FAMILY LAW

 

Dealing with a family law issue can consume your entire life. Whether you deal with a divorce, paternity, child custody, spousal support, child support, or domestic violence, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the intricacies of the family law system. The attorneys at Broward Law Group, P.A. understand not only the law, but also the stresses and stakes involved in the case. Whether it is in your interest to litigate your case in front of the judge or come to a compromise, you need legal advice that is given considering your best interest. Instead of telling you what you want to hear, we are committed to give you the best legal advice and help you make the tough decisions and get the best result.

Going through a divorce is one of the hardest times in your life. It is a transition in life that requires a close attention to details and calculated decision making.A knowledgeable and honest advocate is essential. Our experienced lawyers understand the stresses that divorce can put on a family and are dedicated to minimize the emotional burden and cost during this difficult time.

Uncontested Divorce is a divorce where both spouses agree on everything that needs to be decided to finalize the divorce. That includes an agreement on the division of property or debt, and, if children are involved, the time-sharing with the children, and an understanding that the court will set child support under the Florida Child Support Guidelines. If you can resolve your marriage amicably, you can reduce the cost and time involved, and likely reduce the emotional stress associated with the divorce process.

Contested divorce is a divorce where the spouses cannot agree on one or more decisions regarding the dissolution of marriage, and the court, after hearing the evidence, has to make these decisions. Sometimes, using the help of a mediator can assist in resolving your and your spouse disagreement outside of court.

Whatever your particular circumstance, we will help you achieve fair distribution of marital assets. If children are involved, we will work with you to attain the best results for your children, assist in obtaining child support payments and help in the development of a parenting plan.

The one way to combat any future court hearings is by hiring our qualified and dedicated attorneys to draft a prenuptial agreement before you tie the knot with your loved one. Although we operate under the theory that you will live happily ever after, and may never need it, it is important to protect yourself, while providing for your loved one in the event you do not make it until death do you part. Our dedicated attorneys will ensure everyone is operating under full disclosure, so the terms of a separation are incredibly clear, and upheld in the court of law.

If you or your children have been harmed emotionally, physically, mentally or sexually, it is important that you contact a committed and understanding lawyer to ensure your safety going forward. We will stand beside you every step of the way to ensure that the person who hurt or threatened you is unable to do so again. We understand the hurt and confusion that exists in these cases, and we promise to be your support system going forward while providing actual solutions to keeping you out of harm’s way.

 

One of the most complex and sensitive aspect in a separation and divorce, arises when children are involved. Our law firm can help you achieve the best arrangement for you and your children.  As of 2008, Florida Law regarding children’s issues substantially changed. The terms “child custody,” “primary” or “secondary residential parent” have been eliminated from the statute. The relationship between the child and the parents is governed by a parenting plan, which governs the decisionmaking power of each parent regarding the child, and a contains a time-sharing schedule, which specifies the amount of time the child spends with each parent. 

When addressing issues of time sharing, the first concern is the best interests of the children. In most situations, that means creating a plan that gives both parents time with the children. There are certain instances, however, when co-parenting is not in  the best interest of the children.When two individuals are unable to decide on the division of their child’s time amicably, it may be necessary to involve the courts. Upon this occasion, it is important that you are represented by an attorney who excels in the field of family law. The attorneys at Broward Law Group, P.A. are able to deliver a strategic approach to the courts based on your needs and the child’s best interests.

Every parent is obligated to provide for his or her child. If the child resides with one parent the majority of the time, the other parent must provide monetary support. The calculation of the amount of child support is based on a number of financial factors, taking into account both parent’s income. Whether you are a single parent seeking child support or a parent ordered to pay child support, our family law attorneys can help to ensure that your children receive fair financial support corresponding to your income and the income of the other parent.

 

When the identity of the biological father is in question, having paternity rightfully established is important for the child, the mother, the biological father, and the presumed father or mother’s husband.. A mother, who has not established biological relationship between the father and her child may not receive child support payments or have anyone to help raise the child. A father who has not established his parental rights to a child and may be denied visitation rights and lose his ability to voice his opinions about the child’s upbringing. The mother can even give the child up for adoption without his consent. The attorneys at Broward Law Group will offer you legal guidance, assist in filing a paternity action or defend you against paternity action.

 

DEPENDENCY

If you are accused of child abuse or neglect, you can be assured the DCF will relentlessly pursue the allegations. This dependency process in Florida is extremely emotional  because it involves your children. The investigations, court dates, overworked and detached caseworkers, and court ordered programs can be overwhelming. At such times, you need a lawyer to competently guide you so your children come home as soon as possible.  Our attorneys have successfully defended hundreds of parents involved in the Florida dependency system and have helped countless families to come back together.

Even before the dependency court gets involved in your family’s life, it is important to call an experienced dependency attorney the first time you get a call or a visit from a Child Protection Investigator. Remember, prior to the courts getting involved, you have more options to possibly avoid the dependency court system. In a time of hardship, how  you interact and comply with the investigator can determine whether your children stay in your home and whether you get involved in the maze of the Florida dependency system. The guidance of empathetic and experienced attorneys at Broward Law Group, P.A. can be crucial  to the outcome of your case.

 

In Florida, if your child or children have been removed from your home, a court hearing, called a “shelter hearing,” is held within 24 hours. At this initial hearing the court decides whether to keep the children in protective custody, or return them to your home.  At this hearing the court also decides where to place the child or children and what type of visits you are entitled to have. If you have a relative or nonrelative who has been approved, your child may be placed with them, during the case, but this is not guaranteed. It is important to contact a lawyer to ensure that an attorney prepares you and iis by your side for the initial court date and throughout the entire process. 

 

If a protective investigator has determined that your child or children are at risk or being abused, abandoned or neglected, and that judicial intervention is necessary to ensure their safety, you will be involved with the dependency court. You will face multiple hearings in your dependency case, with the DCF alleging that you abused, abandoned, or neglected your child.
