We all know that marriage is not just a legal arrangement. It’s an establishment of family structure that allows a strong environment to raise children. When a couple gets divorced, it can feel disruptive and weakening for both the parents and the kids. The goal of the Florida courts is to reestablish firm ground, always acting in the best interests of the children – so child support lawyers help to determine a fair amount that meets their needs.
Once the divorce has been resolved, with child custody determined by the judge, you still may need a child-support attorney. It is incredibly common for a parent to neglect to make support payments. In fact, there is a total of $108 billion in back-due child support nationwide (2009, Office of Child Support Enforcement).
The other parent may lose income and be unable to pay; at other times, it is simply an act of irresponsibility or retaliation. If you are owed money by the other parent or need to defend yourself against any support-related accusations, you want a competent and aggressive child support lawyer.
At Fulmer & Fulmer, we are deeply familiar with the bond parents share with their children. In fact, familial connection is embedded in the structure of our father-son law firm. If you are getting a divorce or are experiencing ongoing problems, you need a child support attorney who can resolve the issues while protecting you from unnecessary stress. We typically use mediation to reach an understanding prior to the final court decision.
Major statutes important to the work of child support lawyers are the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (Title VI, Chapter 88) and Arbitration Code (Title XXXIX, Chapter 682). Other central laws are the Dissolution of Marriage, Support, and Time-Sharing (Title VI, Chapter 61); Determination of Parentage (Title XLIII, Chapter 742); and Temporary Custody of Minor Children by Extended Family (Title XLIII Chapter 751) provisions.
