Family Law Practice Areas

Family Law Attorney Charles D. Jamieson, P.A., represents clients in a range of practice areas related to divorce and behavior. For over 30 years, Mr. Jamieson has worked with clients and the legal community to protect parental rights and ensure no party is disenfranchised. He is a supporter of equal parenting time and collaborative divorce (when appropriate) for the parties involved. In addition, he is available to represent individuals falsely accused of child abuse, often in context of their divorce. Family Law Practice areas include:

Divorce

During a divorce, emotions run high. Dividing substantial assets, debt, and solving complex estate matters in a fair manner is a difficult process. When children are involved, the stakes are even higher. Individuals seeking a divorce should be informed of all levels of legal services available to them when looking to hire a divorce attorney, or embark on their Pro Se divorce case. 

Collaborative Divorce

Divorce doesn’t have to turn you and your spouse into bitter adversaries. Collaborative divorce is a relatively new means of ending a marriage, during which spouses and their attorneys agree to reach a resolution out of court. The collaboration process is usually less expensive and can produce a more mutually satisfying outcome to both parties.


Time Sharing & Contact Schedule

(Formerly known as Custody & Visitation)
Pursuant to Florida Law the terms “Time Sharing” and “Contact Schedules” are used instead of “custody” or “visitation.” When children are affected by divorce, studies show that the ideal custody and visitation rights arrangement enables both parents to fully participate in the lives of their children and continue their relationship. When parental rights are violated, children can suffer.

Modification Actions

Finances, relocation, and emotional stability are just a few examples of the many ways people’s circumstances change over time. Children’s needs and best interests can also change. Divorce law has recognized this by providing trial courts with the power to modify any provision within the divorce decree regarding support, maintenance, alimony, child support, parental decision-making, primary residency, and visitation.


Alimony / Spousal Support

Alimony is not automatically awarded in divorce. Instead, alimony is determined by issues such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of the spouse requesting alimony, lifestyle, and the earning disparity during a marriage and others.

Child Support

While child support guidelines provide a baseline for support payments in Florida, many factors can increase or decrease the amount. An experienced child support lawyer can help you ensure that your children are well taken care of, while not overwhelming the paying parent.


Parental Alienation

Parental alienation is a serious issue that has lasting negative consequences for the emotional health of a child. Parental alienation syndrome occurs when one parent purposefully causes a child to reject the other parent. Also called PAS, the syndrome is often cited during custody decisions.

Child Abuse/Neglect Allegations

As a result of severe strain, emotional, or psychological imbalance, a divorcing parent may sometimes falsely accuse the other of child abuse or neglect. In these instances and others unrelated to divorce, an accused individual should immediately seek a qualified attorney with experience in the matter.
