We provide compassionate advocacy

Child Custody And Support Modifications: Sarasota Lawyer

In matters of child custody and support, our motto of “compassionate advocacy” means helping clients establish rules for support, then seeking appropriate solutions if circumstances change. Child support, one of the most difficult issues in a divorce, often later involves modification and enforcement disputes.

With more than 20 years of experience in the legal profession, as a lawyer and as a paralegal, our firm’s founding Attorney Tinley M. Rudd has dealt with these issues many, many times. She understands the complex calculations and legal tests that are done to establish support payments in the first place. She is also very familiar with the situations under which such support may or may not be modified, and what to do if enforcement becomes an issue.

If you have concerns about child custody or child support modifications in Florida, we encourage you to call us at 941-870-3977 or complete our contact form to make an appointment. We serve clients throughout Sarasota and the surrounding communities.

Experienced Lawyer Handling Both Sides Of Modification And Enforcement Cases

Our firm represents clients on all sides and with respect to all phases of modifying and enforcing the terms of child custody and support. Because we represent a complete range of clients with respect to these issues, we can advise clients intelligently, not only as to their own legal strategies but as to the potential strategies of the other side as well.

Sometimes circumstances change, warranting the modification or enforcement of a custody or support order. In other situations, a court-approved modification is not likely. We can advise with regard to your specific circumstances, as well as create an effective strategy for achieving your goals for yourself and your family.

We regularly counsel clients regarding modification and enforcement questions, including:

  • The proper amount of child support
  • Time sharing
  • Parental responsibilities
  • Paternity
  • Hidden assets that, when discovered, affect the amount of support payments

Our firm knows how to investigate all of these matters. We know how to use evidence gathered during this investigation to craft a case that we can meaningfully present to the court.

We also have the practical knowledge of how various judges and opposing counsel may view your legal arguments. We then work closely with you to take those views into account.
