Any time children are involved in a divorce, tensions always run high, especially if one parent wants sole custody. However, in most cases in Florida, both parents agree to share parental responsibility in a joint custody agreement.
In this arrangement, one parent is awarded physical custody and the other parent is given generous visitation or “time-sharing” rights.
Both parents are required by law to create a parenting plan to determine “time-sharing,” as well as other important matters involving the welfare of their child. Parental plans need to be extremely detailed and include a systematic time-sharing schedule, as well as guidelines for issues related to:
- extracurricular activities
- and others
At Mindi Lasley, P.A., we have extensive experience drafting and litigating parenting plans that are in the best interests of you and your child(ren). Ms. Lasley customizes a plan that is tailored to your child(ren)’s needs and then persuasively presents the plan to the court for approval.
Both parents in Florida are legally required to financially support their children until they reach 18 years of age. In the event of a divorce, child support is provided by the non-custodial parent to assist the custodial parent in providing a home, food, clothing and any other necessities for their minor child(ren).
Ms. Lasley is dedicated to making sure custodial parents receive the child support they are entitled to.
If the non-custodial parent refuses to pay court ordered child support, a motion of contempt can be filed which can lead to:
- suspension of driver’s license
- garnishment of wages and/or tax refund
- confinement in the county jail
In addition, our firm represents non-custodial parents in child support enforcement cases and family law cases, and we advocate on their behalf to make sure they are not paying more child support than they are legally obligated to pay.
Mindi Lasley, P.A. handles contested and uncontested adoption cases and represents clients who are adopting a child, as well as parents who are trying to maintain their parental rights.

Regardless of whether you plan to adopt domestically, from a family member, or out of the country, we will represent you in the adoption process and make sure the process runs smoothly, including terminating the rights of biological parents.
