Family Law Attorney Serving Pembroke Pines, Miramar, and the Surrounding Florida Areas
Family law encompasses the rules and regulations that govern your family. When you are in the midst of a divorce, family law becomes essential to establishing the future of your family. If you have children, and custody is an issue, only a qualified family attorney such as Attorney Winsor Daniel Jr. can help you work through the issues of your divorce.
Legally dividing property, and establishing custody of children can get complicated quickly. Although a divorcing couple may start out as amicable, when a party doesn’t get what they want, the issues can become muddled. As you try to settle your divorce without an attorney on your side, you will soon understand just how complicated this process can become.
Several types of custody are an option. You can share joint legal and physical custody, one party can have sole legal and physical custody, or one party can have full physical custody while you share legal custody. How custody is arranged will depend on the agreement of both parties, your ability to work together, and what is in the best interests of the children in question. It is best to come up with a custody arrangement that works for everyone without the need for a judge to make the decision for you.
Child and Spousal Support
If you are supposed to receive child support, but your former spouse hasn’t been paying, you have options. If your former spouse is working, and simply refusing to pay you support, you can file a motion for contempt of court. While you may not want to go the legal route to receive child support, you are entitled to the support in order to help raise your children. When it comes to supporting your children, both parents are legally responsible for paying for their needs, regardless of the child custody arrangement.
When you need divorce representation, or you are battling an ex for child custody or child support, the law office of Attorney Winsor Daniel Jr. has the experience you need to get you through this difficult time in your life.
