Established Florida Lawyer Handles Child Custody Disputes

Attentive attorney helps parents resolve vital parenting issues

If you are at odds with your children’s other parent about where your children should live, how much time they should spend with each parent or how they should be raised, it is essential to seek the advice of a qualified Florida family law attorney. At Law Office of Patricia Lynch Franklin, P.A., Ms. Franklin can present your case and advocate for your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment.  In Florida, custody is referred to as timesharing and all aspects of parenting are addressed in a “parenting plan”.  Ms. Franklin represents parents in Florida custody disputes in the Highlands, Hardee and Polk County areas and throughout Florida. Above all else, the Law Office of Patricia Lynch Franklin, P.A. is committed to protecting your child’s best interests while upholding your parental bond.

Experienced attorney provides guidance to develop fair parenting plans

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce: it takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. Ms. Franklin uses mediation strategies to guide the negotiation process toward a healthy resolution.

Skilled litigator represents parents in family court

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent will not compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation may be the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Ms. Franklin’s methodical approach to litigation enables clients to feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure. The Law Office of Patricia Lynch Franklin, P.A. represents clients in matters related to:

  • Shared custody arrangements
  • Timesharing (custody) rights
  • Modification of timesharing and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Dependency proceedings involving the Department of Children and Families
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Litigation is uncertain and uncertainty is stressful for parents and children alike. As your committed representative, Ms. Franklin is prepared to address all of your concerns and those of your family in cases involving the custody of your children.
