Factors to Consider in Choosing a Family Lawyer

The decision on whom to work with is something our clients consider seriously. The factors that need to be considered in choosing a family lawyer include these: 

Do They Know the Law?

It seems like an obvious point, but it has to be emphasized how much of law in any field is determined by an attorney’s grasp on nuanced detail. That kind of grasp doesn’t come overnight. It comes through experience and focus. We have Tampa family law attorneys who have been doing this for over 72 years. Their credentials speak for themselves, as does their record. 

Do They Know How to Relate to People?

Law matters can be personally difficult, and it’s important that a lawyer have empathy for what their clients are going through. Making a personal connection is something we take pride in at Sessums Law Group, P.A. 

What Do Their Clients Say About Them?

We’re honored by the reviews that our clients have given us. We hope to earn your trust too. 

What’s Their Record?

When all is said and done, we lawyers have a job to do—produce results that are satisfactory to our clients. Even beyond all the nice things our clients have said about us, we still have an extensive record of results. 

Our Family Law Practice Areas

Divorce is a difficult process that involves several components. We work with clients on all attendant issues, as well as several other areas of family law. Our services include the following: 

  • Alimony: Spousal support can be granted if one party lacks the ability to be self-supporting. Our Tampa family lawyers will advise you on the numerous factors that judges take into account in an alimony case.
  • Child custody: We work to establish fair custody arrangements so that children can grow up in a healthy environment and maintain relationships with both parents whenever possible.
  • Visitation and parental rights:  The court usually awards regular visitation to a non-custodial parent, if contact is in the best interest of the child. We work to protect our clients’ parental rights.
  • Child support: Our firm represents clients when conflicts arise relating to the establishment, modification, or enforcement of child support.
  • Domestic violence: We assist victims in getting protective orders, and we represent persons targeted by such orders, protecting their due process rights, and working toward a fair resolution.
  • Marital agreements: We help clients who are engaged or married protect their property rights by negotiating, drafting, and reviewing both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
  • Appeals: Appellate law is unique in itself, and lawyers need to have a grasp on the issues that can make a difference on appeal. We do. 
  • Legal separation: If you are not ready or able to get divorced, we can help you file for a legal separation, settling all the same issues you would with a final divorce.
  • Relocation: Child custody disputes can be intense when a custodial parent seeks to relocate at a distance that burdens the other parent’s visitation rights. We work to help couples resolve their disagreements. 
  • Post-divorce modification: When circumstances in your life change substantially, it may be time to ask the court to modify aspects of the original divorce settlement. 
  • Enforcement: When one spouse fails to live up to their legal obligations, we can help the other spouse in an effort to secure the appropriate remedy. 
  • Paternity: We represent single mothers, putative fathers, and children in actions to establish paternity for purposes of child support, child custody and visitation, and inheritance.
  • Name changes:  We help clients legally change their names after a divorce or when paternity has been established.
