Whatever family issue you may be facing, the right family law attorney can make all the difference. At Christopher M. Sprysenski, P.A., we are committed to help clients overcome the fears to help them achieve their goals.
By providing you a variety of options, a family law attorney can help reduce the stress you may be facing in your case. Our firm uses a detailed consultation and intake process to make sure that we understand all aspects of your case.

We can then provide you with different options to approach your family law issue so you can choose the solution that works best for you. Sometimes a case might best be resolved through a collaborative divorce or a mediation. Other times your case might require the drafting of a prenuptial agreement. Some cases cannot be resolved without the court’s assistance. The right family law attorney will help you understand the avenues available to resolve your case.
Your family law attorney should address the issues in your case. Most cases involve one or two issues that prevent spouses from resolving a case without conflict. Our family law attorneys strongly believe that if an issue does not exist in a case, a fight should not occur just for fighting’s sake. The issues involved in family law cases can be broken out typically into four categories:
Issues involving kids are the hardest part of any family law case. You want to make sure that you are caring for your child’s best interests but not exposing them to conflict. Children’s issues include:
• Where your child will live the majority of the time;
• What type of timesharing you will have with your children;
• How will decisions regarding your children be made; and
• Who will providefinancial support for your children.
Florida Statutes provide a balancing test that a Court will use to decide the above issues. This balancing test is fact intensive and the right family law attorney will help present the facts that matter. Other children’s issues also require a careful review by a family law attorney. For example, adopting a child may be difficult if a child’s natural born parents do not consent. A paternity action may need to be filed if you need to have your child’s other parent help financially with your child’s expenses. The right family law attorney will listen to your unique situation and offer potential solutions that work for you.
Florida law begins with the idea that all property created during a marriage should be divided equally. There are many exceptions to this starting point. The right family law attorney will perform a review of your assets and help you identify when a piece of property should be yours and only yours.
Sometimes one spouse expects that the other spouse will pay them support after they are divorced. In Florida, these payments are referred to as alimony. There are many different types of spousal support that differ based on factors such as the length of your marriage. Your family law attorney should make sure you are aware of the support issues that exist in your case from the beginning. Identifying support issues will help you make realistic goals.
Changes After the Conclusion of Your Case.
Issues may also arise after your first case is over. Your family law attorney should advise you of what is required to go back to court if your life changes. The needs of your children may change as they grow. You may lose your job and no longer be able to provide child support or alimony. A court retains the right to consider these changes. Going back to court requires that a change important enough to revisit the marriage occur, and the right family law attorney should inform you whether your change is addressed by Florida law.
