Practical Advice in Florida Paternity Actions
Paternity is the legal process necessary to establish who a child’s legal father is, a status that goes undetermined if the parents are not married when the child is born. A child’s legal father has a right to seek custody and visitation, as well as a legal obligation to provide child support. If you are seeking or opposing paternity as a mother, putative father, child, husband or other interested party, we can help you understand your rights and provide strong, effective representation in the Hillsborough County courts.
Forceful Advocacy in Domestic Violence Allegations
If you or your children are threatened with or experiencing domestic violence, get to a safe place and call 911, the National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233), or Koether Law. We can help you get a protective order in place that can keep the abusive person from having any contact with you. Likewise, if you feel you are being wrongly accused of domestic violence, we can represent you before a permanent order is put in place. Domestic violence injunctions can have serious consequences on a pending divorce, child custody dispute, or other family law matter.
Insightful Assistance in Drafting, Enforcing or Challenging Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is a valuable tool that helps couples start their marriage relationship with a clear understanding of the financial assets and obligations of each them, as well as their expectations and needs should something happen to alter the marriage down the road, whether it be death, divorce, or some other event. Prenuptial agreements can address the needs and concerns of each prospective spouse, assuring them they will be taken care of and not taken advantage of in case of divorce. Our knowledgeable and compassionate family law attorney can help you negotiate, draft or review a prenuptial agreement, as well as challenge or enforce an existing agreement as needed.
Skilled and Knowledgeable Help With Parental and Grandparent Rights
Grandparents sometimes find their ability to spend time with or communicate with their grandchildren gets cut off by the child’s parent or parents. A grandparent’s right to visitation with their grandchildren can differ depending on whether the child’s parents are married, divorced, or never married, or if one parent has died or deserted the child. The judge must also be convinced visitation is in the best interests of the child, based on a number of factors the court must consider. If you are a grandparent seeking a relationship with your grandchildren or a parent needing to assert your rights, call Koether Law, P.A., in Brandon for a free consultation.
Advice and Assistance With Annulment or Divorce
Divorce is the official dissolution of a legal marriage; annulment is an official recognition that a legal marriage never took place. Annulments are only available for limited reasons that made the marriage either void or voidable. Where the marriage is voidable, certain actions the parties take can remove the grounds for annulment. Even when an annulment is available, divorce is also an option. Call our office for a discussion if you or your spouse are seeking an annulment or divorce. We’ll advise you on the best route given your circumstances and help you at every step.
Moving Forward With Name Change Legal Motions
Changing your name or your children’s names isn’t usually a difficult process, but it is a legal action that must be done carefully and correctly and with a full understanding of all its implications. We can advise you and guide you through the name change process after divorce or at any time for good reason.
Uniting Families Through Adoption
Adopting your spouse’s children is a wonderful way to cement your relationship with your spouse and kids and strengthen family bonds. Adoption creates rights for the child and spouse but also impacts the parental rights (and obligations) of the child’s biological father. We can walk you through the process and provide technical assistance and representation wherever needed while making sure you understand the implications of adoption and know what to expect.
