Picking an attorney can be a more difficult decision than you might think. You will need to consider his or her qualifications, fees and billing practices, how they interact with you,and how they handle cases in the courtroom. It can be helpful to get opinions from friends and family, who may be able to lead you to an appropriate attorney.
With all of these considerations, you can seek the services of a Florida family law attorney who can assist you with cases concerning:
- child custody, timesharing and child support
- division of assets, including the marital home, bank and brokerage accounts, cars and retirement funds
- negotiating and signing a prenuptial agreement, marital settlement agreement or post-divorce modification agreement
- establishing paternity for parents who are not married
- obtaining an annulment
- stepparent adoptions
- post-divorce relocation with children
As areas of law have become very specialized, a well-qualified and experienced Florida family law attorney will usually practice almost exclusively family law.
