A Typical Family Case

Here’s where you can learn about the many steps and processes involved in a typical family law case.  There are many rules and procedures that must always be followed so we explain everything you may encounter during your case.  We walk you through the whole process from the initial meeting with your lawyer, to document preparation and all the steps we take to reach a successful outcome for you and your family. 

Child Custody Law

In Florida, child custody law revolves around what’s in the “best interest of the child” – not the parents’ best interests.  Every judge must consider a long list of legal factors in making their decision.  The court is required to examine each of the twenty-one statutory factors in each custody decision.  You need a high-quality family lawyer to help develop and prepare your child custody case.

Enforcement of Judgments

Sometimes your spouse or ex will not follow the court’s final judgment.  Not paying child support or alimony, or failing to turn over property are typical violations.  The contempt and enforcement lawyers at the Spence Law Firm can help.  All final orders and judgments made by courts must be followed- otherwise, the non-compliant party can face consequences such as jail time, fines, and payment of your attorney’s fees.

Modification of Judgments

The Spence Law Firm has the expertise to assist with any questions about how to modify post-judgment obligations.  Because needs and the ability to meet them may change after a final judgment is signed, a parent or former spouse can always ask the family court to increase or decrease the amount of alimony or child support or change the terms of child custody or even the visitation arrangements.  If you have questions about your family law case contact an experienced Orlando modification lawyer at The Spence Law Firm.

Paternity Law

When the parents are not married when their child is born, the mother is the natural guardian and the father has no legally enforceable rights regarding the child.  Florida law requires courts to treat Fathers equally to Mothers when making decisions related to their children, with the best interest of the child being the primary consideration.  We help paternity clients understand their rights and options.  Both parents have a duty to support their children, and both parents have the right to be active participants in the lives of their kids.

Relocation With Children

When a couple gets divorced, they can typically move out of the area without any strings attached.   But if there are minor children involved then things get more complicated.   When one parent moves with the child and the other stays behind in their current location (or vice versa), then that will affect how often the non-relocating parent will see their child and could change the dynamics of the relationship.  On the other hand, there are good reasons why one parent may want to move, so it’s important to consult with a lawyer who is skilled in handling your relocation with children case.
