Family LawThe Right Lawyer on Your Side
The field of family law encompasses some of life’s most difficult issues. It can involve complex matters related to marriage, children, parenthood, financial issues and interpersonal struggles. Family Law matters often involve high stakes and long-term consequences. It is wise to be selective when seeking a lawyer to assist you in resolving family law matters while protecting your legal rights and advocating for your best interests.
Extensive Family Law Experience. A Focus On Action And Results.
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we have extensive experience in the area of family law. We have a reputation for being aggressive and proactive, we are focused on action and we are dedicated to finding solutions to your most challenging family law problems. Our firm handles matters including:
Divorce and Marital Separation
Divorce can be one of life’s most difficult experiences. In addition to the challenges of property division, lifestyle transitions and changes that affect children, there are often serious emotional challenges and difficult choices that need to be made. Because of the seriousness of these matters, it is important to have the right attorney from the beginning.
If you are going through a divorce, the choices you make now can have a significant impact on the future. “Do it yourself” methods and poor representation can result in increased financial liability and all kinds of problems down the road. While life is unpredictable, experience has shown us that thorough, strategic legal representation can prevent many of these problems.

At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we will handle your divorce case properly the first time, without mistakes and without excuses. Our Florida attorneys are proactive and aggressive, with a total focus on action and results. We can help you find answers to questions like:
- Who will get the house? What if the house is “upside down” or “underwater”?
- How will child custody be determined? What does time sharing mean?
- Will I be entitled to child support or spousal support?
- Will I have to pay child support? If so, who decides how much?
- How will assets be divided? Is everything split in half?
- What if I own a business? Is my spouse entitled to half of it?
- How will debts be divided? How can I make sure it’s done fairly?
- What if I am in the military? What if my spouse is a service member?
- What’s the difference between uncontested divorce and contested divorce?

Division of Assets & Debts
Custody & Visitation (Time Sharing)
In Florida, the term time sharing is used to describe child custody and visitation arrangements. Time-sharing orders are issued by a court and must be adhered to by both parents of a child.
If you have a time-sharing concern or if you’re unclear about how the law relates to you and your child or children, an experienced family lawyer can help you find a solution. We Can Help You Resolve Your Time-Sharing Issue.
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we understand custody and visitation issues because we handle them every day, serving mothers and fathers alike in resolving time-sharing matters of all kinds.
Our attorneys can help you find specific answers to important questions like:
Is an unmarried mother of a child the default custodian?
In many cases, but it depends on the situation.
Does a mother have to let a father see his child?
It depends on the situation. When paternity is established, a father can obtain visitation rights.
How does child support relate to time sharing?
Florida courts use formulas to dictate if child support will be paid, and, if so, how much. We can help you understand how these formulas relate to your situation.
Why is the Florida Department of Revenue involved in my custody situation?
If your child was born outside a marriage, the Department of Revenue may intervene if benefits are being paid by the state.
Can I increase the amount of time I spend with my son or daughter?
In some situations, you can petition a court for modification of your time-sharing or child custody order.
What if the mother or father of my child is not being cooperative about custody or visitation arrangements?
We can help you pursue enforcement of time-sharing orders if the other parent is not allowing you to see your child.
Everyone knows that children need to be provided for, and most people are familiar with the basics of how child support works.
Whether it is ordered as part of a divorce or through the Florida Department of Revenue, child support is calculated based on the income of both parents, on time-sharing arrangements and on other factors.
Pursuing Child Support Arrangements That Are Fair And Appropriate
If you pay or receive child support (or expect to pay or receive it), you may have important concerns about your children, your money and your legal rights. An experienced family law attorney can help you make sure your child support arrangements are fair and appropriate, and that they are adhered to by your co-parent.
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we understand all aspects of Florida child support, and we know how to get results. Our attorneys can help you find specific answers to important questions like:
- Why is the Florida Department of Revenue involved in my child support case?
- How does child support modification work? Do I qualify for a modification?
- How can I be sure I’m not paying too much or receiving too little?
- What if I simply can’t afford the child support payments?
- What if I’m not actually the father of a child?
- What if I get married or my co-parent gets married? How will that affect child support?
Every child support situation is different. We can help you understand how Florida laws apply to you and your children and help you explore your options for resolving your child support issue as quickly as possible.

