What Are Some of the Services That Family Law Attorneys Provide?
Many people hear the term family law attorney but are not sure what legal services a family law attorney provides. A family law attorney typically offers a wide range of services that assist families with legal issues they are unable to resolve on their own. Often family members seek legal representation because they realize the matters they need help with are beyond the scope of what they can do to solve a problem.

- Spousal support
- Prenuptial/postnuptial agreements

Is Mediation a Good Alternative to Divorce?
It is never an easy time, emotionally or financially, when a couple decides to end their marriage. Going through a divorce can become contentious when deciding on issues involving finances, spousal support, child custody, or visitation. In addition, the process of divorce can be quite costly and could potentially take a great deal of time depending on the issues that need to be resolved.
One alternative when seeking a divorce is to work out spousal differences through mediation. Mediation helps couples save time and money by avoiding the costs related to going to court. If you agree to mediation, you and your spouse will meet together in a neutral setting with an impartial mediator. Both sides will bring legal counsel to assist them in protecting their legal rights.
Mediation has proven effective in settling the following type of hotly contested issues:
- Property division
- Spousal support
- Child custody
- Child support
Mediation is also a favorable alternative in a divorce as it allows you to share your thoughts and feelings on the matters that are most important to you. Conversely, in a divorce that occurs in a courtroom setting, the judge will make the final decisions based on what he or she feels is in the best interests of each party, but not necessarily listen to your side of the story.
Lastly, making use of the mediation process also prevents your case from being delayed due to the backlog of other cases in the court system.
RTRLAW’s family law attorneys have extensive experience in handling mediation proceedings and will help you receive an outcome that you feel is favorable to you. Contact us today.
Why Would I Need to Have a Postnuptial Agreement?
Just like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement can be greatly beneficial to a couple in several various situations. One of the most common reasons a married couple would seek a postnuptial agreement is that they did not have adequate time to draft a prenup before they were married or now find they need to make changes to their original agreement.
Drafting a postnuptial agreement can allow couples to dictate how inherited and business assets are managed in the future or should there be a divorce. Often an individual who has children from a prior marriage will wish to guarantee that their offspring are bequeathed certain assets that they themselves have inherited and that it does not become included in marital property.
Some other practical reasons to have a postnuptial agreement in place include:
- Reducing potential financial conflicts that may arise during the course of the marriage.
- Joining together marital assets.
- Resolving marital issues without the cost and stress of a divorce.
One of the greatest benefits of a postnuptial agreement is that it clarifies financial and business aspects of a marriage, so that both parties have an understanding of what will occur in the event of a divorce.
If you’d like more information about how a postnuptial agreement can benefit you, contact RTRLAW at our Orlando, Fla. office and schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable family law attorneys who can advise you how to proceed.
When is a Family Law Attorney the Best Choice?
When choosing an attorney to represent you, you must take into account certain factors to ensure your interests will be protected. When dealing with the often complex and challenging issues that pertain to divorce, child custody, or spousal support, a qualified attorney who practices in family law can help you make sense of it all. Not all attorneys have the necessary skills and qualifications needed to help clients achieve successful outcomes in these types of legal situations.
One of the most important aspects to consider when choosing an attorney is experience. When trying to resolve family law issues, it’s best to obtain legal representation from an attorney who has prior experience in handling these types of legal matters.
For example, an attorney who has handled a wide variety of family law cases is preferable to a general practice attorney who may not have the qualifications you need to represent you. A family law attorney would be more familiar with the various legal procedures that are required in family court or when trying to draft prenuptial or postnuptial agreements than a general practice or other type of attorney.
Another thing to consider when choosing representation for your family matter is the size of the law firm. Some clients feel more comfortable working with a smaller firm, while others feel more confident working with a law firm that employs a great deal of attorneys.
Above all, when choosing a lawyer for any type of legal situation, you need to be certain that you find legal counsel you feel comfortable with, that you trust, that you can rely on and that you want working with you throughout the duration of your case.
