Divorces:

Either you or your spouse has filed or is considering filing for a divorce. In Florida, one party has to file a Petition for Dissolution to start the divorce proceedings.

How we can help.

Custody:

What it means.
Far too often, separated parents cannot come to terms on which parent the child should live with. If the parents cannot make the decision, the courts will look to a variety of factors to determine who the child should live with.

How we can help.
I can sit down with the two of you to help you come to an agreement about your child.

Child Support:

What it means.
When one parent has a child for a “substantial amount of time” and the other parent does not, that other parent owes child support.

At the law firm, we can help make sure that you are either paying the correct amount or receiving the correctamount.

Paternity:

What it means.
In Florida, when a child is born in a marriage, the child is automatically assumed to be the child of the husband. Alternatively, when a child is born out of marriage, the child is not necessarily linked to the correct father.

How we can help.
The law firm can arrange paternity tests, file petitions to establish the correct father, and then establish child support for the correct parents.

The law firm can assist you in filing all of the necessary documents in order to receive a temporary injunction order.
