How do you design a visitation schedule for young children?

Establishing a good visitation schedule can often be difficult, but you may encounter more challenges if your children are very young. As a Florida mom, you likely have many questions about the kind of visitation arrangement you should set up for your young children.

Should you get a post-nup if you aren't divorcing?

As a couple in Florida who's considering getting a divorce, you may also be looking into a post-nuptial agreement. Fortunately for you, getting a post-nuptial agreement doesn't set your divorce in stone. In fact, it can be a way to help your marriage mend, if that's the route you want to take.

How relocation will affect your child custody

While most people in Florida would prefer post-marital arrangements to be completed once the judge declares them legally divorced, things can become more complicated when there are children involved. Child custody plans may be sufficient at the time of divorce, but can quickly become out-dated and incapable of handling your family's changing needs. This is especially true if jobs, relationships or other factors cause you to move away from your ex-spouse. We at The Law Office of Philip J. Schipani can help you determine how this move will affect your child custody plan and what you can do about it.

Tips for preventing international child abduction amid divorce

If you have ever gone through a divorce, you probably know that it is rarely an easy process, but the transition into life on your own may prove far more difficult if you and your spouse were in an international relationship. International family law matters are difficult for many reasons, and this is due at least in part to the fact that there are often questions about what governing body has jurisdiction over such matters.

Mandatory mediation in Florida divorce cases

When couples enter the family law system in Florida, they have no choice but to agree to mediation. The Law Office of Philip J. Schipani understands mediation can be something you are not familiar with, so you may need guidance. The general idea here is to talk through your issues and come to an agreement in order to minimize the time you spend in court.
