Florida case highlights issues of paternity, custodial interference for unmarried couples, P.2

In our previous post, we looked briefly at the story of a Venezuelan couple involved in a custodial interference case in Florida. As we noted, the couple was never married and so, under Florida law, there is no presumption of paternity. For the father, this is why he was charged with the offense.

Child custody disputes, as readers are aware, can be particularly contentious and couples who split up can end up need to be prepared to advocate for their rights and the best interests of their child. The possibility of disputes arise does not end after a parenting plan is established, either, but continues until the children become adults.

Work with experienced advocate to address problems with unlicensed contractors, P.2

In our previous post, we began looking at the issue of unlicensed contractors, their increasing use here in Florida, and the issues for consumers who run into problems with them in the course of a job.

Construction is an industry where there are a great many variables at play, and it common for problems to arise. Quality contractors not only know how to prepare properly for a job, including obtaining the proper licensure for the job, but also how to effectively address issues as they come up so that the consumer is satisfied and they meet their contractual obligations. As a recent article points out, though, problems can arise for consumers when they work with unlicensed contractors, particularly when they don’t know their rights.

Can you terminate a child support order if you are not the father?

How do Florida courts divide assets in divorce?

We have previous looked on this blog at the issue of property division in divorce.

How can an experienced attorney advocate for a parent in the child custody process?

Previously, we looked briefly at the factors Florida courts consider when making child custody determinations. As we noted, courts may ultimately take into account any factor impacting the best interests of the child, which is really the governing factor.

How could water damage be only 'partially' covered by insurance?

Insurance is one of those things that is great... in theory. It helps you pay for expenses that would cause you to take a serious financial hit or might be unable to cover on your own. Let's face it, your paycheck probably doesn't cover a new roof - even if it does, you've got other bills to pay.
