What NOT to do in a divorce and custody dispute

October 15, 2014 by Wendi Hall-Gonzales

Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying the slight change in the weather!  It is not cooling off fast enough for me.  Just a thought on what NOT to do when you are in the middle of a divorce and custody dispute.  Do NOT involve your children.  Do NOT talk to your children about your divorce issues and do NOT disparage your spouse in front of the children!  So many people make the mistake of involving the children in their divorce to try and get the children to take sides in the divorce.  Remember your children know that they are  half you and half your spouse, and trying to gain their sympathy or involving them in adult issues, such as an affair by one party, is extremely hurtful and damaging to the children in any custody dispute.  Moreover, if the Judge hears that this behavior is going on, you will be admonished by the Judge and your case will be severely compromised.  Leave your children OUT of the divorce process and you will find your children will adjust to the divorce in a healthy way.  If you would like to discuss divorce, custody, or another family law matter in more detail, please call me for a free consultation anytime.

 

Holiday Time-Sharing

November 27, 2013 by Wendi Hall-Gonzales

The holidays are fast approaching.  Take some stress out of this year’s festivities by getting a head-start on your time sharing schedule.  Parents should consider the best interest of their minor children when discussing schedules.  If you have reached an agreement, it should address the holiday schedule in the parenting plan.  Parents should follow this schedule to prevent unpleasantness during the holidays.  If a change is needed, the parties should discuss well in advance to make sure everyone is agreeable.  If an agreement has not been reached, parents should consider family traditions, age of the children and whether it is possible for the parents to split the holiday equally.  The Florida Supreme Court approved Parenting Plan [form 12.995(a)] supplies a standard guideline to assist families in agreeing on a schedule.  With a little communication, compromise and consideration, children can enjoy their holidays with both parents.

Payment of Attorney’s Fees

November 15, 2013 by Wendi Hall-Gonzales

In some instances, Florida Family Law Courts can order one party to pay a portion or all of the other party’s reasonable attorney’s fees. The Court considers the earnings of the parties and the resources that each has available to pay attorney’s fees. The Court must make a decision as to whether the requesting party has need and the other party has the ability to pay the attorney’s fees. If the Court decides there is need and ability to pay, they are then able to order the reasonable attorney’s fees paid to the requesting party. Courts may also award attorney’s fees in instances where one party has caused unnecessary delay and litigation.

For more information see Florida Statute 61.16.
