Skillfully Handling Family Legal Issues
The most high-profile family law issue is divorce. A great deal of our practice involves advising and representing clients on some or all of the family law matters that arise during or after a divorce.
These issues include:
- Child custody and visitation: If you and your spouse have children, you will need a parenting plan that reflects the children's best interests. This is not an opportunity to punish the other spouse; it is about ensuring that the children have the best possible care.
- Child support: Under Florida's child support formula, both parents’ incomes are used to determine the correct support amount. Determining income can be a key issue when it comes to child support.
- Spousal support/Alimony: The family courts may, in some cases, require that one spouse support the other temporarily or permanently, depending on the circumstances of the marriage.
- Equitable distribution: Property division in divorce can be complicated and is not always an even split. Florida courts adhere to principles of equitable distribution when dividing property at divorce.
In all of our family law cases involving children, the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher places the highest priority on the interests of those children. We will never let our clients forget that children must be at the center of all decisions affecting them.
