Family Law FAQ
Legal matters involving your family can be emotionally stressful – in part because many people are unfamiliar with the legal process. It is important to consult with an experienced family law lawyer in Seminole right away if you face an issue regarding your children or marriage. Below are some family law FAQ we can answer.
Do I need a lawyer for a divorce?
Everyone has the right to handle their own divorce, though it is not often recommended. Divorce involves resolving many complex legal issues, including:
- The division of marital property, assets, and debts
- Spousal support determinations
- Time-sharing and decision-making responsibilities for your child (child custody)
- Child support determinations
All of these matters must be resolved in accordance with Florida law before your divorce can be finalized. Disputes can often arise between spouses during divorce, even if they initially seemed to agree. It is wise to have the guidance of a skilled divorce attorney during this process.
Can an attorney help with child-related matters?

- Parenting plans
- Time-sharing and decision-making determinations
- Child support

When a legal matter involves your child, you want an attorney fighting to protect your parental rights.
Does every family law case go to court?
While some divorce and child-related cases may require a trial, there are many ways to resolve these matters out of court and save you time, money, and stress. The right lawyer will know how to use negotiation, mediation, and other legal strategies to resolve your case as efficiently as possible while still protecting your rights.
