You are an active father who contributes significantly to the overall well-being of your child. Not only do you financially provide for your kid, but you play an active role in everything from potty training to homework. As your marriage starts coming to an end, you may fear this connection getting lost due to a contentious fight over custody.
Every year, many women become pregnant without knowing conclusively who the father is. There are a variety of reasons why paternity tests are necessary, such as a partner believing he is not actually the father of the child and should not pay child support as a result.
One option you may not be aware of if you are thinking about divorce in the Broward and Miami-Dade areas is mediation. If you believe your marriage is beyond repair and want to minimize the impact of your decision on everyone, divorce mediation is an option that can help you achieve those goals and more.
When you and your spouse have decided that you want to part ways, it's an emotionally overwhelming time. When there are children involved, it feels like even more lives are being torn apart. While you may want to go your separate ways, that doesn't necessarily mean you are looking for a battle. It's especially important to you, for the sake of your children, that you and your soon-to-be ex can at least present a united front and remain civil. But isn't divorce acrimonious by nature?
