Punta Gorda Child Support Attorneys Protecting The Best Interests Of Your Child
Child custody attorneys Dennis R. Wallace II and Kathryn Wallace offer more than a decade of legal experience helping both men and women with highly emotional family issues involving children.
Throughout our years serving the communities of Punta Gorda, Fort Myers and surrounding cities, our professionals have helped hundreds of families effectively resolve their cases involving:
- Child custody (timesharing): Under Florida law, child custody is based on the best interests of the children. Florida courts are now focusing on 50-50 split when it comes to awarding parenting time to each parent. Our lawyers recognize that no two families are alike. We are prepared to help you pursue your custody goals while always keeping the best interests of your child(ren) in mind.
- Child Visitation (parenting plans): Parenting plans are important because they allow parents to spend valuable time with their children, helping the relationship grow even after divorce. While state courts are in favor of the idea that parenting time should be divided equally, we will work toward negotiating a parenting plan that allows you the most time as legally possible with your child(ren).
- Child support: Child support payments are governed by Florida Child Support Guidelines. The guidelines consider several factors when calculating payments, such as financial information pertaining to each parent and the amount of time the child(ren) spend with each parent. While these guidelines are typically rigid, our professionals can help you ensure that the judge is taking all extenuating circumstances into consideration.
