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 the law office of Christine Sue Cook, LLC, we help men and women answer their questions about divorce. We resolve their family law issues in a way that is professional, respectful and forward-looking. We help with issues such as:
- Contested divorce
- Military divorce
- Collaborative law
- Property division
- High-asset property division
- Child custody/time-sharing
- Child support
- Spousal support/alimony
- Divorce and estate planning
- Termination of parental rights
There Are Many Approaches To Successfully Resolve Disputes
Attorney Christine Sue Cook is trained in collaborative law methods. Collaborative law is a system designed to resolve family law issues without the high-conflict atmosphere of traditional courtroom litigation. Using mediation and other techniques, she helps people communicate clearly and respectfully to reach satisfying settlement agreements while maintaining a positive, cooperative approach to solving problems.
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.
We will help you develop a strategy to efficiently resolve your family law issues so you can get on with your life. We are highly skilled, resourceful and knowledgeable about a suite of approaches to achieving favorable outcomes for your family law issues. Because our sole focus is family law, we represent our clients in mediation, negotiation or in court.
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. We help parents with many issues in time-sharing and child support, including negotiating agreements, modifying orders and more.
