Focusing on Fathers
Holly Aliprandi, Esq. has been practicing family law for years. Her family law practice has always focused primarily on fathers because she knows the law is not always applied fairly to fathers and does not always see fathers as equal parents to mothers. When involved in a case, she makes every effort to successfully resolve it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Below are some of the most common family law matters the Law Offices of Holly A. Aliprandi, P.A. assists clients with:
Paternity: When you have a child born out of wedlock, even if you are on your child’s birth certificate, you must establish your paternity through the court system in order to establish your rights as a father. An action for paternity will also determine timesharing and child support. Without establishing your paternity through the court system, you will only have the parental responsibilities for your child without the parental rights. The Law Offices of Holly A. Aliprandi, P.A. represents fathers to establish their parental rights and ensure they are provided the opportunity to be the parent they are.
Dissolution of Marriage: The end of a marriage is a difficult time for both spouses. A dissolution of marriage is a divorce, whereby the court legally ends your marriage, divides up all assets and debts, sets alimony (if warranted) and child support, and determines a parenting plan for minor children. Various factors can make a dissolution of marriage complicated. The Law Offices of Holly A. Aliprandi, P.A. represents parties, whether parents or not, in dissolution of marriage actions.
Timesharing Matters: Florida no longer awards “custody” of children, but rather determines timesharing. Timesharing is the schedule of a minor child’s time with each parent. Timesharing is set in paternity actions and dissolution of marriage actions involving minor children. Once timesharing is set, it may be modified if there is a substantial change in circumstances. The Law Offices of Holly A. Aliprandi, P.A. provides representation in both the initial setting of timesharing and modification of timesharing actions.
Child Support: Both parents are required to provide financial support for their minor child(ren). Child support is based on a statutory mathematical equation using your income, the other parent’s income, health insurance costs, child care costs, and number of overnights with each parent. While this seems clear cut, many factors could alter the outcome of the mathematical equation. Additionally, in initial actions for paternity or dissolution of marriage, retroactive child support is set for up to twenty four (24) months prior to the filing of the action. Just as with timesharing matters, child support may be modified upon a showing of a substantial change in circumstances. The Law Offices of Holly A. Aliprandi, P.A. provides representation in all child support matters.
