Family law includes 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 & Modification. 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 an 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 family law attorney as soon as you receive an Order to preserve your appellate remedies.

Handling All Aspects Of Divorce
- High-Asset Divorce. Clients with a high net worth or extensive assets encounter unique challenges in a divorce. It is imperative to deal proactively with all property, business, and tax issues — including securing accurate business valuations and helping you plan financially for life after divorce.
- High-Conflict Divorce. While all divorce cases involve some degree of conflict, certain cases fall into the category of “high-conflict” divorce. Our attorneys know how to handle best aggressive spouses, spouses who hide assets or who incur massive debt, and spouses who use the children as pawns. Our expertise in this area allows us to quickly reign in the unruly spouse and recommend other professionals, like forensic accountants, mental health counselors, and parenting coordinators.
- Collaborative Divorce. Our Family Law attorneys are trained in the collaborative process. The collaborative process is unique because the parties work together with a “team” of professionals to resolve their issues and dissolve their marriage amicably.
