Fort Myers Family Law Attorney

Making Your Children A Central Focus Of Your Divorce, In A Positive Way

At Sheldon E. Finman, P.A., our family law practice centers around alternative dispute resolution and using problem-solving methods to allow you and your spouse more control over the outcome of your divorce than the traditional adversarial method of litigation. We will work to find an acceptable solution for you and your spouse to reduce the friction common between divorced people, making life easier for your children.

Because we take the time to discuss these issues and come up with positive, workable solutions, there is more flexibility to maximize the net result that you will have every month after child support is paid. This makes it easier on both of you, which makes it easier on your kids.

What Are Florida’s Guidelines For Child Support?

In Florida, there are standard child support guidelines that dictate the amount of financial support each parent will put toward the welfare of his or her children. The amount will be based on the relative income of both parties and how many nights the child spends with each parent per week, month or year. The court could consider other factors like taxes, health care and other expenses.

We Help Resolve Conflicts For The Sake Of Your Kids

Using alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative law and cooperative divorce with a neutral party, we will work with your spouse and his or her lawyer to come to an arrangement regarding child support payments that suits both of your pocketbooks and lifestyles, yet still maintains your children in a manner similar to when you were married, to give them the best environment to grow and flourish.
