Our firm provides experienced legal assistance in matters such as child residence, child support, timesharing, alimony and property division in divorce. We strive to find efficient and workable solutions for our clients through litigation and/or mediation.
Child residence arrangements can involve physical residence, legal residence, school residence and timesharing. We can represent you through these issues which are subject to the ever evolving Florida Statutes, which have had great impact on these matters.
Child support payments are based upon statutory guidelines. We represent parents who are experiencing issues in regards to support of children, whether temporary, permanent, retroactive or for modification purposes. In addition, as an integral part of child support, issues of daycare, aftercare, health insurance, uncovered medical expenses and extracurricular activities are taken into consideration. Child support is also an issue which is evolving pursuant to the Florida Statutes and requires Counsel who is up to date and current on those Statutes which do effect support related issues.
Modification and Enforcement
Family law issues can arise after a divorce decree or support judgment have been entered or made final. These issues generally include decreased or increased income of one of the parents, child residence, child support, and spousal support.
Our firm represents people who are victims of domestic violence, as well as those who have been falsely accused of violence.
Fathers have rights in Florida. Whether you are not married to your child’s mother or are experiencing a divorce, we can protect your rights. It is important to recognize that the establishment of paternity and support through the Department of Revenue, or another state agency does NOT address issues of timesharing and residence. Unfortunately, the public has not been educated as to what process needs to be performed in order to enforce and establish Father’s rights.
Timesharing issues are an integral part of divorce, paternity, support and domestic violence. Timesharing should be a priority in all cases involving children. Children do have a right to have continuing and frequent access with both parents, unless it is determined that such unrestricted timesharing would not be in the best interests of the children. It is important to recognize that the establishment of paternity and support through the Department of Revenue, or another state agency does NOT address issues of timesharing and residence.
