Practice Areas

Going through a divorce can be tough on adults, but it can be a traumatizing event for young children. Family Law issues require a resolution that is best for all parties involved. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Theodore H. Enfield understand these difficult issues and use their legal acumen to reach the best outcome in every case.

Auto Accidents

The Law Offices of Theodore H. Enfield, P.A. focuses in part on the legal practice area surrounding personal injury. These include personal injuries from various accidents, like those sustained in a Florida automobile accident. In each state, the personal injury laws surrounding car accidents differ slightly.

Alimony

In a proceeding for legal separation in Florida, the court may grant alimony to either party. Before you sign any documents, or make a verbal agreement to your partner, consult an experienced alimony lawyer. Theodore Enfield has more than 35 years of experience in family law and divorce issues, including spousal support (alimony), and understands the many facets of creating and modifying spousal support agreements.

Annulment

There are two main avenues for terminating a marriage: annulment or dissolution. When you find that your marriage is irreparably damaged or is not valid, there are alternatives to divorce and other steps you can take to end the relationship.

Business & Divorce

Divorces can be nasty. Feelings of sadness, depression, anger and frustration may be heightened among families. You may be concerned about your future. How will you begin a new life without your life partner? Where did you go wrong? Why is this happening to you?

Child Custody

When two parents get divorced, there is much more at stake than who will take possession of the family car. The fate of the most innocent and dependent family members, the children, has to be decided — and usually, the only neutral and fair way to do so is through the court system.

Child Custody Evaluations

While some spouses are able to create and/or agree to a child custody and/or parenting plan, others experience much significant challenges. In such case, participation in a child custody evaluation may be necessary and beneficial. Miami child custody lawyers can help you understand everything there is to know about child custody evaluations in Florida.

Child Support

If you are divorcing with children, then it is likely you will need a child support plan. In Florida, there are certain guidelines by which a court follows to calculate child support. Although it may seem that figuring out what amount of child support is owed by a party is fairly simple, it can in fact be very complicated.

Contempt Cases

After a lengthy divorce, you should rightfully expect that your spouse will adhere to the demands set forth by a Florida court. When your spouse does not, there are steps that you can take to ensure that he/she does.

Dissolution of Marriage

In Florida, legal separation, or divorce, is termed dissolution of marriage. Believe it or not, it can be difficult to secure a certificate of dissolution of marriage as you must provide legal evidence in a circuit court that the marriage is irrevocably broken.

Divorce

Divorce is difficult enough without going into it unprepared. If you think a divorce is in your future, there are several things you can do in Florida to protect your financial interests and your family relationships.

Doctor's Divorce

It is well-known that doctors (and medical professionals as a whole) put forth a lot of studying, time, effort and energy toward their work in order to restore and heal bodies. What many people do not know is that (perhaps due to their non-traditional schedules and stress), doctors have some of the highest rates and likelihoods for divorce.

Domestic Violence

Theodore H. Enfield, P.A., defends persons arrested and charged with domestic violence. In addition, he also assists in injunctions against domestic violence and protects against domestic violence.

Equal Distribution

Couples who divorce are sometimes faced with the challenge of dividing the assets and debts that accumulated during the marriage. A prenuptial agreement outlines how property in divorce should be divided in the event of a divorce or legal separation; however, many couples forego a prenuptial agreement. When this happens, divorce lawyers are needed to ensure that the property, assets and debts of the marriage are distributed equally.

Establishing Paternity

One of the most important tasks that unmarried couples must do when they have a baby is to establish paternity. Paternity establishment holds numerous advantages for both parents and the child.

Modification of Alimony

Although alimony agreements set by a court are final, it is understandable that a person's life and situation can change. When this happens, a modification of alimony may be necessary.

Parenting Plans

In order to prevent as much instability as possible, it is best that parents rely on a parenting plan so that the child will have a structured childhood and a sense of belonging after a divorce. At the Law Offices of Theodore H. Enfield, our divorce lawyers in Miami can help you create a parenting plan that protects and ensures the best interest of your child.

Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement, sometimes referred to as a prenup, is a legally binding contract that’s created and agreed upon by two people prior to getting married. In the agreement, the couple will address issues about property purchased during the marriage and money earned by each party during the marriage.

Slip & Falls

At The Law Offices of Theodore H. Enfield, P.A., our attorneys understand the difficulties presented by slip and fall lawsuits and have the resources needed to address these issues appropriately. Our ability to prove liability in slip and fall cases has led to many successful settlements and verdicts.

Types of Child Custody

Generally, child custody agreements are formed in conjunction with a parenting plan agreement, such as a 50/50 parenting plan, but in some cases, it is important to establish the physical and legal custody of the child.

Workers’ Compensation

If you were injured on the job, it may sound like filling out a workers’ compensation claim and collecting for your injuries should be an easy task. For minor injuries, it might be. For anything major, you really need a workers’ compensation attorney to assist you.
