Marital and Family Law covers legal issues relating to a marriage, divorce, separations, unwed partners, child related issues, etc... These legal issues address areas of law that may arise prior to a marriage, during a marriage, after a marriage has ended, or domestic issues in the absence of marriage.
Common marital and family law issues include, but are not limited to:
Since family law may involve many different issues, the court will consider each specific legal issue on it's own merits unless family law issues directly correspond with other family law matters.
Each family law issue that is to be resolved may have specific criteria that the court will consider outlined by Florida Statutes, and/or Federal Law.
Depending upon the specific issues at hand the court may have to consider the length of the marriage, the income of both spouses, factors that relate to the best interest of minor children, paternity issues, and any other factors that may relate to a family law dispute.
The court will attempt to make all rulings in what they consider to be a fair and reasonable resolution based on the arguments or facts that are presented to the court in the appropriate window provided all parties involved.
Your attorney will ensure your legal rights are protected, that you are provided the best opportunity to amicably resolve issues of contention relating to the family law issues or disputes prior to scheduled hearings, and present your arguments to the court for any issues that cannot be amicably resolved prior to scheduled hearings.
If allegations of misconduct arise that may affect the courts decisions, your attorney will fight to either prove or disprove the validity of said allegations.
In a nutshell, your attorney will fight for your rights and legal needs relating to a family law issues prior to a marriage, during the course of a marriage, after a marriage has been finalized, and in the absence of a legal marriage from start to finish.
