It’s unfortunate, but it happens: a marriage doesn’t work out. In a best case scenario, the breakup is amicable and the two parties go their own ways, possibly with a separation. This is a legal proceeding whereby a married couple asks the court to end their marital obligations to one another. They are still technically married until they get divorced. However, this situation becomes more complex when children are involved.
Custody cases can be difficult for everyone involved and, often, particularly in Florida, courts tend to favor the mother in family cases. The truth is that custody is decided by what is in the best interest of your child or children. Having a job or not having a job should not be the deciding factor in any custody judgement, however, you may find that your ability or inability to financially provide for your children can be an important factor.
