The Scope of Family Law

Family law is essentially linked to marriage and divorce; it also concerns the sensitive legal areas of child abuse, neglect, and paternity. If you find that you are the center of a family law criminal charge, challenge, or dispute, it is imperative that you secure legal representation as soon as possible.

Attorney Coven offers services in all realms of the law, including:

  • Legal Separation and Divorce: The dissolution of a marriage can be emotionally charged and confusing. As a couple attempts to start a new life apart from each other, the parties can become contentious. Attorney Coven works very specifically with each of his clients in paving the way for a fair and equitable separation or divorce.
  • Alimony: Alimony, or spousal support,is often a controversial issue, and it is a very complicated legal area in Florida, which has six different types of spousal support. The criteria for each vary. It is important to have an experienced and skilled attorney when dealing with alimony.
  • Paternity Determination: In establishing paternity, a mother is able to secure the support that her child needs and deserves from his/her father. Paternity is established through DNA testing and is used to determine child support payments, custody and visitation rights, and other concerns related to the law and parenting.
  • Mediation: If a couple decides to utilize mediation when going through a legal separation or divorce, then they may be able to settle their differences more quickly and equitably. Mediation usually focuses on specific challenges such as spousal support, property rights, child support, visitation rights and custody.
  • Child Abuse and Neglect: In divorce proceedings, there may be claims of child abuse or neglect or such charges may be made independent of such an action. Child abuse involves subjecting a child to physical, psychological, and/or emotional harm and damage. Child neglect occurs when a person responsible for a child does not provide for or withholds food, medicine, shelter, or medical care from a child.
  • Domestic Violence: If domestic violence occurs, whether it is the result of action by a male or female, then the offending party will be arrested and jailed. Domestic violence is concerned with one adult causing physical harm to another and is a very serious situation.
  • Adoption: Although adoption can be a joyful event, it is also very stressful, time-consuming, and expensive. Legal adoption can be a complicated rollercoaster ride for those wanting to start a family.
