The establishment of legal paternity is essential for both fathers and mothers of children born outside of marriage.
For mothers, paternity is necessary to establish child support so that you can provide for your child throughout their childhood.
For fathers, paternity is required for you to establish parental rights. Without legal paternity, you will have no right to see your children or share in decision making for their futures. Read more about paternity...
Child custody, or "timesharing" as it's called in Florida law is established by the family courts as part of a parenting plan. In addition to timesharing, the parenting plan will establish parental responsibility - determining whether either or both of the parents have decision-making authority over the child.
Child custody may also directly affect the amount of child support you receive or pay under Florida law. Read more about child custody...
Parents often ask how they can obtain sole custody of their children. While sole custody is not favored under Florida law, it is possible under specific circumstances. Our family attorneys can advise you about sole custody and petition the family court to grant sole custody if your circumstances qualify. Read more about sole custody...
As circumstances change, sometimes old child support orders are no longer adequate or fair for the mother, the father, or both. Our Orlando family attorneys can petition the court to modify a previous child support order to reflect today's circumstances.
Whether jobs, custody arrangements, or other relevant circumstances have changed. Contact our family court lawyers to discuss whether you may qualify for a child support modification. Read more about child support modification...
If things have changed since your parenting plan was established, a child custody modification may establish a more fair and appropriate timesharing arrangement that reflects today's circumstances and the best interest of your children. Our Orlando child custody attorneys can petition the court to modify it's previous order.
Modifying child custody may decrease your child support obligation or increase the child support you receive based on the new timesharing schedule. If one parent isn't properly exercising timesharing under the parenting plan, modifying it to reflect the actual timesharing may also allow for a child support modification in favor of the parent exercising more timesharing than originally anticipated. Read more about child custody modification...

This process is to protect the rights of the noncustodial parent and the best interest of the children. If you are seeking to relocate, our attorneys can help you obtain court approval. If you have received notice of intent to relocate from your child's other parent, then our family lawyers will help you respond and protect your rights. Read more about child relocation...
