Helping With a Variety of Parenting Issues

- If you are going through a divorce, child custody is a major issue that can often go more smoothly when everyone understands what the law is trying to accomplish. I have extensive experience addressing these issues effectively.
- If you are seeking modification of an existing family court order, or if the other parent is seeking a change, I can counsel you with the goal of resolving any conflict you may have about the existing arrangement.
- If the paternity of your child or someone who you believe to be your child has not been established, a paternity determination is an important step toward getting child custody and/or visitation.
Florida law uses the term "time-sharing" to refer to child custody and visitation. Generally, a time-sharing settlement or order will designate one parent the "primary residential parent." The secondary residential or non-residential parent will usually be given specific visitation rights and be required to pay some amount of child support.
