Handling Sensitive Family Matters With Personal Care, Attention, and Legal Expertise

Divorce: The end of a marriage can be traumatic and leave you with many unresolved issues. Our firm will guide you through the entire legal process and keep you informed every step of the way so you won’t feel overwhelmed or confused. We fiercely advocate for your interests in dividing property, spousal support/alimony, child custody and support, etc.

Division of Marital Assets and Liabilities: Are you worried about how the court will divide your property in a divorce? We protect your rights and interests and fight for what you feel you deserve.

Alimony or Spousal Support: Whether you are seeking alimony or being forced to pay it, we help calculate an amount that is fair and reasonable and negotiate a lump sum, periodic payments, or a permanent fixed payment for a number of years.

Parental Custody & Visitation: Your kids mean the world to you and you just want to make sure they are taken care of during this time of change. We are very sensitive to the needs of children and will do everything possible to act in their best interests. Our firm helps negotiate custody arrangements and visitation/time-sharing schedules that benefit the entire family.

Child Support: Child support in Florida is calculated using a mathematical formula. We input the variables into a child support calculator to arrive at a payment that is fair for both parents and in the best interests of the children.

Taxes in a Divorce: Your taxes will change after a divorce. We discuss all the ways your tax filing status may be affected, including property transfers, taxability of alimony payments and dependency deductions for children.

Paternity: Whether you are a mother seeking child support from someone you believe to be the biological father of your child, or a father who is unsure if the child is yours, we help get you the answers you so desperately need.

Stepparent Adoptions: Do you want to legally adopt your spouse’s child? We can help you gather the necessary legal documents to terminate the biological parent’s rights and make your blended family official.

Military Family Issues: We have represented many military members and their spouses with their own individual needs and family problems dealing with divorce, long deployments, PTSD and other issues related solely to the military family.

Domestic Violence: Are you being physically or sexually abused or threatened by a family or household member? We know how difficult it is to come forward, and we applaud you for your bravery. Our firm is sensitive to the needs of anyone involved in a domestic violence situation and can help keep you safe by obtaining a protective order or injunction.
