Practical Solutions For Divorce & Family Law Matters
When it comes to issues of divorce and family law, it goes without saying that tensions run high – particularly when children are involved. When entering into this domain of law, it’s important to have a Panama City family law lawyer to act as an advocate to ensure that your interests are protected and to help you work toward resolutions that are as amicable, efficient and economical as possible.
Delivering Quality And Value
For over 19 years, we at McCauley Law Offices, P.A., have made family law and divorce one of our core practice areas. We know the time and attention each case deserves, and we do everything we can to achieve a fair and just result for our clients and their loved ones.
With three legal secretaries on staff, we’re able to deliver a level of service that clients expect. Even if attorney Carroll L. McCauley III is in court, we are able to use e-mail and phone calls to keep clients informed of all developments in their case.
We’re able to represent clients involved in nearly every kind of family law issue including:
- Asset division, including retirement assets
- Child custody, child support, alimony
- Enforcement (arrears, contempt and garnishment)
- Move-aways/child relocation
- Restraining orders/Orders for Protection
- Divorce for military service members and their families
- Child abuse and neglect
- High-asset divorce
In the state of Florida there is the presumption of equal division of marital property and debt, including retirement plans/accounts, and short- and long-term alimony awards are available in a dissolution of marriage case.
In cases of relocation of a child, the State of Florida mandates that a parent who seeks to relocate the residence of a child more than 50 miles from their present residence file a petition and obtain a court order prior to relocation.
These cases raise very difficult issues regarding the economic welfare of the relocating parent and the continuation of a meaningful relationship between the child and the non-relocating parent. We take these issues very seriously and strive to achieve an outcome that’s in the best interest of the child.
We have also worked on numerous restraining order cases and domestic violence injunction cases, both for the petitioner and respondent, giving us a comprehensive understanding of this aspect of law.
