In addition to dealing with property division, child custody, visitation rights and other decisions when going through a divorce, Florida parents must also help their children directly. Each child will have a unique reaction to and understanding of a parents’ divorce. Tending to the best interests of the child can be done better when parents keep the emotional needs and maturity levels of different kids in mind.
In Florida, there are laws designed to keep children safe. For example, child custody rights may be lost if a parent shows signs of abusing or neglecting their children, even if the instance of abuse or neglect is not considered “extreme”.
