Family Law includes:
Child Custody, Time-Sharing and Visitation
Working out a custody agreement that is in the best interest of your child can be difficult work. Having one of our attorneys on hand can help make this emotional process easier for you and guarantee your rights are represented.
If you are retaining sole custody of your child, your partner can be required by some custody agreements to pay child support for the care of that child. If you are having trouble collecting child support from your ex, contact us to help you get what’s owed you.
If you and your partner have decided to dissolve your marriage, it can be a very difficult and stressful situation. Having one of our attorneys on your side as an objective party can make sure that your rights and best interests are protected.
Modifications of Child Support & Time-Sharing
If your current custody agreement is not working, contact one of our attorneys. We will help lead you through the steps of having that agreement changed to better benefit all parties, including your child.
Questions of paternity can be very delicate and difficult to deal with. If you’re involved in a paternity suit, contact one of our attorneys and have them help walk you through the case.
Alimony, Spousal Support and Modification
When a marriage dissolves one very common issue is alimony, also referred to as spousal support, who has to pay it and who receiver it. The state of Florida has very specific laws regarding spousal support, how long it is paid and modification of existing orders.
Pre-nuptial agreements are very common in society today. Whether or not you have a significant amount of assets is irrelevant as it is always a good idea to protect yourself legally. The Orlando family law lawyers can help with these cases.
During a divorce, many times spouses may try to hide money in an effort to not have to pay child support or spousal support. Florida couples who are divorcing have the right to have any businesses owned valued as part of the divorce settlement. Our divorce attorneys have a wealth of experience handling business valuation scenarios.
Sometimes getting married is a mistake. This can be for several reasons. Our family law attorneys also help those who are seeking annulments in the state of Florida.
Division Of Marital Assets And Marital Debt
Florida is an equitable distribution state meaning that during a divorce all marital property is divided equally, or as close to equally as possible. Florida does have laws regarding non-marital property. This type of property is not subject to Florida division of property and equitable distribution laws. An experienced Orange County divorce attorney will help you navigate through the complex Florida family law system in an effort to protect your rights and financial interests.
Many Orange County, Florida fathers seem to think that the Florida family law system favors the mothers. This is a misconception as the Florida family law legal system does what is best for the child. Sometimes that may include more rights given to the mother but it may only be for a certain period of time. An example of this is if the father has an alcohol or drug problem they may have minimal custody and visitation rights until they get clean and or sober, or at least demonstrate a desire to get clean and or sober. Also, many fathers are significantly more involved in their child’s lives compared to males a decade or more ago.
Frequently in a divorce the grandparents may feel the pain of not being a part of their grandchild’s lives. Under Florida law grandparents have rights just as a parent does.
Termination Of Parental Rights
For various reasons one parent or another may want to give up their legal parental rights. The family law attorneys at Lyons Law can help with this as they can other family law issues.
Military Divorce & Family Law
The state of Florida has a very strong military presence with Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the state. Military members have very unique family law rights that civilians do not have. These rights have to do with being deployed or stationed outside of the U.S. but their child, family and or spouses are stateside.
In subsequent marriages it is very common for a stepparent to take on the role of the biological parent. When these marriages dissolve there can be a void left if the stepparent was close to their stepchild or stepchildren. In cases such as these it may make sense for the stepparent to consult with a family law lawyer who has experience handling stepparent rights cases in Florida.
For some people, whether they are single or a couple, adoption seems like a viable option. Adoption can be a very magnanimous act where they just want to help a child. Adoption may also make sense for those who cannot have children themselves. Adoption is a very complex legal procedure and requires the help of a family law attorney handling adoptions.
