Even for those couples that have a premarital agreement in place, dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership will usually result in conflicting claims to certain assets, and conflicting desires to raise and spend time with the couple’s children.

Family Law Attorney for Parenting Plans and Child Support

Located in Pensacola, Michael J. Griffith, P.A. also provides comprehensive and compassionate legal representation for spouses needing to negotiate parenting plans and enforce or modify child support awards throughout the State of Florida.

Parenting Plans

Following a revision in 2008, Florida law favors shared parenting under most circumstances. It also favors allowing the parents to work out a mutually-acceptable parenting plan, rather than leaving it to the courts to decide your children’s future. With a negotiated or mediated parenting plan, you and your spouse will decide on a mutable arrangement for sharing parental responsibilities, custody, and visitation time that ultimately serves the best interests of your children.

Enforcement and Modification of Child Support

Child support awards are based on a combination of factors, including the spouses’ respective income and expenses, custody rights, and the children’s standard of living during the marriage. If your spouse is not making child support payments, there are a number of different methods for enforcing your right to payment.

If you are seeking to modify child support, you will need to be able to demonstrate that a substantial change in circumstances has affected either (i) your ability to pay or (ii) your children’s needs. Michael J. Griffith can help you build your case for modification, and he will fight for you in court to make sure that you aren’t obligated to pay more than your fair share.
