Child Custody/Child Support

There are two types of child custody that the law recognizes: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to the actual residence of the child, whereas legal custody refers to who can make major decisions regarding a child’s upbringing. Although there are two primary categories of custody, there are several different kinds of custodial arrangements that can be made depending on family’s particular circumstances. For instance, both parents can share legal custody while one maintains primary physical custody and the other has visitation rights, or one parent can have sole legal and physical custody.

In addition to a family’s custodial agreement, there are also legal obligations that surround the financial support of biological and adopted children. Here in Florida, child support is mandatory by law, and therefore, unavoidable in all cases. So, for parents not living together as one family unit, establishing a child support plan is not only important, it’s imminent. However, child support litigation is a delicate, and often times, contentious topic among separated parents. As an unfortunate result, most child support decisions and disagreements wind up in front of a judge, especially in the case of divorce and prenatal breakups.
