Melbourne Child Custody Lawyer

Under Florida law, any custody arrangement must consider the best interests of the child first. Ideally, the courts prefer joint custody so parents spend equal time with the child and have an equal say in decisions made on the child's behalf. Very few families are able to agree on a joint custody arrangement, however, and establishing a workable parenting plan can be very difficult.

Child Custody Modifications And Enforcement

If circumstances change after a custody order has been established, we can also help you seek a modification of the order. Situations where a modification may be appropriate include a change in work schedules or if the child is living in an unsafe environment. We can also help you with enforcement of an order if the other parent fails to accommodate its requirements.
