Going to family court is always stressful, often because it means there are legal issues involving your closest relationships. Whether a case involves your marriage, children, or both, the outcome of the case can affect your future in many ways. You should immediately contact a family lawyer in Melbourne regarding your situation. Below are some frequently asked questions about our family law services.

Do I need a lawyer for a divorce?

Everyone can benefit from having an experienced divorce attorney, even if you believe that your divorce will be relatively simple. Every divorce involves many legal issues, such as:

  • Division of property, assets, and debts
  • Parenting time and decision-making rights
  • Child support
  • Spousal support

Even a seemingly straightforward divorce can have complications, and an attorney can help you avoid delays and unnecessary expenses. It is especially necessary to have the right lawyer if you and your spouse are adversarial or if your divorce involves substantial assets.

Can I get sole custody of my kids?

Florida courts no longer assume that a mother should have sole custody of a child. Instead, the courts presume that having time with both parents is in a child’s best interests. Often, sole custody is only possible when you can prove the other parent poses the threat of harm to your child or does not want to be involved in the child’s life. A skilled attorney can advise you of your options for child custody in your case.

Will my case go to court?

While some divorce cases require a trial to resolve certain issues, it is often beneficial for parties to agree on resolutions out of court. Our law firm helps clients find agreeable solutions through negotiation, mediation, and other methods to save resources whenever possible.
