Florida Family Attorney

About Lesley Turmelle Abbott

Family Law encompasses domestic issues from divorce to child custody disputes. The specifics vary depending on the situation, but the goal is to protect an individual’s rights within the context of family. Divorce, for example, will address how property is divided and who will pay spousal support when a married couple separates, whereas child custody law will help determine what is in the best interest of a child when the parents separate. Family-related legal issues can also apply to non-married couples, estate planning and bankruptcies.
