Child Support – Child Support , Enforcement Orders, Retroactive Child Support
If you are a parent and divorcing, you will be required by the courts to utilize a parenting plan which serves to establish a timesharing schedule. Depending on your situation, a long distance parenting plan may be needed. Although Florida courts generally presumes 50/50 timesharing, there are many cases when equal time is not possible. There may be a situation where the courts will have determine if it is in the best interest of the child/children. Child support is determined in part by the timesharing schedule between parents and is calculated according to guidelines set forth by Florida Law. Some child support cases are considered Title IV-D cases and are enforced by the Florida Department of Revenue who can enforce orders in Florida, or any other state. If your support order originated in Florida and the obligor is out of state, the child support order must be registered in the state in which enforcement is sought. Although the Department of Revenue can represent parents in Title IV-D child support cases, there are times when an oblige may need to hire a family law attorney, especially in cases where child support orders are being enforced, based on incorrect information.
Family law attorney Nilo J. Sanchez can represent you in child custody matters such as determining parental responsibility and timesharing, modifications of child custody, enforcement of child custody orders and other matters pertaining to the children. In Florida, it is generally presumed that a 50/50 timeshare schedule is in the best interest of the children. The Florida Statutes make no such presumption of 50/50 timesharing. Given this, parents should do their best to set aside their differences and work together to establish a parenting plan and encourage a loving, healthy relationship with the other parent. We realize however, that it isn’t always possible for parents to do so. In high conflict child custody cases, cases where parental alienation or domestic violence is present, it will be highly beneficial to hire a family law attorney who approaches children’s matters aggressively but with calm, focused and sound legal counsel.
