Why Hire an Attorney?

Many people question whether to hire an attorney for a family law legal matter. People often believe that they can represent themselves or that they have an “easy” case and do not need legal representation. In the vast majority of cases, this simply is not true, and you will benefit from hiring an attorney. Often issues arise during cases that were unanticipated. If you do not have an attorney to represent you, most likely you will not know how to handle these issues. Once a case is finalized or an order is entered, it is almost impossible to change the outcome. If you hire an attorney from the start, this can be avoided. Even an “easy” case can turn into a complicated case that requires skilled legal representation. People often do not hire attorneys because of the cost. There is no question that attorneys are expensive; however, it is worth the investment to assure that you are going to get the best outcome for your particular situation. It is much more costly to try to overturn a ruling or court order than hiring an attorney from the start of your case. It is risky to represent yourself in a family law case because the issues will affect your life forever. The determination of issues pertaining to minor children and finances should be taken seriously and handled by an experienced family law attorney. Family law cases often become long and drawn out, and it is very helpful to have an attorney expedite your case so that you may move on with your life as quickly as possible.

How A Family Lawyer Can Help

Family law can be difficult to navigate, especially if you’re unfamiliar with your rights. The last thing you’d want to worry about is defending yourself and your family in court.

Divorce lawyers are familiar with federal, state, and local laws surrounding family law matters. From parental rights to adoption procedures, family lawyers make it easy for you and your family to navigate an otherwise confusing legal system.

Family lawyers can help during custody hearings, adoption processing, and even alimony. They work to defend your rights and interests in a way that won’t put additional strain on your family. With in-depth knowledge about the laws surrounding families and their rights, our family law practice is here to assist you with difficult situations and ensure you have competent legal representation.

Uncontested and Contested Divorce in Central Florida

Many couples don’t realize that there are multiple types of divorce and that the type of divorce they choose to file can have an impact on how the procedure goes. In some circumstances, couples may qualify for uncontested divorces. In other cases, you may have to file a contested divorce.

No matter which type of divorce you and your spouse file for, our Orlando FL family lawyers are here to give you the best chance of defending your rights. We’ll offer advice and support throughout the divorce process and be with you through it all.

In uncontested divorces, it is up to both spouses to reach an agreement for all decisions, from child custody, parenting plans, and property division, to debt sharing. While nothing needs to go before a judge, divorce lawyers can help by ensuring the rights of both parties are respected while you work on coming to an agreement.

In contested divorces, you will need to give control to the courts. In this case, the court decides everything from child custody to property and debt division. This can be stressful, but with a family lawyer on your side, you can be confident that your rights will be fought for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Do if My Ex-Spouse Won’t Let Me See Our Children?
Unfortunately, this can be a complicated question. While many biological parents believe they have automatic parental rights, this may not always be the case in a custody dispute. It depends on state law. In Florida, for example, if the biological parents are not married when the child is born, the biological father does not have the father’s rights until paternity is officially established.

Fortunately, Orlando family law attorneys know all the intricacies surrounding local and state laws. We’ll be able to fight for you and get you the best-case scenario when it comes to the court’s decision regarding who should be the primary caretaker and what time-sharing responsibilities must be followed.

What Should I Do if My Spouse Wants to Move With Our Children Out of State?
In many cases, one spouse may decide to move out of state and take your children with them. If you’re worried this will happen or you know your spouse has plans to do so, it’s important that it’s taken into consideration when filing for divorce. Among some possible solutions, you could attempt a mediation with your ex-spouse or check if there is any clause about relocation in your parenting plan.

Our Orlando family law attorneys know how to protect your rights and prevent your spouse from keeping your children away from you. We will always try to achieve the best outcome in the best interests of you and your children.

I Don’t Want Anything to Do With My Spouse. Can I Waive Child Support in Order to Waive Time Sharing?
No. Unlike other rights in a divorce, time-sharing and child support is the right of your children and cannot be waived. They are treated as different legal obligations. Even if you don’t want much to do with your spouse, you will need to agree to child support. Similarly, your spouse cannot revoke time-sharing rights if you fail to pay child support. If you’re interested in what you can do to reduce interaction with your spouse, our family law attorneys can further explain your options.
