No contact orders protect victims

Florida residents may be able to recall a time in life in which they had cause to fear another person. If someone has been abused, harassed or otherwise harmed by an individual, he or she may want to look into no contact orders. A no contact order is a legal document signed by a judge and enforceable by law, preventing an aggressor from having any further communication with a victim. 

Local sheriff named in paternity suit

Florida parents may know that when they are expecting a child, there is more to preparation than buying clothes, blankets and toys. Legally, when a child is born, paternity must be established. If the parents are married, the husband is presumed to be the father. If parents are not married and the child is born out of wedlock, paternity must be established another way. 

How to handle child custody disputes

Many Florida parents may be familiar with the stress that can occur when an argument about custody arises. Sometimes it can be quite difficult for parents to discuss custody, and when there is a dispute, a situation can quickly escalate. Parents should be aware that when it comes to child custody disputes, it is often not a good idea to try to handle it alone.
