Fort Lauderdale Family Lawyer

 

No one can deny that the typical American family is different from what it was 50 years ago. The United States’ turbulent economy and rapidly changing society and culture have transformed the modern-day family, and our laws are struggling to catch up.

What is Florida Family Law?

 

It takes time, love, and patience to form a family, and many family matters can feel deeply personal. But when important issues such as divorce, child custody, and domestic violence arise, that’s where attorneys, the courts, and family law come into play.

 

Family law refers to statutes and case precedents that regulate the legal obligations of individuals sharing a domestic connection. In most cases, family law concerns individuals who are connected by marriage or blood.

 

However, family law can also involve distant and less formal relationships. Common family law cases include divorce, paternity, child support, alimony, and domestic violence. Because these types of cases are often sensitive, upsetting, and even traumatic, those facing family law concerns are highly encouraged to seek counsel from a lawyer with experience in this unique area of the law.

 

At the Florida Family Law Clinic, our lawyers understand that these types of family issues can be overwhelming—emotionally, mentally, and financially. That’s why our attorneys commit to handling each case with compassion and sensitivity. We make every effort to make the legal processes as smooth as possible, allowing you to focus your effort and energies on the care and well-being of your family.

Determining if You Need a Florida Family Law Attorney

 

Civil family proceedings do not usually demand that you obtain legal representation, but choosing to represent yourself can lead to confusion and getting pushed into agreements that don’t satisfy your needs or those of your family.

 

The issues surrounding family law matters can be extremely complex, and the results of your case can cause a lot of discord between you and your loved ones.

 

If you are facing important or life-changing issues with your family, hiring a family law attorney is the best move you can make. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common family issues that may require legal representation:

 


  • Divorce

    Divorce rates have been on the rise since the beginning of the 20th century, skyrocketing after the 1970s institution of no-fault divorce. In Florida, divorce refers to the dissolution of a marriage, which typically involves the reorganization of the legal responsibilities of the union. Whether you are only considering a divorce or already involved in the filing process, a divorce lawyer is essential to ensure smooth proceedings that are fair and beneficial to your family.

  • Paternity

    Paternity, in simplest terms, refers to legal fatherhood. If a child is born out of wedlock and there is no acknowledgement of paternity, a father, mother, or child may petition a court to establish paternity—ideally with the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer.

  • Child Support

    Child support is a court-ordered financial obligation, usually assigned to a non-custodial parent after a divorce, to support and care for a child as he or she matures. When you need calculations, modifications, or additional enforcement measures for your child support, an attorney can help.

  • Time sharing

    In Florida, parenting plans known as time sharing have replaced traditional custody arrangements. Time sharing involves the guardianship, residency, and care of a child. Custody disputes can have a huge impact on your role as a parent, and a lawyer can help you understand your options and rights.

  • Alimony

    Alimony is a husband or wife’s court-ordered payments for the support of another spouse. A skilled alimony lawyer can ensure a fair settlement by demonstrating to the court the length of your marriage, the standard of living you had, and your contributions to the marriage.

  • Marital property distribution

    If a divorcing couple is unable to negotiate a property settlement, the court will apply equitable distribution in an attempt to provide both parties with a reasonable settlement. By enlisting the aid of an attorney, you can ensure a fair settlement on property and debt issues before finalizing your divorce.

  • Domestic violence

    Florida law states that domestic violence is violent or aggressive behavior resulting in the injury of a family or household member by another family or household member. Whether you have been party to domestic violence or have been charged with this type of crime, it is crucial that you seek legal advice about your rights and options.

  • Post-divorce litigation

    Post-divorce litigation occurs after a divorce or separation, addressing the modification or enforcements of previously-ruled divorce court judgments. If you have issues or concerns with a court order pertaining to your divorce, support, or custody arrangements, an attorney can fight for your rights in a post-divorce lawsuit.
