Know your options in family law court

| Jul 12, 2018 | family law |

No one in Florida looks forward to a family law court proceeding, but these can be some of the most important events in a person’s life. From divorce and child support to paternity actions and child custody disputes, the decisions that are made in these proceedings can have a profound impact on a Florida resident’s life.

That is why, no matter what type of issue you are facing, it is important to fully understand your options in family law court. For instance, a divorce can be a type of overarching proceeding that includes several subsets of issues, such as property division, child custody and child support. However, each of these issues is also interlinked as well. A person may make some concessions when it comes to property division to achieve the desired outcome when it comes to child support, for example.

Each case in family law court is unique and, as a result, so too will be the results of each case. If issues can be resolved via out-of-court negotiations or mediation, the family law court may just act as a “rubber stamp” on the decisions that the family makes. But, if a case is fairly contentious, with each side entrenched in their own positions, the court will need to make the tough decisions.

At our law firm, we do our best to make sure that our clients are fully aware of their options when it comes to family law court proceedings. By doing so, we hope our clients will be able to make sound choices. For more information about how our law firm might be able to help with your family law case, please visit our website.
