What is a Florida family law attorney?

A family law attorney is an attorney that accepts cases involving dissolution of marriage (divorce), equitable distribution, paternity and child support issues, spousal support, alimony, time-sharing (child custody), domestic violence, juvenile law, step-parent adoption and related issues. All attorneys who have passed a state's bar exam are licensed to accept family law cases; however, not every attorney has the same level of experience and training in handling family law matters. You can think of it like this - every licensed physician can treat you for a cold but would you want to go to a general practice, family doctor if you need heart surgery? Probably not!

For many attorneys, family law cases compromise only a small portion of the cases they accept and work they perform. Our office is different in that the only type of cases that we accept is family law cases. In addition, our family law attorneys attend training on Florida family law topics on an annual basis and consistently stay informed when there are changes in Florida family law cases. We truly are Florida family law attorneys!

Our office accepts Florida family law cases including dissolution of marriage (divorce), equitable distribution, spousal support, alimony, paternity, child support, time-sharing (child custody), juvenile law cases, and related matters in Miami-Dade County, Broward County and Monroe County. Our law firm accepts Florida family law cases from other counties on a case-by-case basis.
