Parents seek to preserve family togetherness after divorce

Parents in Florida who decide to divorce may be looking for custody options that allow them to support their children through the confusion that can come with a parental divorce. Many people are opting for joint or shared custody in which both parents have roughly equal time with and responsibility for the children. In general, kids will move back and forth between their parents' homes and have a room and space in both houses. However, even though joint custody protects the parent-child relationship with both parents, it can still be a major shock for children. They are leaving the family home and may feel a sense of instability, particularly at first.

When can you leave the scene of an accident?

Whenever a car accident occurs, it is important to wait for law enforcement to arrive before leaving the scene.

While you may think that you are to blame for the accident, the evidence may tell a different story.
