Orlando Family Lawyers You Can Trust – and Afford
As the home of Disney World and countless other attractions, most people think of Orlando as a family-friendly place. And that image is certainly bolstered by the countless videos and pictures put out by those same attractions featuring happy, smiling parents and kids. How could anyone ever have any trouble here?
But the truth is that families in Orlando and Orange County are no different than people anywhere else. People here still get divorced. They get trapped in abusive relationships. They want to prove paternity to collect child support – or simply see their kids.
If you or someone you love is facing this kind of life-altering event, it can be incredibly traumatic. And dealing with it may prove to be surprisingly difficult, time-consuming, and confusing. The statutes covering family law issues can be incredibly complex.
With so much at stake, it is vital that you work with an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney. Someone who has handled numerous cases just like yours and helped countless others around Orlando and Orange County.
Their legal expertise may be the difference between getting what you deserve in a divorce and letting your former spouse walk all over you. Between maintaining a healthy relationship with your kids and not being able to see them at all. Between being a survivor of domestic violence or abuse allegations and living as a victim.
But what if you are not able to afford a high-priced Orlando family lawyer?
That’s where we come in. Florida Family Law Clinic boasts skilled, experienced family attorneys all across the Sunshine State – including in and around Orlando.

The Florida Family Law Clinic was founded with a single goal in mind: to provide excellent legal representation to struggling local families and others facing family law issues. Our offices span the entire state, and we work with lawyers all across Florida.
Every one of our attorneys follow the same guiding principles when taking on a case:

- Never stand for domestic violence – or false allegations
- Support an individual’s right to leave an untenable situation
- Work for settlements, but always be ready for trial
And, of course, our family lawyers all believe in the right for everyone to have access to top legal representation regardless of their income level. No one should have to sacrifice their rights because they are unable to afford quality legal counsel. Most family lawyers in our state charge upwards of $350 per hour, but our attorneys work at the reduced rate of $175 per hour.
Areas of the Law Covered by Our Affordable Orlando Family Lawyers
Many people do not really know what “family law” means. Or perhaps they know it involves divorce, but that is about it.
Well, family law can involve a number of different life issues and situations that pertain to your domestic life. Our Orange County family attorneys have experience in a wide variety of family law practice areas, including:
Divorce. Orlando divorces can be quite simple – but they can also be incredibly complicated, painful, drawn-out affairs where both sides do whatever they can to hurt each other. Our goal is always to mediate and find a middle ground while doing our utmost to protect your rights. Especially in situations where children are involved, we strive to keep things civil and help build a foundation that allows you to successfully work together in the future.
Marital Property Distribution. Do you understand which of your assets qualify as “marital assets” and which do not? Have you done a good job of clearly differentiating your assets from those of your spouse? Do you already know that there are going to be a number of assets that both of you will want? Our knowledgeable lawyers understand the nuts and bolts of Florida property distribution laws and will work hard to come to a fair resolution for both sides.
Alimony. Our state has laws in place that outline how alimony is to be awarded, but there is still quite a bit of flexibility within those statutes. We can help you to estimate the alimony that you may be awarded – or required to pay – so you can prepare for the future.
Post-Divorce Litigation. Your relationship with your ex may not end as soon as your divorce is finalized. Life circumstances may change that necessitate altering alimony. Or child support. Or even time-sharing. We can guide you through these often complex situations.
Time-Sharing. Sometimes called child custody or visitation, time-sharing involves which parent children live with, as well as how often each parent will get to see the children. The State of Florida believes in the importance of equal time for both parents except when extenuating circumstances are present. This is a belief that our attorneys share and a goal we strive to achieve in every case that warrants it.
Child Support. The formula for child support in Florida is not simple and straightforward. It involves both how much each parent earns as well as the percentage of time that any involved children spend with each parent. In other words, it is possible that you could potentially receive no child support – even if your children primarily live with you – if your income is vastly greater than that of your ex. Alternatively, even if you only care for your children 20 percent of the time, you could still get child support if your ex has a high income while yours is lower. The guiding principle is the well-being of the children.
Paternity. We believe that every child deserves to know both their mother and father. Likewise, single mothers taking care of children should have to right to verify paternity so they may attempt to get child support. And fathers have the right to file for paternity so they can be involved in the lives of their children. Whatever your goals, we can help.
Domestic Violence. Abuse should never be tolerated, and no one should have to live in a situation that involves violence. It is not good for you, it is not good for any involved children, and it is not good for the abuser. That being said, we also recognize that being accused of domestic violence is something that can destroy a person’s life, and we believe that everyone has the right to the best defense possible.
