Experienced Florida Lawyer Manages Child Custody Issues

Compassionate attorney protects your rights to raise your child

Child custody is the most important issue a parent faces during divorce. No parent should have to endure the devastation of losing precious time with a child or forfeiting essential parental rights because of an unjust custody or visitation decision. You need an attorney committed to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. With more than 46 years of experience managing child custody disputes in Florida, Lynn W. Rhodes, P.A. can help assert for your rights in matters related to:

  • Primary or joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Lynn W. Rhodes, P.A. is committed to helping you maintain a meaningful relationship with the child you love.

Mediation: a tool for cooperation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. I guide negotiations towards a settlement that protects your child’s best interests and your parental rights.

By your side throughout the court process

Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests. If negotiations fail or the other parent is a danger to your child’s well-being, the courtroom provides an essential forum for establishing your parental rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval of this time. But with an experienced family law attorney by your side, you can feel confident that your children will be protected and your parental rights remain secure.
