Orlando Child Custody Attorney

Florida divorce law favors joint custody of children in marriage dissolution and attempts to balance the interest of all parties involved. Family court judges have become enlightened regarding the importance of both parents maintaining a key role in their children’s lives following divorce whenever possible.

Nevertheless, child custody remains one of the more contentious aspects of a divorce. Both parents are determined to protect their relationship with their children. Often, each parent suspects the other of wanting to get the upper hand in this area.

We help with modifications and enforcement issues. If you have an existing child custody divorce decree that no longer works, or if your spouse is not following through with a court-approved custody plan, we can help. We make sure your rights are protected regarding modifications or enforcement matters.

At The Davies Law Firm, LLC, in Orlando, Florida, we use our solutions-oriented approach to help you work through custody and shared parenting options during negotiations. If they are able to reach agreement without going to court, both parents keep more control over the critical decisions that will shape their post-divorce lives with their children.
