Florida family law cases tend to be sensitive and emotional because they involve family, money, and property issues. Depending on the significance of the issues and the amount of conflict involved, Florida family law cases can be handled in several different ways. Some Florida family law cases can be settled without going to trial. Mediation is a possible approach to reaching a resolution. Mediation consists of a neutral third party who facilitates an agreement in Florida family law cases. A judge may also be appointed to make a decision regarding family matters. When Florida family law cases involve children, the judge will always rule in favor of the best interest of the children.
While the courts try to simplify family conflict resolution and negotiations, the laws are still complex and cases can be overwhelming. If you don’t understand the particulars of Florida family law, particularly in cases involving children, the procedure will be daunting and you may unknowingly give up valuable rights. With most family law cases, the help of a qualified Florida family law attorney is essential in order to best protect your legal rights.
