The Florida Bar Family Law Section will be encouraging the Florida Legislature to address at least some of the following in the upcoming session:
- Specify whether both parents require court permission to relocate his or her residence.
- Clarify the definition of “parenting plan recommendation” to allow Guardians Ad Litem and any person authorized to perform social investigations to make a parenting plan recommendation and require the parenting plan to list the address to be used when registering the children for school.
- Child support: remove the 25% reduction in child care costs when calculating child support; impute minimum wage and other standards for imputation of income; terminate child support as children reach the age of majority; allocate support per child so that new support is readily ascertainable when one reaches the age of majority; eliminate guidelines for income below the poverty level.
- Address security and/or interest when equitable distribution payment cannot be paid in a lump sum.
