Family Law FAQs

Our family law attorneys in Palm Beach have experience handling a large variety of cases that have a lasting impact on families. Every client receives the personalized attention they deserve, and we do everything we can to protect their best interests.


Divorces are tough on everyone in the family. Uncontested divorces may go more smoothly, but contested divorces can quickly devolve into finger-pointing and a long, drawn-out, emotional legal process. Regardless of the nature of your divorce, you need a divorce lawyer in Palm Beach with the experience to protect your interests, advocate for your position, negotiate with the other side, and ensure critical issues are resolved with as little conflict as possible. 

We have the experience to handle high-net-worth divorces and help couples divide significant properties, stocks, retirement accounts, and other assets. Florida is an equitable distribution state, so having an attorney represent your interests is critical.

Child Custody and Visitation Agreements

Florida courts must determine what’s in the child’s best interests when deciding custody and visitation matters. Florida requires divorcing couples to submit a parenting plan that keeps both parents involved in their children’s lives. Our Florida child custody attorneys have significant experience helping parents develop plans courts will approve, allowing families to move forward without needless conflict.

Child Support Calculations and Modifications

Florida law requires that both parents financially support the child. The state has very specific guidelines regarding child support payments, weighing factors such as the parents’ financial capabilities and the children’s needs. These guidelines ensure that the amount parents must pay is fair while protecting the child’s best interests. Our child support attorneys can help you determine a fair payment schedule and assist you with making any necessary modifications as your child’s needs evolve.

Alimony or Spousal Support

Judges in Florida can grant several types of alimony, also known as spousal support. Bridge-the-gap alimony can last up to two years and helps one spouse transition to a single life. A judge can also order five-year rehabilitative alimony for spouses seeking educational or vocational training to become independent. Durational alimony is for a set period based on marriage length. The state abolished permanent alimony orders in July 2023. 

Our experienced Palm Beach family law attorneys can help you pursue fair alimony or limit payments based on your needs.


Florida law dictates that parents have equal rights to determine their children’s upbringing and must also share the costs of raising a child. In some cases, you may have to establish paternity to resolve custody and support issues. Our accomplished Palm Beach attorneys can help you if you wish to determine paternity or challenge it.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

People with significant resources going into a marriage may wish to have a prenuptial agreement to protect their assets in case of divorce. Couples can also sign postnuptial agreements to address changed circumstances during the marriage, such as inheritances acquired by a spouse. These documents can help the divorce process go much more smoothly. 

Our family law attorneys in Palm Beach can help you create prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that are fair to both parties and acceptable to a judge. We can also help if you seek to challenge the prenup’s enforceability or its terms.

Domestic Violence Matters

It’s critical to seek family law representation in Palm Beach if you or your children are victims of domestic violence. Our compassionate and skilled attorneys can help you pursue a protective order and take the first steps toward filing for divorce.


Florida law allows you to seek guardianship of children and adults who cannot care for themselves. You can seek limited guardianship to help someone take care of some of their needs while they maintain control of others. You may also pursue a plenary guardianship, giving you full control over someone else’s decisions. Our Florida guardianship attorneys can help you determine the best path forward and navigate any legal hurdles you may face, such as a challenge from another family member.


If the Department of Children and Families receives a complaint about your child’s care, you may face a dependency case. If the state determines your child is in danger, it can remove them from your home. You can attend a further hearing to determine whether the allegations against you hold enough merit to affect custody of your child.

Our dependency law attorneys understand how frightening it can be to go through a dependency hearing. We will protect your rights, advocate for you, and do everything we can to reduce the time your child is out of the home.


Every adoption case in Florida is different, and judges consider factors such as the adoptive parents’ emotional, financial, and physical health. The exact process differs depending on whether the child is an infant born in the United States, an adoption from foster care, or an international adoption. Other factors can also affect the proceedings, including whether the prospective adoptive parents are single, married, or grandparents.

Our skilled Florida adoption attorneys can help you determine the proper steps for the adoption you seek and guide you through the process so it goes as smoothly as possible.

Parental Responsibility

Parents must make hard choices regarding who will be responsible for decisions such as schooling, extracurricular activities, medical care, religion, and other factors that may evolve as their child ages. Florida law respects the rights of both parents and expects each to consult with the other regarding decisions that affect their child. Our parental responsibility attorneys can help you have a meaningful discussion with your spouse and develop a parenting plan that suits your needs and protects your child’s best interests.

Family law cases are complex, and it is essential to have an attorney with experience in the specific legal issues affecting your situation. Our Palm Beach family law attorneys use their combined experience in all aspects of family law to offer our clients the solid legal advocacy and support they deserve.
