There is no family that is completely free from conflict; however, there are situations when a family dispute requires legal intervention.
At Griffin Family Law, our practice is dedicated to helping clients find solutions beyond the four walls of their homes while protecting the most important relationships in their life. Even though family law is commonly associated with divorce exclusively, it actually encompasses all types of concerns that span from fathers’ rights and paternity to domestic violence and more.
No matter the issues that your family is facing, one of the best decisions you can make to help protect your interests and the interests of your family is to consult with our experienced and compassionate family law attorney.
Our Jacksonville Beach family law attorney can provide services for all types of families in and around the area. We will help you achieve the solutions needed for your situation and family.
How Our Jacksonville Beach Family Law Attorney Can Help with Your Situation
We handle an array of different family law matters. Some of the types of cases we can help with include:
- Separation agreements
- Child support
- Spousal support or alimony
- Timesharing and parental responsibility
- Domestic violence
- Paternity disputes
- Father’s rights
- Division of property
We understand that no two families are alike, and because of that, we don’t offer cookie-cutter solutions. Instead, we will develop a custom solution that addresses your needs and situation.
For example, during a divorce, we often encourage our clients to reduce conflicts by achieving a negotiated solution. When it comes to issues like timesharing, child support, parental responsibility, and spousal support that can’t be resolved amicably, we will fight aggressively to help protect your interests in court.
Our Jacksonville Beach attorney works with clients from all types of families and all walks of life. We have the skills and ability to handle any case, including high-net-worth divorces. Because Florida is home to many military institutions, we also understand the complicated issues related to military families and family law. For example, military divorce is much more complex than a civilian divorce. We understand how these processes work and can ensure that your interests are protected in any case.
Division of Marital Property in Jacksonville Beach
One of the main issues that must be resolved in any Florida divorce is the division of your marital property. This includes everything like retirement accounts, business interests, investments, debts, savings, real estate, and personal property.
In the state of Florida, all marital property must be divided based on the equitable distribution rules established in the state. What many people do not realize is that this doesn’t mean it is a 50-50 split. Instead, it means that assets will be divided in a fair and reasonable manner.
Even though this seems simple and straightforward, dividing marital property is a contentious issue in most divorce cases and something that is commonly litigated when representing high net-worth cases of divorce. When you work with Griffin Family Law, you can have confidence that your interests will be protected at every turn.
The Divorce Mediation Process
Mediation is a type of dispute resolution that is an alternative to other options. It is a much more civil and less costly way to end your marriage.
If you choose mediation, it means you will work with a neutral third party called a mediator. The role of the mediator is to help guide you through the process of making decisions related to their divorce. It’s worth noting that mediators cannot provide you with legal advice, which is why consulting with Griffin Family Law is such a good idea. We can ensure your interests are protected even during the mediation process.
Same-Sex Family Law Matters
While marriage equality has been legal in Florida since 2015, the issues of same-sex divorce are ones that must be addressed from time to time. We can handle the unique challenges of same-sex family issues and help ensure our client’s interests are protected, no matter the situation they are in.
