Military Divorce and Child Custody
Military couples undoubtedly face unique struggles that other families do not have to regularly encounter. Military couples spend a significant amount of time away from one another, which could cause difficulties in almost any divorce. This is one of the primary reasons that military couples decide to dissolve their marriage. When this occurs, there are very important steps that should be taken to ensure that each individual's rights are accurately regarded. Child custody is one of the most highly disputed aspects of a military divorce.
Protecting the Child's Best Interest
When the military parent spends a great amount of time away from his or her child, child custody becomes a hard fight to win. These complicated schedules often make this topic an extensive challenge. It is not automatically assumed that the mother will receive full custody because the state of Florida takes many factors into consideration.
The parents should be able to develop a parenting plan, whether through mediation or on their own. If they are able to agree on a plan that shows evidence of placing the best interest of the child as first priority, the courts will typically accept the agreement.
