Resolve Family Matters Efficiently

Florida Divorce

Divorce in Florida is legally referred to as "dissolution of marriage." The state recognizes both fault and no-fault grounds for divorce. In a no-fault divorce, a spouse need only to state that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" without the need to assign blame. However, fault grounds may still be relevant when deciding issues such as alimony and the distribution of marital property.

Divorce is a life-altering event. Beyond ending a partnership, it's also about navigating property division, parenting schedules, and possibly even spousal support.

We're here to provide comprehensive guidance and advocacy throughout the entire process. We'll help you understand your rights, consider your options, and make informed decisions that protect your best interests.

Child Custody

When it comes to child custody matters, we believe in putting the child's best interests first. We're dedicated to helping parents establish and maintain meaningful relationships with their children, whether it involves negotiating a parenting plan or representing you in a contested custody battle. We strive to let your voice be heard and make sure your rights are respected.

Child Support

Child support helps ensure the financial well-being of your child. We're here to help you understand Florida's child support guidelines, calculate potential support amounts, and advocate for a fair outcome. Whether you're seeking to establish, modify, or enforce a child support order, we are here for you.


Establishing paternity is an important step in securing a father's rights and responsibilities. We assist both mothers seeking to establish paternity for child support purposes and fathers seeking to affirm their parental rights. We're committed to guiding you through this process with sensitivity and respect.


Guardianship cases often arise due to unfortunate circumstances, and they can be emotionally challenging. Whether you're seeking to establish guardianship or contest a proposed guardianship, we'll work diligently to protect your loved ones and your rights.


Mediation can be a beneficial alternative to litigation in many family law cases. It allows parties to retain control over the outcomes of their disputes, rather than leaving decisions up to a judge. We provide skilled mediation services designed to facilitate productive discussions and equitable solutions.

Relocation Issues

Relocation can complicate child custody arrangements significantly. If you're considering relocating with your child or if your former spouse is planning to move, we can help you understand your legal obligations and options. We'll work tirelessly to protect your parental rights and your child's best interests.


Alimony, or spousal support, can be a contentious issue in divorce proceedings. We're here to help you understand the factors that courts consider when determining alimony and to advocate for an equitable outcome. Whether you're seeking alimony or being asked to pay, we'll stand by you every step of the way.

Grandparent Rights

Grandparent rights vary by state. In Florida, grandparents can petition for visitation rights under certain conditions, such as if the parents are deceased, missing, or in a persistent vegetative state, or if one parent is deceased, missing, or in a vegetative state, and the other parent has been convicted of a felony or an offense of violence that poses a threat of harm to the child's health or welfare.

Additional Topics

From prenuptial agreements to adoption, from domestic violence injunctions to grandparent rights, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through.
