Divorce law lawyers in Vero Beach FL
At Leanne L. Ohle, P.A., we focus on resolving a wide range of family issues, many of which are related. These scenarios include the following:
- Divorce: Divorce is not based on fault in Florida. This means that either party can choose to legally end the union if there is no chance of reconciliation. The divorce must be either handled between the two parties or litigated with the help of a divorce lawyer, and the latter is usually necessary when issues such as child custody, child support and distribution of large assets are at play.
- Child Custody: In Florida, custody of children under the age of 18 is typically shared between the parents unless this would prove detrimental to the children. The court looks at several factors when determining custody and bases the decision on what is best for the child's emotional and physical needs.
- Child Support: Strict state guidelines are in place for child support amounts based on the incomes of the parents, and payments continue until the child reaches the age of 18. Child support also encompasses health insurance coverage and out-of-pocket medical expenses for the child.
- Paternity: This type of case establishes the legal father of a child so that child support and parental time-sharing arrangements can be negotiated and enacted. Either the father or the mother of the child can make a paternity action, and parentage is typically proven with DNA testing.
