Family Law Attorneys in Longwood

Providing You with Caring & Capable Representation

Family law covers a broad arrange of topics, including dissolution of a marriage, child support issues, custody issues, restraining orders, and more. At Levy & Associates P.A., we handle all of these areas.

Dissolution of Marriage

Going through a divorce is often the most difficult time in a person’s life, particularly when children are involved. Attorney Eskin, leaning on her mediation background, believes the best results often come when both parties can work together to reach an amicable solution. However, if that is not possible, our attorneys are prepared to protect the rights of our clients going through a divorce.

A divorce can involve a multitude of issues, such as dividing up marital property, determining if one party is entitled to alimony, and calculating the appropriate amount of child support. It is important for a party going through a divorce to have quality counsel, as knowing what argument to make and how to make it can make a big difference in the outcome of your case.

There are three basic types of dissolution actions:

  • Simplified dissolution of marriage — Available to those who have no minor children, no alimony is being sought, and you and your spouse have agreed on how to distribute marital assets and liabilities.
  • Uncontested dissolution of marriage — Available to those who have reached a settlement agreement on all issues surrounding the dissolution (alimony, child support, parenting plan, and division of assets and liabilities).
  • Contested dissolution of marriage — For when parties are unable to reach an agreement on some aspect of the dissolution.

At Levy & Associates P.A., our Longwood family law attorneys represent clients in all forms of dissolution of marriage. We provide cost-effective assistance for clients going through a simplified dissolution of marriage to ensure all the paperwork is prepared correctly and appropriately filed.

Decades of Experience

The attorneys at Levy & Associates P.A., also assist clients in preparing the necessary documents for an uncontested divorce. Upon filing a dissolution, mediation is often required to try and work out an agreement between the parties. As a mediator, Attorney Eskin is often able to assist clients in reaching an amicable agreement, which can result in the best and most cost-effective scenario. If all parties reach an agreement, a court appearance may not be required.

Should the parties fail to reach an agreement and the dissolution becomes contested, the Longwood divorce attorneys at Levy & Associates P.A., have the experience necessary to effectively advocate for our clients in court.

After a party obtains a final judgment of dissolution of marriage, it may be necessary to bring court action to enforce the final judgment. If your former spouse fails to abide by the final judgment, an enforcement action may be necessary. At Levy & Associates P.A., we assist clients in enforcing their final judgment and marital settlement agreements to ensure their rights are being protected.

Custody

Absent a court adopted parenting plan, both parents of a child have equal rights to the custody and control of the child. The attorneys at Levy & Associates P.A. assist clients going through a dissolution or otherwise establish a parenting plan for their children.

In general, if there are minor children from the marriage, a parenting class and certificate of completion is required. Additionally, parents contemplating divorce or custody changes must submit financial affidavits.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements need to be completed as early as possible when planning a wedding, as entering into an agreement too close to the wedding could potentially invalidate the agreement later on. Each party must be represented by a separate attorney, and financial affidavits outlining all assets must be exchanged so that both parties enter into the agreement with a clear understanding of the repercussions of the agreement in the event of divorce and, even more importantly, in the event of death. Due to a traditional goal of retaining family assets within the family bloodline, a prenuptial agreement can help avoid long-held family assets going to a successor spouse.

Prenuptial agreements can also protect long-term couples who do not intend to marry but want to outline what will happen to specific assets in the event of termination of the relationship. This should also be accompanied by complete estate planning documents.
