Child Support Laws

Child support is calculated by a mathematical formula. If one parent is granted custody of the child, then typically the other parent will have child support payments. Determining child support can be complex, especially if one parent is self-employed or both parents are wage earners. Because this process is complex, it is important you work with a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable of the law.

Child Custody Disputes

In Child Custody disputes, the court will typically establish a parenting plan that provides for time-sharing that will be in the child’s best interest. This will provide the child with shared parenting so that both parents will be responsible for the major decisions. In determining the best interest of a child, there is no presumption for or against the father or the mother.

The court should take all relevant and appropriate information into account in order to make a fair and reasonable determination of how the child’s best interest will be served based upon the current circumstances.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are contracts signed before a couple gets married to determine how assets or debts will be split up in the event of a divorce.

Prenups have become much more common and it is important to understand how seriously these contracts are viewed by the courts in Florida. In the past, courts would often scrutinize prenuptial agreements with suspicion, primarily because the document favored the spouse with higher wealth and appeared to promote a frivolous attitude towards divorce.

Now that divorces and, in turn, remarriage have become more socially acceptable in addition to the rise in overall equality between men and women, the courts and legislatures are much more willing to uphold premarital agreements. That said, a prenup that is judged unfair or otherwise fails to meet state requirements will still be set aside.

Because of this, it is imperative that the negotiations and construction of your arrangements are done in a clear manner.  The implications of the contract should be obvious to both parties, as well as legally sound. The family law attorneys at the Law Office of J.J. Talbott P.A. are experienced in these matters and are happy to help guide you through the drafting of your prenuptial agreement.
