When you’re facing a divorce or custody matter, emotions run high.  At RL&A, we understand that you need an advocate that will fight for you while also taking the time to be compassionate and empathetic for your family’s situation.

Today, more than ever, it’s important for you to consider both best and worst scenarios when tying the knot, and a prenuptial agreement can prevent misunderstandings and resentment later on should things get rough.  If you’re getting married and need a solid prenuptial agreement that protects your pre-marital assets and business and property interests, please call our office to schedule an appointment.

Whether you’re facing a simple dissolution or a more complex divorce involving assets and minor children in Florida, Ms. Rodriguez and her team provide aggressive representation designed to preserve your family relationships and protect your best interests.  Examples of the types of cases we handle in Florida Family Law include:

  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Simple Dissolution
  • Complex Dissolution

  • Child Support Enforcement

Divorce, domestic violence, and minor child custody matters can be traumatic for all involved. The staff at RL&A works for our clients for the best possible outcome in a time of great stress.

Child Custody

In the State of Florida, Custody is referred to as “Parental Timesharing.” There are a variety of factors to take into consideration for Parental Visitations and what is in the best interest of the children. At RL&A, we look at all facets of your familial situation to help guide you to the outcome that will be best for you and your children, while preserving their parental relationships.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements

More and more people are marrying later in life. They’ve placed their careers at the forefront, and tend to have more assets when they marry. A Pre-Nuptial Agreement is the legal and proper way to preserve the nature of your assets in the unfortunate event of a dissolution or death. A Pre-Nuptial Agreement potentially prevents problems related to asset division and distribution should the marriage end, by not forcing the Court to make the asset division decision.

Division of Marital Assets

When you have assets, bank accounts, real estate, and business investments, a dissolution will require detailed inspection and division of the assets (or debt) that is fair and equitable. Especially in cases that are acrimonious, it’s important to work quickly to hiding of valuable and prevent improper transfers of assets during litigation. We provide resources to forensic CPAs and other experts when necessary to ensure fair asset division for our clients.

Child Support Orders & Modifications

Too often, single parents face adversity in receiving their due Child Support mandated by the Courts. Also, a significant change in circumstances may require both parents to take another look at the original child support agreement. This process can be emotional and stressful. At RL&A, we work side-by-side with our clients to clarify legal standing, ensure that the existing Child Support Orders are properly enforced, and file for Modifications of Timesharing and Child Support when necessary.
