flat fee divorce services if this aligns with your particular case and goals. Our team has the experience to know how to address the many issues that may arise during your divorce, such as child custody,
alimony and the
recovery of attorney's fees. Your lawyer can analyze your particular financial situation to determine whether you may have the right to or may be asked to pay
rehabilitative alimony or
transitional alimony as well as child support.
Child custody is typically one of the most hotly disputed areas of a divorce. Parents have strong opinions regarding how their children should be raised, and determining physical and legal custody is therefore of the utmost importance. Child support and visitation tie in to custody as well, so there is much to sort out in these matters. We approach child custody disputes, enforcement and modification with the utmost care, taking the time to fully understand our clients' needs and concerns so we can develop a plan of action that will help them reach their goals. Although the Florida courts typically award shared custody, there are some circumstances where sole custody may be awarded to one parent because the other has a history of domestic violence or a problem with drug or alcohol abuse. No matter the circumstances of your case, you can count on your attorney at our firm to protect your parental rights. Click here to learn more about child custody.
There are a number of post-divorce related matters our lawyers can also address for our clients, such as the modification of child support,
modification of child custody or
modification of alimony and the
relocation of children. If you are having trouble receiving the support you are entitled to or your ex-spouse is not complying with custody or visitation orders, we can help with the
enforcement of settlement agreements,
enforcement of court orders and
contempt of court proceedings.
Our experience in this often complex and emotional field enables us to protect the rights of both civilian and military clients, mothers, fathers and step-parents in all family law related matters.
