Riverview Divorce Attorneys
Family Lawyers serving Riverview, FL since 1997
If you are looking for top rated divorce and family law attorneys in Hillsborough County our main law office is conveniently located in Riverview just off of I-75 on Highway 301 South at the intersection of Bloomingdale. Our goal at the law firm of All Family Law Group is to provide superior, responsive and informed representation of our clients. We attempt to resolve all of our cases through settlement, if at all possible, to avoid the monetary and emotional expense of a contested divorce or other family law matter. It is up to the parties to agree and to compromise with each other so that they can resolve their differences amicably. Often in a divorce or family law settlement neither of the parties believe that they have come out ahead.
See the following for specifics on our areas of practice and information:
The predominate family matter aside from divorce is paternity determination, which petition can be initiated by either the father or the mother for different reasons. It is especially important for a father to petition to establish paternity as it is necessary for him to be declared legally the father and have full rights to custody, visitation and decision making as well as child support and other obligations. Being named on the Birth Certificate is not sufficient to establish himself legally as the father.
Name Change and Adoption Attorneys
The experienced and established attorneys at our Riverview law office have extensive experience in both contested and uncontested stepparent and relative adoptions of minor children or adults. These adoptions do not require a home study as is required in the adoption of a child from a third party. If the natural parent signs a consent to the adoption it is considered uncontested and the adoption can proceed without the biological parent being involved. If the biological parent does not consent then the case becomes contested and certain factors must be established prior to proceeding to litigation. Furthermore, any child support obligation will terminate for the biological parent upon the date the final judgment is signed by the judge.
In addition, we have extensive experience in name changes for minor children and adults. A name change for an adult only involves the person requesting the name change; however, if a minor child’s name is to be changed, it requires the consent of the other biological parent. We have found that if you cannot obtain his or her consent and the biological parent’s whereabouts are known, then the name change will be denied.
