What is a loyalty conflict?

Loyalty, particularly to one's parents and family, is usually a valuable quality for a child in Florida to have. However, if you are divorcing your child's other parent and the split is particularly contentious, your child could experience a psychological phenomenon called loyalty conflict. According to Psychiatric Times, some children end up resolving their inner conflict in a way that is unhealthy, both to themselves and their relationships with parents. 

What is a parenting plan?

As a Florida couple who is divorcing with children, you will have more to deal with than childless couples do. It's therefor important for you and your attorney to understand the changes in child custody laws and how it is handled in the state. We at the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., can do just that.

Case presented to Court to define embryos as people or property

Child custody matters in Pomano Beach can in general already be complicated; throw the advancements made in reproductive medicine into the mix and one could have the makings of an entirely new facet of family law. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of cases arguing for the rights of unused embryos harvested for the purpose of in-vitro fertilization. Many of these involve the argument as to whether or not these embryos should be considered children with a right to life or rather as marital property. 

Erratic schedules and child custody

In some instances, determining child custody is very straightforward and both parents have a favorable view of the way in which custody was awarded. In other cases, deciding how to award child custody can be complicated, especially if one parent or both parents have erratic schedules. It is not uncommon for people to work demanding jobs that have unpredictable hours, and this can be true for men as well as women. If you or your child’s other parent are in this position, it is especially important to approach child custody carefully.

What matters can you address in a parenting plan?

How Florida determines “the best interests of the child”

As someone who is involved, or who may soon find yourself involved, in a Florida child custody case, you may begin hearing the term, “best interests of the child,” tossed around frequently, but you may not fully understand what it means or how it may impact your custody case.