Alimony, which is sometimes known as spousal support, refers to payments by one former spouse to another, usually during or following a divorce. In Florida, alimony can take several forms, including bridge-the-gap alimony (which is temporary), durational alimony (which is ordered by a court for a specified period of time), lump-sum alimony and permanent alimony (which is ordered in rare cases). Since every divorce case is different, no two alimony arrangements are exactly alike.
If you believe you are entitled to alimony, if you expect to pay alimony, or if you anticipate a change in circumstances that may impact your current alimony arrangements, you may be concerned about your finances, and you may be wondering whether you will be treated fairly in court. Our firm can help you address these and other important family law issues.
Guidance Regarding Alimony Matters
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we represent parties in divorce cases and in all aspects of alimony matters. If you are unsure about your rights and responsibilities with regard to spousal support, we can help you by:
- Helping you understand how the length of your marriage, your and your spouse’s incomes, and other factors impact your support obligation or entitlement
- Assessing your need for support and/or your ability to pay support
- Considering how child support may play a role in your case if you have children under the age of 18
- Modifying alimony if your income has changed significantly

Some grandparents are in the difficult position of having to care for their grandchildren when the children’s parents should be doing so. Other grandparents want to obtain guardianship or temporary custody of their grandchildren because of substance abuse or mental health problems affecting their own children. Since Florida law gives limited rights to grandparents, though, these problems often require the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer.
If you are caring for your grandchild, or you believe you should be, our firm can assist you. We are highly experienced in the area of family law, having successfully handled many complex cases involving children and families.

When a family court orders child custody, visitation, child support or alimony, the parties involved are required to adhere to the order.
When a person does not keep his or her end of the arrangement, legal action may be necessary in order to enforce the order.
If your child’s other parent is disregarding a court order, you can pursue enforcement of the court order in a number of ways with the help of a family law attorney. By the same token, an experienced lawyer can help you protect your rights if you are the subject of an enforcement action that is inappropriate or unfair, or that is the product of a misunderstanding.
Strong Legal Representation In Enforcement Matters
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we provide strong legal representation and advice in family law cases of all kinds, including cases involving the enforcement of court orders. We can help you enforce a family court order or defend yourself against an enforcement action if your matter involves:
- Child support payments
- Child custody and time sharing
- Alimony that has gone unpaid
- Motions for contempt
- Writs of bodily attachment (jail time) for violating a court order
- Suspension or reinstatement of a driver’s license
Every situation is different. Seek legal advice if you need assistance with a Florida enforcement matter.

In some family law cases, changes in life call for changes to legal arrangements. If you are researching the modification of court orders, you may have experienced a change in income or expenses, or a change regarding the needs of your child or children. Particularly if you have been divorced for years, you may be wondering what legal rights you have if an existing court order no longer addresses your situation properly.
If you can show a court that you have experienced a substantial change of circumstances, you may be able to change an existing court order. Our firm can help you explore this important issue.
Seeking Modification Of Florida Court Orders
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we represent parties in obtaining modifications of court orders. We can assist you if you are interested in a modification (or you wish to contest a modification) related to:
- A lost job, a business problem or another reduction in income
- Relocation due to a career, family or relationship change
- Additional expenses for your children
- Child custody and time sharing
- Alimony or spousal support
Modification is not possible or advisable in every case. One of our lawyers can evaluate your situation and help you determine if a modification is a viable option for you.

No one gets married believing that his or her marriage will end. However, some people wish to protect their interests and prevent problems through the use of prenuptial (or premarital) and postmarital agreements, knowing that a future divorce could have a substantial financial impact. This is especially common when significant assets, business interests and/or family assets are involved.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract that enables parties to define what assets will be considered separate property (belonging to one party) and what assets will be considered marital property (belonging to both parties).
A postnuptial agreement is a contract made after marriage that can similarly delineate what assets belong to each of the parties.
Protecting Assets, Before And After Marriage
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, our experienced family law attorneys provide advice and representation with regard to prenuptial and postmarital agreements. If you are considering ways to protect wealth, we can assist you in developing contracts that address:
- Assets acquired before the marriage such as inherited assets
- Assets that were acquired, or that may be acquired, after marriage
- Business interests, including family businesses
- Professional practices, including medical and legal practices
- Real estate holdings
- Investments such as stocks, bonds and retirement accounts
Premarital and postmarital agreements are not appropriate for everyone.
Seek the advice of a lawyer if you have questions about your situation.
