Child Custody And Visitation Lawyer In Orlando
Resolving Florida Child Custody Matters
While resolving child custody disputes can be frustrating for parents, it is often a more upsetting experience for children. Many kids are confused, and they do not understand why their parents are fighting or breaking up. I am Orlando child custody attorney Greg Colvin, and I work closely with my clients and their children, helping create a child custody arrangement that meets everyone's needs.
With more than 25 years of experience, I have helped numerous clients throughout Central Florida create effective parenting plans that comply with Florida Statute 61. I will take the time to learn about your situation and offer legal counsel that is uniquely tailored to your needs.
Upholding The Best Interests Of Your Children
In most child custody cases, the state wants both parents to be actively involved in raising their children. This is true whether the parents are married or unmarried. Acting on that theory in most jurisdictions, unless it is against the best interests of the child, many courts will implement a 50-50 time-sharing plan. However, sole custody is still possible in certain cases.
Mediation Versus Litigation
Often the needs of all individuals involved are better served by creating a plan outside of the courtroom. Utilizing mediation often allows me to work closely with both parents to create a plan that addresses the parental responsibilities and needs of the mother, the father and the children.
At the same time, I have extensive litigation experience and will not hesitate to take a case to court if necessary to uphold a mother's rights or a father's rights. In some cases, I help clients pursue the termination of parental rights. I am also skilled in litigating cases involving parental relocation and the rights of out-of-state parents.
