Handling complex divorce and family law cases for clearwater and surrounding communities

Family Law Disputes Have A Bad Reputation

Certainly, divorce, child custody and related issues can stir painful emotions. But disputes in family law do not have to turn into ugly fights or leave bitter feelings and resentment in their wake.

At Christine Sue Cook, LLC, attorney Christine S. Cook helps men and women get answers to their questions about divorce and family law matters. Her approach is simple – she solves issues in a professional and respectful manner. She frequently assist with the following Florida family law issues:

  • Divorce, including contested divorce and military divorce
  • Property division, including complex and high-asset issues
  • Child custody/time-sharing
  • Child support
  • Fathers’ rights
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Adoption
  • Termination of parental rights

Approaches To Successfully Resolving Florida Family Law Disputes

Attorney Christine S. Cook is trained in collaborative law., a dispute resolution method that resolves family law issues without the high-conflict atmosphere of traditional courtroom litigation. Using collaboration and other techniques, she helps people communicate clearly and respectfully to reach satisfying settlement agreements.

However, collaborative law is not the right approach for every client or every issue, but it is a system highly regarded by the courts. When parties can agree to resolve their disputes through collaborative law, they stand to achieve long-lasting results for themselves, their finances and their children.

Christine works hard to find the best dispute resolution for her clients.

Child Custody And Child Support

Florida law uses the term “time-sharing” for child custody because the goal is to give children the benefit of spending time with each parent. However, the split is rarely exactly 50-50. Parents must negotiate how they will divide their responsibilities in a way that meets the best interest of the child.

Child support is related to custody but is handled very differently.  Christine helps divorcing parents with many issues involved with time-sharing and child support, including negotiating agreements, modifying orders and more.
