Attorney Megan Lyons is an advocate and believer in holistic healing through meditation, yoga, art, and other forms of creative expression.  Her involvement in local, spiritual, and holistic organizations; specifically the Sarasota Center of Light and the Siesta Key Healing Vortex Meditation Group, has given her a unique perspective to offer clients who are also suffering from the loss of a relationship, their homes or are in a state of despair due to the substantial stress that legal problems can present in life.

She will be offering workshops and retreats which focus on healing from relationships, post-divorce, recognizing the red flags of insidious emotional and psychological abuse, and how to heal from that profound trauma.  Her ultimate goal is to spread awareness of the pervasive nature of narcissism and narcissistic abuse in today’s society and how the effects of such covert abuse can severely damage a victim of pathological torment.

Family Law Attorneys in Sarasota, FL

The state of Florida’s legal system regarding family law involves each stage of the case being handled separately. Orange County, Florida residents enduring a divorce in Orlando, Florida may have to face several different hearings for each issue regarding your case. Common Florida family law issues are child support, custody & visitation, division of property/assets and spousal support (alimony). Making sure this sometimes complicated family law system continues to move forward is one of our primary priorities as your family law lawyer.

Child Custody and Child Support Issues in Sarasota County

In many cases, Florida law requires parents to enter into mediation on questions regarding child support issues prior to the case going before a judge. Having a lawyer who knows how to effectively negotiate for you in mediation is very advantageous. Decisions about your future, especially with regards to your children to be determined by the final word of a judge, without proper legal representation, may not be in your best interest.

Parents typically have a minimal desire to drag their children through long, painful and tedious Florida divorce proceedings. When it comes to cases surrounding child support and child visitation, our Sarasota family law attorneys are focused on preserving your parental rights while simultaneously attempting to expedite resolution so that you, and your child, can move forward.

Issues Regarding Property Division and Spousal Support In Sarasota Florida

Knowing how and when to petition the court on questions of property division is imperative in a Florida family law case. Failing to petition when appropriate could make you vulnerable losing rights you may not be aware of. Our family law attorneys understand how emotionally charged people can be when it comes to money and spousal support. Conflicts over alimony frequently become the most heated parts of a Florida divorce.

Our Bradenton family law lawyers & Sarasota family law attorneys will remain laser focused on what we are confident the judge will grant you if the case goes all the way to trial. From there we will steer the negotiation toward a settlement that is at least that good or better for you. We believe that the deal we negotiate for you is often better for you because it is within your own control, while saving you emotional and psychological pain, as well as money, in the end.
