Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests
Children are the most important consideration of any divorce. With this in mind, Florida has implemented a number of laws to ensure that their interests are prioritized when parents part ways. Nevertheless, it is usually advantageous when parents can agree on matters affecting their children — child support, child custody and so on — before the courts become involved.
We can help. Drawing on more than 18 years of experience in the field of family law, McGinnis Law Firm, P.A., understands the complexities involved in divorce. We are adept at helping spouses find resolutions that benefit all family members — our founding attorney, Wendy K. McGinnis, has been certified as a mediator by the Florida Supreme Court. Nevertheless, in situations where accord cannot be reached, our firm will be prepared to assert our clients’ interests and rights in court.
A Full Array Of Legal Support
Our firm offers legal support for a full array of issues that affect your children, including:
- Custody and Parental Responsibility — Having a stable household is essential for a child, but in some cases it is best for parents to share custody as well as decision-making. We can help ensure your parental rights are heeded.
- Visitation and time sharing — Our firm assists both mothers and fathers with time-sharing arrangements that work to the benefit of everyone involved.
- Child support — Both parents have an obligation to support the upbringing of their child(ren). We can help make sure such obligations are met.
- Paternity — Paternity is an increasingly crucial legal issue. We assist men seeking to assert their parental rights as well as mothers seeking to obtain support from a child’s biological father.
- Adoption — We offer assistance to stepparents, grandparents and other close relations looking to adopt.
