Steps For Success In Family Law

Domestic Violence Injunctions

In Florida family law, "DV" typically refers to Domestic Violence. Domestic violence encompasses a range of abusive behaviors occurring within personal relationships, such as those between spouses, partners, parents and children, or other family members. Florida law defines domestic violence as any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member.

Legal Name Change

Legal name change is the official process by which an individual can legally alter their name. It typically involves petitioning the court, providing valid reasons for the change, and obtaining a court order to officially adopt the new name.

Step Parent Adoption

Step-parent adoption is the legal process through which a step-parent becomes the legal parent of their spouse's child. It typically involves terminating the rights of the non-custodial parent and establishing legal ties between the step-parent and the child, granting them parental rights and responsibilities.

Family Relocation

Family relocation in family law refers to the process of one or both parents moving with their children to a new location, often after divorce or separation. It involves legal considerations regarding custody arrangements, visitation schedules, and obtaining court approval if the move significantly impacts the children's access to the other parent.

Parenting Plans

In Florida, a parenting plan is a comprehensive document outlining how separated or divorced parents will share responsibilities and make decisions regarding their children's upbringing. It is required in all cases involving time-sharing arrangements and serves as a roadmap for co-parenting after divorce or separation.

Postnuptial agreement

A postnuptial agreement is a legal document created by a married couple after marriage, specifying how assets and liabilities will be divided in the event of divorce or death. Similar to a prenuptial agreement, it addresses financial matters and provides clarity and protection for both spouses.

Divorce

In the state of Florida, there are two main types of divorces: contested and uncontested.

Child Support

Child support is financial assistance provided by one parent to the other for the upbringing and care of their child(ren) after separation or divorce. It is typically determined by guidelines that consider factors such as the income of both parents and the needs of the child(ren), ensuring that the child's essential needs are met.

Child Custody

Child custody refers to the legal and practical responsibility for a child's care, upbringing, and decision-making. It typically involves determining where the child will live (physical custody) and who will make important decisions about their welfare (legal custody), with arrangements made based on the child's best interests and often negotiated between the parents or decided by a court.

Alimony


Alimony, also known as spousal support, is financial assistance provided by one spouse to the other after divorce or separation. It is intended to help maintain the receiving spouse's standard of living, especially if there is a significant disparity in income or financial dependency, and is often determined by factors such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and any agreements made during the divorce proceedings.

Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract created by a couple before marriage, outlining how assets and liabilities will be divided in the event of divorce or death. It typically addresses property division, spousal support, and other financial matters, providing clarity and protection for both parties by establishing predetermined terms for asset distribution.
