emotions. The new living arrangements and family structure may be more complicated if your former spouse appears to be emotionally distant from the children and does not honor the visitation schedule. In those cases, your role as an involved parent may become even more vital to your children's recovery process.

What if the other parent doesn't honor our time-sharing schedule?

When you received the Florida court order for your parenting plan, you and your child's other parent became legally bound to honor it. If he or she is not letting you spend your share of the time with your child, unless there is a very good reason, you may be able to have the issue corrected in court.

LGBT couples should obtain legal rights of children

You love your children more than anything. You have enjoyed raising them. You like to watch as they learn new things and explore the world. You can see their personalities developing. They surprise you with new quirks every day. You like to listen as they tell jokes and learn new stories. You are their parent. You and your partner have raised them together.

Developing a shared parenting plan

With all of the emotion that may be associated with your divorce in Davie, it may become easy to start viewing your proceedings from a "win-loss" perspective (as in every concession made in your favor being a win for you, and conversely a loss for your ex-spouse). Yet as many of the clients that we here at The Minaya Offices, PLLC can tell you, when both sides of a divorce fight for only that which is in their best interests, the court can step in and quickly deal a loss to everyone.

How relocation affects child custody

If you have gone through a divorce in Florida and are preparing to move, you may be wondering how the relocation will affect your child custody arrangements. The rules and regulations you must follow will depend greatly on how your child’s other parent feels about the move, but must also meet certain requirements regarding the situation. We at the Minaya Law Offices can help you ensure that you meet all qualifications to legally relocate and can advise you on the best way to proceed.

How are the best interests of a child determined?

When it comes to child custody in Florida, the courts often use the best interests of the child when making decisions. However, it can be difficult to determine what exactly that means. In this case, having a working understanding of how courts go about making these sensitive decisions is crucial for parents to remain involved in the process.

Few grandparents’ rights in Florida

Many across the country associate Florida with their grandparents, as many move to the Sunshine State in retirement, but as far as visitation rights go, grandparents do not have legal standing here. As the Sun Sentinel reports, while some states do offer visitation rights to grandparents, Florida courts consistently have found on the part of parents that forcing visitation with grandparents is a violation of privacy.

Can you make co-parenting a peaceful and positive experience?

If you and your spouse are getting a divorce and have had children together, chances are you have already begun thinking about a custody arrangement. As is the case for many Florida couples, the thought of co-parenting your children with your estranged spouse may seem impossible or daunting at the least. However, with the right approach, you can reach an agreement that is in the best interest of everyone involved.
