Child Custody Attorney In Naples & Marco Island, FL

The Law Offices of Neil Morales has been practicing for nearly two decades, helping clients with the sole aim of resolving their family-related legal matters as painlessly as possible. Divorce is complicated enough—but particularly so when children are involved. In terms of child custody, it is heartbreaking to see children pitted in the midst of two parties, because ultimately, they are the ones that suffer the most. Attorney Neil Morales has years of experience and countless successful instances of successfully mediating between mothers and fathers in order to reach an agreement that is suitable to both sides.

Will I win custody of my child?

The safety and security of a child is of utmost importance for any good parent. This is the reason that it is the driving force behind child custody cases. The courts in Florida feel that a child must feel safe and cared for by their legal guardian. There are no sides taken and no favor is shown to either parent—only a fair judgement delivered with the child’s best interest at heart. However, the courts are in favor of allowing the child the opportunity to be raised by both parents. If both parents prove to be responsible and capable, a ruling is served that allows both parents equal rights and time with their child.

Some Questions That Will Be Answered During Your Case

  • Who will your child primarily live with?
  • What type of health care insurance and education will your child be entitled to?
  • How much time will I/my former spouse be allotted with our child?

How Does Child Custody Work?

There are options in place for determining child custody for both married couples and unmarried partners. For married couples seeking a divorce, child custody will be decided upon during the proceedings. For unmarried individuals, a judge will request a paternity test. Once the identity of the biological father is determined, custody rights will commence and be reviewed by the courts.

The judges in Florida have proven to be in favor of allowing both mother and father to raise their child. However, if one parent is deemed unsuitable to share the custody of their child, various alternatives will be presented in order to work towards the most ideal outcome under such extenuating circumstances. If a parent has presented the courts with evidence that the other parent is unstable and/or their living conditions are unsafe, than full custody will be granted to the parent who is capable of caring for the child.

The process is tedious, but it is necessary in order to ensure the child’s safety and security.
