Family Law

Assertively Advocating for The Rights of You and Your Family

When facing a legal matter concerning the family, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Family law is a very complex area involving delicate and sensitive issues. You should ensure to hire an attorney who is both experienced and has the emotional intelligence to guide you through this process with dignity. Annette Sanchez Law, P.A. has been helping families in South Florida for years both in the public sector, and now through this firm. We are dedicated to crafting an effective case and working hard to get you the results you’re looking for. We handle a wide range of cases, including those listed here:

Divorce

Divorce is one of the most emotionally challenging events anyone can ever go through. We offer a variety of legal options to help ensure our clients are satisfied once the divorce is finalized. In most cases, we recommend mitigation services, which can help to minimize conflict while still getting fair results. In highly contentious divorces, we have the experience needed to fight aggressively in court. Every case is unique, and we work closely with each client to ensure the best course of action is taken.

Child Custody

Whether during a divorce, after a divorce is finalized, or in cases of abuse or neglect, we offer comprehensive child custody representation. In every case we take on, it is our goal to put the best interests of the children first. They are often the unwilling victims, and we want to defend their rights. We can help craft a fair child custody agreement, amend an existing agreement, or work with you to regain custody of your kids.

Child Support

Child support is an essential component for ensuring kids are getting the care that they need. During a divorce, an initial child support order is typically issued. Over time, however, it may become appropriate to have that adjusted due to any number of factors. Whether you’re looking to have the amount of child support you pay lowered because of a change in job status, or you need to have the child support you receive increased, we are here to help. We’ll review the specifics of your case, and present a compelling argument to the courts.

Dependency

Dependency cases are among the most heartbreaking that go through any courts. If your children, or children you love, are being abused, it is necessary to work hard to have them removed from the danger and placed into a safe home. On the other hand, some parents are falsely accused of abuse or neglect and require an effective defense to protect their parental rights. Here at Annette Sanchez Law, we are here to help the children. We’ll review your specific case, and work with you to ensure the kids involved receive the best possible outcome.

Termination of Parental Rights

Whether you’re looking to have the parental rights of another party involuntarily terminated or you would like to terminate your parental rights to a child, we can help. These cases are often emotionally charged, and we’ll bring calm, compassionate representation to the table to help ensure the children are able to receive the best possible outcome.

Adoption

There are few actions more benevolent than adopting a child in need, but the legal processes are far more complex than most people realize. There are numerous hurdles, considerations, and potential pitfalls along the way—not the least of which is deciding what type of adoption is right for you and your family. We will help you understand all your options, advise you on the most efficient and effective course of action, and guide you every step of the way on the path towards realizing your dream of adopting a child.

Guardianship

If you are taking care of the children of a loved one, it is important to establish legal guardianship. This will allow you to make important decisions such as what school they go to, what medical procedures they receive, and more. Whether you will require long term guardianship or something more temporary, we are here to help.

Paternity

Establishing paternity is absolutely essential in family law. We can help fathers establish paternity so they can begin enjoying the rights and responsibilities of being a father. We also help mothers to establish paternity so they can hold the father accountable for the care they need to provide.
