Family Law

Relocation of A Spouse In Divorce

A particularly troublesome area of family law concerns a request to relocate by a former spouse with children after the divorce. When a parent wishes to relocate to another state or even another part of the State of Florida, frequent contact with the children is difficult and can become impossible. This problem often occurs when […]


Pursuant to Florida law, there is a presumption that if children are born during a marriage, the Husband and Wife are the legal mother and father of those children. When circumstances arise that the children are born outside of a marriage, the putative father may seek paternity testing. Paternity testing consists of a scientific test […]

Parenting Plans

As of October 1, 2008, the Florida legislature mandated that Parenting Plans must be prepared for cases involving minor children.

The Parenting Plan contains timesharing schedules for the children and […]

Mediation and Dispute Resolution

After financial disclosure with one another, the parties and their respective attorneys meet with a professional mediator, experienced in settling divorce cases. The mediation conference can occur before the actual divorce proceeding is filed at the court […]

Marital Misconduct

Florida is a “no fault” state and this is not commonly known by individuals in Florida seeking a divorce. In other words, the fact that one spouse had an affair and the other did not, or perhaps both spouses “cheated” is often not evidence that the Family Judge will consider. More often than not, the […]

Enforcement of a Settlement Agreement

If your divorce case was resolved by the entry of an agreement, and not by a trial before a Judge, there may come a time that your former spouse does not comply with the terms and conditions of the agreement. If this occurs, you may need to move to enforce or compel this or her […]
