Vigorously Serving Clients in Melbourne and Brevard County
We represent clients who are married as well as clients who are not married in child custody matters. Under Florida law, once paternity is established and a parenting plan is in place, unmarried parents have the same custody rights as parents who are married.
In many situations, custody and visitation disagreements can be resolved in negotiation or through mediation. When these avenues do not lead to a parenting plan you can accept, we have no reluctance to go to trial. In the courtroom, we will aggressively battle for your family to accomplish a successful resolution of custody/time-sharing issues.
We also assist with modifications to custody agreements and with relocation issues.
