Our Family Law Practice Areas

With multiple Florida Bar board-certified Family Law attorneys on hand, we routinely work with clients in areas that include these: 


In Florida family law, there are several important aspects to consider when going through a divorce.

  • Property division: Florida follows the principle of equitable distribution, which means that marital assets and liabilities are to be divided fairly, though not necessarily equally. 
  • Child support and custody: In Florida, the best interests of the child must guide decisions regarding custody, visitation, and financial support.
  • Spousal support: The purpose of spousal support (alimony) is to address any significant disparities in income and financial resources between the spouses. 


After a divorce is finalized, circumstances may change, requiring modifications to certain aspects of the divorce decree. Common reasons for seeking modifications include: 

  • Changes in income
  • Relocation
  • Changes in the needs or circumstances of the children

To modify child custody, child support, or spousal support agreements, the party seeking the modification must prove that there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the original order was issued.
