Take a Strategic Approach to Securing Your Parental Rights

Parenting and child custody rights are not based on a model, but on the individual circumstances of each family.  To a large extent, custody arrangements are based on work schedules, the relationships between each parent and the children, and ultimately focusing on the best interests of the children.  Our attorneys will take the time to understand your individual needs and goals so that we can prepare strategies tailored to accomplish your objectives.  We do not go into a court hearing, a negotiation, or a mediation without a plan for achieving our client's goals.

Tampa Child Custody Attorneys

The interests of your children, including their financial well-being, place of residence, and emotional stability, should be your primary concern during a divorce.  

You may even worry about losing the right to spend time with your children.  Our divorce and family law attorneys take a strategic and comprehensive approach to protecting your rights and providing for the best interests of your children during custody disputes.

Florida no longer supports awarding "custody" to one parent and "visitation" to the other. Courts are now required to establish a parenting plan that governs time-sharing with your children and determines parental responsibility.  We will focus on helping you create a parenting plan for your unique needs and situation.
