Family law is a broad description for a number of different actions brought before the court which directly impact a family unit. Some of the cases we handle in the area of family law are: Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage); Paternity (Child Custody); Support Unconnected with Divorce; Department of Revenue Child Support actions, Step Parent Adoptions; Grandparent Adoption; Prenuptial Agreements; Military Divorce; Domestic Violence and Stalking Injunctions; and, Collaborative Divorce.
In the State of Florida the term “custody” has been removed from the content of the governing statutes and the same has been replaced with the terms “parental responsibility” and “time-sharing”. Every order entered by a court which addresses a child should have a Parenting Plan included or incorporated therein.
A Paternity action is a legal proceeding in which a parent of a child born out of wedlock seeks to establish the biological father as the legal father of the child. In an action to establish paternity, the court has the authority to also establish child support, timesharing, parental responsibility, as well as address nearly any other child related matter.
