Punta Gorda Child Support Lawyer

Child support, custody and visitation tend to be some of the most highly contested aspects of a divorce proceeding. Ensuring that the child has adequate financial support and protecting one's parental rights are always top priorities. These are complex and often emotionally charged proceedings, and having an experienced lawyer beside you can be extremely beneficial.

At the Law Offices of Steven P. Burch, P.A., we represent mothers and fathers in all aspects of these cases. Attorney Burch has a comprehensive understanding of Florida family law, and he knows the best approach to resolving even the most challenging custody and child support matters.

Experienced Cape Coral Child Custody Attorney

Under Florida law, any custody arrangement must serve the best interests of the child first. In general, the court favors a 50-50 split in parenting time between the mother and the father unless there is reason to believe that the child's welfare would be in jeopardy under such an arrangement. We seek a parenting plan that serves the child's best interests and provides our clients with the maximum amount of time allowable under the law.

We also represent grandparents, aunts, uncles and others in third-party custody matters. There can be a number of reasons that a person other than the child's biological parents might seek custody, including concerns that the biological parents may be unfit, the child being orphaned, the primary caregiver being incarcerated and other issues. We present the strongest possible case to support your request for custody.

Diligently Pursuing a Fair and Accurate Child Support Order

As your Punta Gorda child support attorney, Mr. Burch works hard to ensure that the child support obligation is calculated correctly. Florida uses a specific formula to determine how much child support each parent should pay. The calculation is based primarily on the means of the parents and how much time the child spends with each one.

Attorney Burch does everything he can to ensure that the other parent provides a complete disclosure of all income and conducts a thorough investigation to verify that the information is accurate. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the child support order was established, we can also help you request a modification of the order.
