In the often emotionally charged area of time-sharing, formerly referred to as child custody, the help of an experienced, compassionate, knowledgeable Pinellas County family lawyer is essential. The decisions made and the actions taken during this process can have far-reaching consequences for the parent-child relationship.
Although the most common method of arranging time-sharing is a parenting plan between the former spouses or partners, parents sometimes cannot reach an agreement, or time-sharing is contested from the start. At such times, it is essential for a parent to have skilled, aggressive representation to protect his or her parental rights. We have extensive experience in cases of contested time-sharing, and we work to assure that our clients have a voice in these often contentious proceedings.
In addition to our expertise in routine and uncontested dissolutions, we also offer clients guidance in complex dissolutions. Complex, high-value dissolutions often present difficult, time-consuming scenarios for all those involved.
These dissolutions present more complicated property division problems. The sophisticated financial analysis involved often requires reliable valuation of a wide variety of assets:
- Closely held businesses
- Family businesses
- Professional practices
- Significant real estate holdings
- Pension funds
The assistance of specialized appraisers, forensic accountants, investigators, and other experts may be required, and we work with these and other types of experts as needed. As Clearwater family attorneys, we seek to protect our clients' financial interests and to uncover all the information needed to present the client with a clear picture of the financial aspects of the dissolution in the most efficient manner possible. Only when all this information is available can well-informed decision making take place. With knowledgeable guidance, such dissolutions can still be managed in an effective manner that protects the client’s interests.
