Complex Family Law Matters in Florida
Family law encompasses many legal matters, from divorce to child custody and adoption. Families are diverse and have a unique history which can also mean that they have unique issues that need to be resolved. For those in need of assistance with a critical family law issue, an attorney can help.
While some family issues can be resolved without legal intervention, it is crucial to understand that a lawyer does not just assist clients with their divorce or custody order. An attorney often provides insight and support throughout the legal process. They are a resource for families and individuals who offer legal counsel based on their experience and education during challenging times.
Some family matters may become complicated without an attorney, or your rights may not be protected in court. Many complex issues may arise, and it is always best to consult an attorney.
Property Division and Child Custody
The two most complicated and emotionally draining family law matters include property division during divorce and child custody. These issues involve finances, familial relationships, and the law, and the outcome could impact your future.
During a divorce, the court will divide property according to the rules of equitable division. This means that the court will evaluate each spouse's contribution to the marriage and financial position and decide which property is given to each spouse. The court attempts to do this fairly, but the judge may not have enough information, or your testimony may not be considered. If this happens, you may not be given access to marital property equal to your spouse.
Child custody can be contentious, especially for spouses who cannot agree on their divorce. While the court acts in the child's best interests, every detail and piece of evidence must be presented before the court. Your child should be in the safest environment possible, and ensuring that they are taken care of is a top priority. If the outcome of your child custody case is not favorable, an attorney can help you file an appeal to reopen the case.
Child custody can also come up outside of divorce. For remarried spouses, stepparents may adopt the child after marriage. Contact an attorney if you are a stepparent or your new spouse would like to adopt your child. A legal representative can guide you through the process and advocate for your interests every step of the way.
