Under the generally accepted rules in Florida, parents are encouraged to develop co-parenting plans in the event they are going through a divorce or when they are unmarried. In nearly all cases, child support and custody issues that develop will almost always require the services of a Sarasota child custody attorney in order to reach a resolution.
Hiring a Charlotte child support attorney
Parents always want what is best for their children and in some cases, they can reach an agreement without court or attorney intervention. However, this is not always the case and when parents cannot agree on where a child should live, how often the non-custodial parent should be able to visit or other parenting issues, the Law Office of Eric A. Reyes often is called in to assist parents.
In Florida, child support payments are based on a specific formula that is laid out under Florida law and is based on a number of factors including the income of each parent, how many children the parent may be responsible for supporting and how much time each parent has the child in their physical custody.
When parents default on support payments
Unfortunately, it is all too common for a parent who is ordered to pay support to skip payments, make late payments or simply refuse to make payments. When any of these situations arise, chances are you will need to hire a Manatee child support lawyer to file a grievance with the court. Occasionally, it may be necessary to ask for child support modifications which may also require the assistance of an attorney.
Parenting plans, custody agreements and child support agreements should be taken seriously by both parents. Children should be given the opportunity to visit with their non-custodial parents and both parents should be responsible for the physical and emotional well-being of their children. If parents are in a dispute over custody or support issues, contact Attorney Eric Reyes, P.A. for help. We will work with you and take whatever legal steps are necessary to ensure the best interests of your child are addressed in a manner that works for both parents and for the children.
