High-Quality Representation in Complex Matters
Family law is an area of law that focuses solely on family matters and domestic relations. Family law lawyers practice focusing on representing clients through a divorce and the issues related to divorces such as the division of real estate properties, child custody and support, and alimony.
Family law does include more than just divorce. Our attorneys are experienced in handling cases involving:
- Spousal Support (Alimony). Whether you seek to receive or avoid paying spousal support, we can enforce your rights.
- Child Custody, Parenting Plans, & Timesharing. Protecting your children and your rights to your children.
- Child Support. The amount of child support you will pay or receive involves applying the child support guidelines according to Florida law. However, there can be variations in the amount based on certain specific factors. We have the experience to know the factors that impact the child support guideline amount and how and when to seek a deviation from the guideline amount.
- Enforcement & Alteration. After an order is entered in your case, there may arise issues with the other party following the Court’s order. Additionally, as situations change, current orders may need to be modified as a result. Knowing how to enforce order and what is required to have an order modified requires extensive knowledge in the field of divorce law, which our attorneys at Cobb Cole have.
- Paternity. Parents who have a child out-of-wedlock address timesharing and child support issues in a paternity action. A timesharing schedule and parenting plan must be established by a Court to protect the parent’s and the child’s rights.
- Pre-Marital (Prenup) & Post-Marital Agreements. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can act as an insurance policy to protect what matters to you most with proper planning. These agreements have specific requirements to be enforceable, and you should invest in an attorney that is proficient in drafting these complex contracts. At Cobb Cole, our family law practice and our estate planning team often work together to ensure all of the client’s assets are protected in the event of a divorce or untimely death.
- Relocation. If you wish to move and you have a child, you should consult with a knowledgeable family law attorney to determine if you are required to file a petition for relocation with the Court. Failure to file a petition, when required, may dramatically impact the outcome of a case.
- Family Law Appeals. If the Court enters an Order, there is a limited amount of time to file an appeal. Contact an experienced Daytona Beach family law attorney as soon as you receive an Order to preserve your appellate remedies.
After the divorce or annulment, both parties must agree on child custody, time-sharing arrangements, and child support. In Florida, depending on the circumstances, child custody can be ruled as sole custody of one parent, or it can be joint custody of both parents in accordance with an agreed timetable.
If one or both of the parents are unwilling or unable to properly take care of the children, the court can also make a legal decision to grant guardianship to the grandparents or legal family guardians. We don’t want you to feel alone. You can count on our family law and divorce lawyer’s to help you every step of the way.
