5 tips for saving on back-to-school shopping

While not quite over yet, the telltale signs of summer's end are starting to make their appearances. Department stores are replacing patio furniture with pencils, pens and notebooks. The tourist season is winding down in Southern Florida. Schools have started sending out back-to-school notices and the all-important list of school supplies children will need this year.

How do Florida courts determine fair child support?

The costs of raising a child always seem to be in flux. They grow out of every pair of pants they own over the mere span of a few months. They need fifty dollars for a field trip and another fifty for school supplies. They accidentally run over the family's cell phone data and rack up hundreds of dollars in texts.

What happens if a parent is unable to pay child support?

Some divorce orders require one parent to pay child support. This money allows the child or teen to have a lifestyle and opportunities that would be possible if their parents had remained together. Although child support is important, the parent doesn’t always pay properly.

Divorce considerations for children with special needs

Parents of children with mental or physical disabilities know how proper care makes a difference in their lives. Patient teaching, therapy and careful management of the environment might help your child continue to learn and grow at their own pace.

When child support enforcement issues come up in Florida

Among the family law issues that can come up after a divorce are enforcement issues. For example, allegations may arise that one of the parties to the divorce has failed to make payments required under a court order. This could include accusations of failing to make child support payments.  

Learning how to successfully obtain any child support owed

Most spouses are embroiled in nasty divorce cases once relations have worsened beyond pair. In such situations, partners engage in several court battles with the sole purpose of retaining child custody. The child's wellbeing is the most important factor to consider, despite the constant bickering witnessed by feuding spouses. Once the dust has settled, and child custody has been awarded, parents need to develop a comprehensive plan that outlines child support mechanisms. In Florida, the law clearly stipulates that both parents need to be involved in the child support modification process to promote their wellbeing.
