Our family law attorneys understand the complicated emotions involved in a divorce. They will take the time to explain your rights and responsibilities under Florida law. Our attorneys understand that every divorce is different and will tailor representation to your particular needs. For example, in some cases the parties agree as to all issues and the divorce proceeds to an uncontested judgment. In other cases, the parties are unable to agree and, ultimately, a contested hearing or trial will occur. In addition to these options, many clients chose to pursue a Collaborative Divorce. Collaborative Divorce is an alternative to the traditional adversarial approach and focuses on negotiation, compromise and a less confrontational process. No matter how your divorce proceeds, our family law attorneys are here to protect and advocate for your best interests. Our attorneys will help you understand your rights when it comes to child support, alimony, division of assets and liabilities, time-sharing with your children and much more.
The structure of the modern family has changed over the years. A growing number of children are born into relationships where the parents are not married. Fortunately, Florida law provides a way to establish the paternity of these children. Additionally, the Court will determine the rights and responsibilities of both parents. The Court will make determinations regarding important issues, such as: how much child support is owed; how much time is shared with each parent; and the amount of involvement of each parent in decision making for the child’s care.
Whether your case began as a divorce or a paternity action, the court entered a final judgment at the end of the proceedings. This judgment outlines the responsibilities and rights of all parties involved. Unfortunately, sometimes people do not comply with the terms of the judgment. For example, one party may not pay child support, or one parent may not allow the other parent to spend time with the children. Fortunately, Florida law provides a procedure to enforce compliance with the court’s decisions. If your case is final and someone is not complying with the judgment, we can assist you in determining what enforcement options are available.
The world is constantly changing. Family situations can change too. Sometimes what a court ordered years ago does meet today’s needs or changed circumstances. That is why timesharing, parenting plans and child support agreements need to be modified from time to time. If you need to have a current court order modified, we can help.
