When you and your ex don't see eye-to-eye about how to raise your children, the situation might get heated. It is important for you to keep your wits about you when that happens and make sure that you aren't doing anything that runs afoul of the law. The fact remains that Florida laws apply to all aspects of life, even child custody matters.
Last week, we discussed how Florida recording laws apply to recording your ex. That is only one consideration that you have to think about when you deal with your ex. If you already have a child custody order in place, you must ensure that you abide by the terms of that order. Failing to do so can lead to you having to deal with legal issues.
We know that you only want what is best for your child. That should be the springboard for how you deal with your ex. Things might get tense, but if you remain cordial to each other, your child will probably learn a valuable life lesson about how to deal with conflict.
There might be times when you need someone to step in to help resolve a conflict. If the issue is one that falls under the scope of a child custody agreement, such as if the custodial parent can move the child out of the area, heading to court is one way to get that resolved. We can help you to learn about what options you have for getting the issues that you have handled in a way that truly puts your child's unique needs first.
