Assisting With A Broad Range Of Family Law Issues

We know family law encompasses a wide range of issues that families often encounter.  We provide the compassionate and knowledgeable advice you need to deal with these matters, including:

  • Divorce—Understanding your rights regarding marital property, alimony, and parenting your children. We provide legal guidance to efficiently and cost-effectively work through the process.
  • Child Support–Establishment of court-ordered child support calculated by the statutory guidelines in accordance with Florida Law.
  • Child Custody—This involves where the child spends their time. Florida now uses time-sharing and parental responsibility to describe this concept.
  • Parenting Plans—Established during divorce or paternity cases, a parenting plan governs how the parties will co-parent.
  • Alimony—Alimony is based on the need of one party and the ability to pay the other party and should be considered during divorce proceedings.
  • Contempt—Enforcing previously ordered judgments.
  • Modification–Sometimes a substantial change in circumstances warrants a modification to a previously ordered plan.
  • Relocation—Florida law establishes rules regarding relocating with children, so it is important to know your rights and responsibilities if contemplating a move.
  • Adoptions—Formalizing the adoption for matched parties.
  • Paternity—Helping fathers establish their legal rights to their child and a time-sharing schedule in the best interests of the child.
  • Name Change—Changing your legal name or the name of your child.
  • Guardian ad Litem—Working as a third-party neutral to determine the best interests of the child in an ongoing family law matter.
