Florida Divorce, Paternity, and Family Law Attorney
A divorce attorney will prepare you for the road ahead after being served with a petition for dissolution of marriage.

A divorce lawyer will work to ensure you have the divorce information and family law resources needed to understand the divorce process. Your divorce lawyer will help you know what to expect before making the decision to file for divorce.

A paternity lawyer can assist fathers if the mother will not allow the father to have visitation or time-sharing with their son or daughter. Many people today choose not to get married, but still have minor children together. A paternity lawyer can help fathers understand father’s rights in Florida and ensure the father is allowed appropriate visitation with their child. Alternatively, a paternity lawyer can help defend mother’s rights in situations where an unmarried father is attempting to re-enter a child’s life after a long period of absence or when the child may be unsafe in the father’s custody.
If a father is unsure if the child is his biological son/daughter, a paternity lawyer can assist in getting a court ordered paternity test. Once paternity is established, a paternity lawyer will help establish a custody arrangement that works for you and your ex as well as calculating child-support obligations and determining if retroactive child-support should be awarded.Learn More
A divorce lawyer will help with disputes regarding alimony or child support. Alimony in Florida can be difficult to determine. Some spouses are self-employed and may attempt to hide assets or show less income than they really earn. A Florida alimony lawyer will help ensure that income and assets are properly calculated and only the proper deductions are taken when calculating child support or alimony in Florida.
If you are owed unpaid alimony/spousal support or back child support, a divorce lawyer will help you understand your rights and assist with child support enforcement to help you get the support you need. This may mean attaching a judgment to existing assets or garnishing the wages of your ex-husband/wife until alimony or child support arrearages have been paid in full.Learn More

A family law attorney will help resolve time-sharing, schooling, and other disputes regarding children of divorced or unmarried parents.
If parents are unmarried, a paternity action may be necessary to establish the father’s legal rights.

Sometimes couples that have been divorced for years disagree when one parent unilaterally withholds time-sharing, decides to relocate, or changes schools.
