Custody and Paternity in Florida

In Florida, both parents have an equal opportunity to share time with their minor children. During a divorce, a time share plan that is in the child's best interest will be developed and approved by the court. It is a smart idea to talk to an attorney to make certain that you and your family's best interests are advocated for.

If you have children but are not married, you should know that you still have custody rights. Most commonly, the main time share parent is entitled to child support and the other parent is entitled to visitation time. To fully assert your rights as a parent, you should pursue an adjudication of paternity. If you have questions or concerns, you should speak to a lawyer about your options.

Domestic Violence Representation

If you fear that violence may become an issue in your situation, there are actions you can take to safeguard your future. Violations of injunctions can have serious consequences that may even be prosecuted on the federal level. At our firm, we represent individuals from both sides of the case, so we fully understand how to build a strong argument on your behalf. We know how the opposing party will likely present its case, and will use our experience to create an effective strategy for your situation.
