Family Law Services That You Can Count On!

Family law is one of the most emotional areas of law. Tensions are usually running high, and finding reasonable solutions may feel impossible.

As an experienced and dedicated Orlando Florida Family Law attorney for over 20 years, I have built my practice helping women, men, and children find lasting solutions to family problems throughout Orlando and Central Florida. Whether you are getting divorced or need to modify existing child support arrangements, we can work closely with you to find legal solutions to meet your goals.

Contact my firm today if you or a loved one needs legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Jurisdictional Issues (Relocation)
  • Spousal Support (Alimony)
  • Modifications

I understand that divorce and other family law matters are exhausting, both emotionally and financially. My firm will work closely with you throughout the process, giving you the answers you need to make informed legal decisions.

Although we are always prepared to go to court, we strive to find effective solutions outside of trial because no one understands your family and your needs better than you do. Laws are meaningless until a client's circumstances and facts are taken into consideration, and I strive to help all of my clients find the solutions they need that will work for all.

Family Law FAQ's

Q: In the event of domestic violence, what should a person do?
A:
First and foremost, it is important for the person to get away from the aggressor and in the event of domestic violence, contact the police immediately. Often, local police officers and sheriffs have received special training with respect to domestic violence and can be extremely helpful to a victim. In addition to local law enforcement personnel, city and district attorneys may be very helpful in providing referrals to other local assistance - emergency shelters such as "safe houses," counseling, and legal assistance. Of course, assistance with prosecution is available.

Q: Can a court order alimony payments after a divorce or separation?
A:
Yes. As part of the judgment of dissolution or legal separation, a court may order one spouse to pay the other alimony.

Q: What are some common arrangements for child visitation?
A:
Child visitation, often pursuant to a parenting plan, can take a variety of forms or schedules. Some common arrangements include some of the following provisions:

  1. Alternate weekend visitation with the non-custodial parent, including "three-day holidays"
  2. Mid-week visitation with the non-custodial parent
  3. Sharing of the child during periods of school recess -winter, spring and summer
  4. New Year's Eve, Easter, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with one parent or the other in alternate years (click here for a useful article on holiday visitations)
  5. Mother's Day with Mother, Father's Day with Father
  6. Alternate years on the child's birthday
  7. Open telephone contact by the parent who does not have actual physical custody of the child
  8. Exchange of a few days of visitation here and there as mutually agreed without the need for a change or modification of the court order
