The Importance of a Family Law Attorney Who Cares
No two divorces are the same, and the matters of family law are exceptionally personal areas that can prove difficult both emotionally and mentally for those involved. Because a divorce, annulment or domestic violence case involves the entire family, clients often feel overwhelmed, confused and angry.
Finding the right divorce and family law attorney can help ease the stress and frustration during a legal matter. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Theodore H. Enfield, P.A., understand these issues and try to work towards a favorable outcome for all parties involved, especially during a divorce or annulment in Boca Raton, FL. Whether you children are still young or have grown and moved away, hearing that their parents are moving on can be devastating. It is important that you obtain legal guidance from an attorney who can help keep your family together even if you and your spouse have drifted apart. An experienced annulment lawyer can help you get a court-granted annulment quickly with a lesser chance of having your request denied.
When it comes to family issues, experience matters.
The decision to file for a divorce or annulment in Palm Beach County, FL is not one that is usually made lightly. Many people worry they will lose their houses to their spouses, that they will not be able to afford child support or alimony, or that they could lose other assets during a divorce. Worse yet, some may be held liable for debts and other risks that a spouse has taken on.
Before you act, call a Boca Raton, FL divorce lawyer who can advise you on the proper procedures to safeguard your earnings and assets. This can include your retirement funds and pension plans, which can be labeled as community property and therefore shared with spouses.
Our attorneys can help you draw up plans for the equal distribution of marital assets and liabilities, and even work toward an agreeable spousal support or child support plan. Divorce is never easy, but when parties are willing to work together for the well-being of their children, and even the other party, the process can often go more smoothly and end more quickly.
Alimony & Child Support Lawyers in South Florida
In Florida, there are several types of alimony that can be awarded. Alimony, or spousal support, is generally paid by one party to the other party, but it is not governed by gender. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all areas of spousal support, including:
- Bridge the Gap Alimony
- Rehabilitative Alimony
- Durational Alimony
There are a few factors that are considered when a court is awarding spousal support. These include the length of duration of a marriage, the standard of living that has been established during the marriage, the physical and emotional condition of the party, and the responsibilities of each party regarding minor children.
Alimony decisions are based on many factors and the specific situations of a divorce or annulment. Before you sign any papers, consult with an alimony attorney whom you can trust.
Child support determinations are often much more difficult and lengthy than the alimony procedure. Findings of fact regarding each party’s incomes are made by the court, and financial affidavits are filed. These alone can take a long period of time as the courts will want to be thorough in any investigation.
In some child support cases in Boca Raton, FL, modifications of support can be made. This is determined on a case-by-case basis, so you need a divorce lawyer who is experienced in all the nuances and statutes of Florida family law. Call our office today for a free phone consultation.
Child Custody Lawyer in Boca Raton, FL
Child custody is one of the scariest aspects for all parties involved in a divorce, separation or annulment. Children often wonder if they will be left homeless, or if one parent gains custody, a child might assume he or she is unwanted by the other parent. These are confusing times for children of all ages.
Child custody can be a difficult time for parents, too, especially when both parties want custody. Temporary custody, permanent custody and timesharing should all be discussed with your divorce attorney as early as possible so that any changes can be made before you file for divorce. This might include becoming more involved with your children or taking on more responsibilities so that the courts see you as the primary caregiver.
Family law attorney Theodore Enfield is experienced in the many factors that courts consider when determining child custody. For ethical and trustworthy legal advice, call our office to discuss your child custody and family negotiation case.
