When you’re looking for the best family law attorney in the area, make sure I am on your list to talk to.
These are some of the common topics I address for clients. If you need help with these or similar family law issues, call me at 727-862-4411.
DIVORCE: I can help with any and all divorce issues, from a mediated settlement to the courtroom.
CHILD CUSTODY ISSUES: In child custody cases, I strive to achieve the best interest of the child – working toward a productive and amicable agreement between the parents. Sometimes that’s just not possible though, and I will never hesitate to take child custody issues to court.
CHILD SUPPORT: Parents, whether custodial or non-custodial, have real obligations when it comes to the care and support of their children. I will fight to ensure a fair child support settlement is reached, and that the order is enforced.
MODIFICATION OF AGREEMENTS: Circumstances change and sometimes a legal agreement no longer meets the needs of a family. I can petition the court to modify agreements when changes are called for.
CONTEMPT OF EXISTING LAW AGREEMENT: If the other party fails to meet the obligations of your legal agreement, I will petition the court for a contempt ruling.
PATERNITY: The rights and responsibilities that go with fatherhood are significant. If you have questions or doubts about paternity, good representation is essential to protecting your rights.
VISITATION: When a divorce includes children, there are many more issues that require close examination. I work to ensure that both mothers and fathers are able to obtain, or keep, their visitation rights (parenting time) with their children.
COHABITATION AGREEMENT: Many couples choose not to marry, or can’t get married in Florida. There are legal issues that those couples may wish to codify or negotiate, and I can help.
RESTRAINING ORDERS: There are many reasons for a divorce, but if you or your children are threatened by a spouse or ex-partner, I will seek emergency restraining orders and pursue additional action as needed.
GBLT FAMILY LAW ISSUES: Same-sex couples face an evolving legal landscape. I can help ensure that your family has up-to-date protections in that shifting framework.
