Florida is the sunshine state. Even though there are other states who get significantly more sunshine, Florida is known for its hot summer days and even hotter nights. The weather lures people from all over the nation to retire or just move. With water all around the panhandle, you can choose which coast is more fit. The almost Caribbean-like southern tip of Florida allures people with dreams of kayaking, fishing, and paddleboarding. Even if you end up in the middle of the state, you get to venture to Disney World and all the surrounding parks. Florida’s tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry that is growing. You would think for such a happy state that has so much to do more people would be happy, but they aren’t.

Florida is one of the most stressed states in the nation. This stress is leaking into marriages and causing some serious relationship disruption. Fort Lauderdale does not carry the highest rate of divorce in Florida, but it’s not the lowest either. At 14%, Fort Lauderdale sits comfortably in the lower middle beating cities like South Pasadena or Orange City which both boast a 20+% of the divorce rate. Even though there is no real reason as to why people get divorced, our family law lawyer at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale knows that it is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. We know it is stressful because divorce isn’t just about breaking up a relationship. Divorce is about taking apart a life that was once built as a unit. It is about dividing property, re-envisioning what your life is going to look like in a new place, fighting for custody over children, as well as coming to an amount for child support or creating a plan to time share the children.

Unfortunately, child support is something people think is permanent. If you and your partner have come together to make a plan, please know that our child support attorney will tell you that nothing is permanent. There are always changes that can be made down the road to better accommodate your situation, You are not alone, and our child support lawyer at The Law Office Of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale is here to help you.
