Child Custody and Visitation/Parenting Plans
Walter Thomas, PA, divorce attorneys protect your parental rights and ensure that you are involved in raising your children. We have assisted hundreds of clients in designing parenting plans that are logical and beneficial for their child(ren).
Child support is traditionally paid by the parent with less custody to the other parent to help with the expenses of caring for a child. We will work to preserve your financial interests and the interests of your children. We can assist you in understanding the Florida State Child Support Guidelines, and in getting the appropriate child support amount established and started.
Child Support Modification and Enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court or the Florida Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement modifies the child support order. If you have found yourself earning less income than expected, or if your ex-spouse has a larger earning potential than before, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments.
Declaration of Paternity
Ensure you receive all of your paternal rights by filing for a declaration of paternity. We will help you to secure time with your child and ensure that you are not overpaying child support.
Contempt proceedings are held when there has been a violation of a court order, such as refusal to pay child support or to allow visitation.
