A Simple Divorce Process

Faughnan Law in Jacksonville, Florida, eases the painful divorce process by first trying mediation services. If your marriage is falling apart and you want to take legal action, we aim to complete the process with fewer conflicts. We can also help with paternity, custody, and adoption processes.

Contested Vs. Uncontested Divorces

In uncontested cases, both parties have decided how to divide their marital assets and liabilities after resolving all issues with regards to any children. A contested divorce, on the other hand, is when spouses do not agree with the terms of the divorce.

Arrangement Modifications

When your life's circumstances change and this affects your monthly income, come and talk to us about modifying your child support payments. We can also help with visitation modifications when your address, availability, or ability to care for your child has changed.

What You Should Know About Child Custody

Shared parenting requires parents to confer with each other when making major decisions that affect the health, safety, and welfare of the child. On the other hand, you should know that in the state of Florida, sole custody is usually the exception and is generally only ordered in cases where one parent is deemed unfit to share in the day-to-day care of the child. Also, if you fail to comply with a parenting plan ordered by the court, there are many penalties that you could face.
