What can Florida courts do to prevent relocation violations?

For some Florida parents, child custody is a complex situation that is rife with dispute. Whereas some parents can be amicable or outright friendly regarding custody and visitation rights, some cases are difficult with concerns about a parenting plan violation with one parent a feared risk of relocation without permission.

The law has certain recourse when there is a chance of removal from the state or country with an international abduction. Understanding these laws is important for both parents.

What circumstances may necessitate child support extension?

For many single parents, child support is a necessity for supporting their children and ensuring that they can provide for their needs. Child support lessens the burden that parents must shoulder, and it holds both parents—even a noncustodial parent—accountable for the expenses of raising kids. According to the Florida Department of Revenue, a parent may receive support until the child in question is 18.

Florida law indicates that support should cease at this point, unless special circumstances apply and both parties agree. You may be wondering: What could necessitate an extension of child support payments beyond the age of 18? The following three circumstances may qualify.

Law enforcement officer arrested for domestic assault of wife

For those in Orlando and across Florida who are confronted with allegations of domestic assault, the potential problems they face are numerous. Not only might they need to deal with serious legal penalties including fines, jail time and more, they might also have issues in the community. This is especially true for people who are in a prominent job where they are expected to comport themselves in a certain way. After an arrest amid assertions of domestic assault and similar charges, having legal assistance is one of the most important steps to take.

Man arrested on allegations of fleeing and assault on an officer

In Orlando and across Florida, traffic stops by law enforcement happen every day.

Most of these are routine with the driver complying with the officer and no other issues coming up and causing more problems than the initial reason for the stop. In some cases, though, drivers might be accused of trying to elude or resist the officer. In these sorts of cases, it is important to remember that when there is an arrest, it is critical to have legal assistance to prepare for a criminal defense.

Can delinquent payments lead to professional license suspension?

When a Florida parent who is obligated by law to pay child support but does not pay what is owed, ithere may be penalties assessed on account of these delinquent payments. One of the penalties that can occur is if the supporting parent has a professional license, as the failure to pay leads to a suspension. This cannot happen until the parent who is receiving child support has tried every other avenue to get the required payments.

When there are delinquent payments, the receiving parent must tell the supporting parent that there are 30 days to pay what is owed or to come to an agreement to deal with the situation. If the payment is not made and there is no agreement, the professional license or certificate can be denied upon a request for renewal, or the license can be suspended.

Can a written agreement help with child support delinquency?

It is common for Florida parents to have a child support dispute in which the supporting parent does not make the payments he or she is required to. This can involve nothing being paid or it can be a situation where the amount that is ordered is not paid in full. Of course, this can lead to legal problems for the supporting parent.

With that can come various penalties including the loss of a driver license until the support is paid. While this can be problematic, there are alternatives to alleviate the situation. One way that the supporting parent can get back on stronger ground is with a written agreement. With a written agreement, the parent will sign it promising that the payments will be made. The promise is made with the Child Support Program in the state. The parent will agree to pay the amount that is owed each month. These are beneficial if the parent is behind on what is owed and cannot pay it immediately and in full.

Drug issues can plague anyone regardless of their position in society, and they can be arrested for it. This is true for people who have jobs, are prominent in the community, or are well-known for various athletic exploits.

When there are allegations of drug possession and other charges that often accompany it, having legal help is one of the most important factors in achieving a positive outcome. Since people who are confronted with drug charges might also be accused of other crimes that worsen the situation, it is critical to contact a qualified drug defense attorney as soon as possible.

In Florida, the penalties for DUI may include an IID

The state of Florida is serious about keeping drunk drivers off the road, and motorists who receive a DUI conviction face stiff penalties.

Based on the circumstances of your arrest, the court might order the installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. It may be the only way you can get back behind the wheel.

Court decision can grant visitation rights to certain fathers

Child custody in Florida can be a contentious issue that often leaves fathers limited to visitation rights and rarely receiving custody of a child. Similarly, there are other laws that can be problematic for fathers when they are seeking to see their child.

For biological fathers, a longstanding state law that deprived them of their rights in the interests of "legitimacy" was struck down. The rule had been in place for decades before this decision.

An experienced Florida attorney can help with child relocation

Florida parents who share a child must adhere to the child custody and visitation rights that are ordered in the settlement.

Whether there is a custody dispute, a relatively amicable parting of the ways or something in between, an issue that frequently arises is if the custodial parent decides to relocate and move away with the child. The noncustodial parent might have a problem with this. From either perspective, relocation can be a contentious situation and requires legal help to navigate effectively.
