Florida is considered a “no fault” divorce state, which means that it is not necessary to prove that anyone was at fault in the breakdown of the marriage. What does this mean?
At Fournier Law, we are experienced at all phases of divorce litigation, from filing suit to mediation and trial. Our attorneys will walk you through each step of the process, providing you with information so that you understand the law and your options for resolving the case.
Child custody and support is one of the most important — and stressful — aspects of a divorce case where children are involved. There are two types of child custody:
Many factors go into deciding how parents will share custody of their children, with shared physical and legal custody usually awarded unless one parent is unfit. A parenting plan sets out a schedule for shared custody.
Child support is paid from one parent to another, and is determined based on strict child support guidelines. Each party’s net income is reviewed by the court in making child support awards. With decades of experience in Florida family law, the attorneys of Fournier Law understand how child custody and support determinations are made. Contact our office today to learn more about how we can help you in child custody and support cases.
