Custody and religious upbringing in Florida

Many Florida parents who are of different faiths go on to get a divorce. A contentious question often arises regarding in which religion the child will be raised by the custodial parent. If the parents are unable to agree, the court will be left in a position in which it must balance the fundamental First Amendment rights of the parent to choose their own religion versus the best interests of the child.

Virtual visitation in Florida

Florida, along with several other states, has enacted laws regarding virtual visitation. Virtual visitation allows non-custodial parents to use electronic forms of communication, including video conferencing and instant messaging, to maintain a relationship with their children.

Shared child custody laws are being considered in many states

Child custody could be changing in today's divorce cases. Lawmakers in several states across the nation are considering the possibility that parents who divorce should get equal custody of the children in most cases. Individual custody could still be awarded to one parent, of course, if the other parent has a history of abuse or some other reason that would make them unfit as a primary caregiver.
