Divorce

Child Custody

Florida statutes refer to divorce as “marriage dissolution.” It ends a marriage and, in certain ways, changes the lifestyle that went with it. By working closely with our family law attorneys, you may be able to preserve many assets, minimize tax consequences and in some cases even keep the family home.

When getting a divorce, you have many factors to consider, and couples with children face additional challenges. We are here to help resolve your family matters quickly. When settlement is impossible, we provide the experience of trial attorneys, ready to effectively litigate your case.

Parents love their children and often want to spend as much time with them as possible. One of the most difficult aspects of divorce is working out a parenting plan (visitation rights and custody) and arranging schedules in the children’s best interests yet also accommodating demands on parents’ lives. Options include sole custody, joint custody and rotating custody.

Child custody also involves physical custody, which is providing for the child’s daily needs (food, shelter, clothing, transportation to school and social events) and legal custody, where parents make major decisions about health care, education, religious upbringing and social activities for the child. In a divorce involving minor children, you face difficult decisions regarding their future. We have assisted countless parents in these all-important matters.

Alimony

Visitation

Today, with both spouses often working, not every divorce involves alimony. The crucial factors in determining alimony are the extent of a spouse’s inability to be self-supportive along with the lifestyle previously maintained during the marriage.

Alimony or spousal support, whether temporary or permanent, is meant to help a spouse continue to enjoy a standard of living similar to what was enjoyed during the marriage.

Making child visitation arrangements work for the parents and focus on the needs of the children is always a challenge. We have extensive experience handling that challenge, and creating strong arrangements that best serve all of the interests involved.

Enforcement

Modification

Divorce decrees are legal orders. Those who choose not to follow an order may be held in contempt of court. A court order that initially works well may not continue to serve your needs or the needs of the children without adjustment. We handle all types of divorce modifications.

Paternity

In Florida, the court will find out who the father is and then order him to provide the most support possible for the child. Legal representation in Florida paternity cases is critical.
