Child Support

Child support amounts can be too low if one spouse does not disclose all of his or her assets as required by law. Locating assets is especially difficult when military benefits are involved. To avoid this, you should turn to an experienced attorney who will help find all of the assets that should be considered.

Ms. Thomas has conducted extensive discovery, ranging from looking at credit card statements to analyzing stated income compared to household expenses to make certain that her clients are receiving their fair share of child support. She does not have to rely on mere intuition to find assets — she has experienced almost every support situation possible during her 25 years of practice, and she knows where to look to make sure all assets are disclosed.

In addition to her successful child support representation, Ms. Thomas also has years of experience making sure that her divorcing clients are paid their fair share of spousal support/alimony.

Child Custody

Things that Ms. Thomas frequently discusses with clients in regard to child custody include:

Florida's approach: Florida does not designate one parent as primary and one as secondary. Both parents are treated equally, and shared parenting is common.

Fathers' rights: Unlike in the past, the father now has just as much say in raising the child as the mother.

Shared parenting plans: These plans allow parents to agree to terms related to different aspects of parenting and are common in Florida. Decisions such as which school children will attend and who will make medical decisions are discussed between the former spouses, and then spelled out in detail in the shared plan.
