- Guardianship & Probate: Guardianships and sole conservatorships are legal agreements that define who has the right to make decisions on behalf of children or dependent adults who are elderly or have special needs. Probate is the legal process that takes place after your death to pass title to your assets and to resolve any outstanding debts.Planning ahead to avoid probate may be the single most important act you can do to protect your heirs from this expensive, lengthy, and annoying process.
- Child Support & Alimony: In Florida the required level child support is determined by formulas in the law, which change periodically. These formulas are based on the incomes of the parents and the number of children, adjusted for certain expenses such as school tuition, medical expenses, day care and summer camp expenses.
- Divorce: These cases frequently address issues regarding shared or sole parental responsibility, child custody, child support, visitation, relocation of residency out-of-state, alimony, equitable distribution of property and attorneys fees and costs associated with the litigation.
- Domestic Violence Injunctions: There are injunctions prohibiting acts of domestic violence that are available to protect victims from further acts of domestic violence. Morris Law Group supports the goal of “Zero Tolerance” of domestic violence.

- Custody: Child custody, if disputed between parents, is possibly the most difficult issues in many divorces. Child support is almost always owed by the person who does not have primary conservatorship to the person that does have primary conservatorship, but there are exceptions.
- Relocation: When a dispute arises because one parent wants to move away with their child and the other parent wants the child to remain in Florida, meeting in the middle is not an option.
- Paternity: Regardless of whether you would like to be a part of your child’s life or are interested in collecting child support for them, there are many factors that are important to consider.
- Separation: There are many reasons why spouses want to legally separate but not get divorced—religion being one of them. Maintaining medical insurance eligibility and staying within a specific tax bracket are other reasons. A couple may also want to try a “temporary” separation while they are considering ending their marriage permanently.
- Pre-nup / Post-nup: Marriage is not only a public statement of a couple’s emotional commitment, but a powerful legal and economic relationship. Laws governing community property and mutual responsibility have become more complex, and so have the issues dealt with in premarital agreements.
- Mediation: Mediation is an alternative to litigating in court. In a mediated case, the husband and wife meet with a mediator whose role as a third-party neutral is confidential and unbiased. A mediator can give general legal information but not legal advice to either party.
