Divorce

Handling contested divorce in Pinellas county, Pasco county, and Hillsborough County.  Providing uncontested divorce assistance throughout the State of Florida.  Divorce can be a difficult process to navigate.  Let someone else handle the legal aspects of divorce so you can have peace of mind and focus on your new life.

Divorce is a stressful time in a parent’s life.  A divorce lawyer can help alleviate some of that stress and put your mind at ease.  Pinellas Family Lawyer, Roland D. Boyd III, helps couples seeking divorce to resolve their differences in and out of court.  While some attorneys focus on “divorce for fathers” or “divorce for women”, Attorney Boyd focusses on the children (even fur babies), helping, mothers, fathers, and pet owners get the custody rights they deserve.

Child Custody Disputes

Helping resolve time-sharing, education, and other matters concerning children of divorced parents.  The best interest of the child is the most important thing to consider when making decisions regarding schooling, religion, time-sharing, and all other matters pertaining to the child’s daily life.

Some attorneys market themselves as “divorce for men” or “men’s only divorce” but Attorney Roland Boyd focusses on the children, not the gender of the parent.  There has been a long trend of mothers getting a more favorable ruling in family law court compared to men.  However, Florida law has abolished any preference towards one parent or the other based on sex/gender.  While there is no longer a presumed preference towards the mother being the primary care giver, the truth is there are still a lot of “traditional” households where the mother does provide most of the day to day care of the child.  The court considers many factors when deciding on an appropriate parenting plan, but whichever parent has a closer relationship with the child is going to start out on better footing with all other things being equal.

Just because you are a father that works full time while the mother stays at home with the kids, you should not automatically assume the mother will get everything she wants.  The key is to be interested in your child’s life and be able to show the court that you have the capacity and disposition to provide proper care for your child.  A family law attorney will help you understand how best to reach a resolution that allows you a fair time-sharing schedule with your child after divorce.

Back Child Support and Alimony Recovery

Assisting recovery of back child support and unpaid alimony.  Finances can be tough after a divorce. If your ex has failed to pay alimony or child support, don’t be afraid to stand up for what you are owed.  Even if you or your ex are already paying child support, a modification of child-support may be necessary when one parent has a substantial change in income.  A child support lawyer will help you present your financial situation to the court to help reach a fair award of child support based upon statutory guidelines.
