When Florida residents are going through situations in which they will face legal proceedings, they may want to understand their options. This may be particularly true for parties who are facing child custody & support negotiations. Though there are many aspects of the processes that are dictated by law, individuals may still have certain options for how support could be handled.
Disputes over child custody, child support and visitation are probably understood by most people in Florida only in the context of divorce. That might have been true 20 years ago, but not today. Children are born out of wedlock all the time. And regardless of whether parents are married or not, the law makes the presumption that both parents of a child have equal obligations to provide for the child's best interest.
