Attorney Freyberg can assist you with any Family Law legal matters you may have, such as:

Divorce: Attorney Freyberg will help you to complete your divorce efficiently, and with respect to your goals, whether the central issues are uncontested, contested or complex. He uses litigation, negotiation, mediation and collaborative law techniques as needed, to seek the best results for his divorce clients.

Going through a divorce is a difficult time for everyone involved, and Attorney Freyberg will help you through the process with strength and compassion. He will use his vast experience in the court system and his legal skills to make sure your best interests are protected and your divorce is resolved as amicably as possible.

Child custody and visitation: Attorney Freyberg can help you to structure a mandatory Parenting Plan, which includes specifics about parenting time and other responsibilities regarding your minor children. He will always focus on the best interests of your minor children, while protecting your rights as a parent.

Child custody and visitation issues are some the most emotional and contentious issues to contend with in any divorce proceeding. In order to resolve these often emotionally charged issues, you need an attorney that is highly experienced in working with these types of cases. Attorney Freyberg can bring his 30+ years of experience in the family court system to help both parties deal with these issues calmly and amicably.

Modifications: If there has been a substantial change in circumstances in your financial situation or in your life following a dissolution of marriage or final judgment of paternity, you have the right to request a modification to any court orders regarding child support, alimony, or the Parenting Plan. Attorney Freyberg can help you seek and obtain modifications to orders governing child custody, visitation, child support and alimony. He will also help you to seek enforcement of any orders that are not being followed.

Paternity: Attorney Freyberg represents both men and women in paternity actions. He can help you, whether you are attempting to prove paternity to get child support or custody and visitation rights or you are seeking to challenge an assertion of fatherhood.

It is very important to resolve any paternity doubts and establish legal paternity as soon as possible after a child is born. Attorney Freyberg can help you establish legal paternity of your child and establish time sharing and visitation schedules.

Child support: In Florida, child support is calculated using a formula based on the net incomes of the parents, the degree of time sharing, and day care and health insurance costs. He will ensure that the formula is correctly administered and that all relevant income, deductions, and other factors are properly considered.

Attorney Freyberg can also represent you when it comes time to modify an existing child support agreement, seek enforcement of an existing child support agreement, or even defend you in the event you are being sued for child support.

Alimony: A grant of alimony or spousal support is not automatic in Florida. Whether you are the party seeking alimony or the party from whom alimony is being sought, attorney Freyberg will help you look at the factors the courts consider in granting alimony.

In the State of Florida, the primary consideration for the court in awarding alimony is the need of the spouse seeking alimony and the ability to pay of the other spouse.  A significant income gap between the divorcing spouses, the roles of the parties in child-rearing, the overall assets of each party, the health of the parties, and the standard of living enjoyed by the parties during the marriage are all significant factors to be evaluated. 

Prenuptial/postnuptial agreements: If you are married, or are considering marriage, and have substantial assets, attorney Freyberg can help you prepare an agreement that governs the division of your assets upon death, divorce, incapacity or separation.

Property division: Attorney Freyberg will help you arrive at an equitable division of marital debts and assets, including real property, investments, retirement plans and business property. He is also able to assist clients in complex divorces involving high-value assets.

Relocation: If you want to relocate within or outside of Florida and your move will have an effect on existing visitation or custody agreements, there are specific steps you must take to comply with Florida law. Attorney Freyberg will protect your interests, whether you seek to relocate or to prevent relocation, and make sure your actions comply with the law.

Stepparent adoptions: If you have remarried and your new spouse wants to legally adopt your minor children, attorney Freyberg will explain the process, work to gain consent of the natural parent, prepare the necessary paperwork and appear at all hearings on your behalf. He will act as the steward of the adoption process, from the beginning all the way through to the final adoption and issuance of a new birth certificate.

Attorneys fees: In Florida, both parties to a divorce are entitled to equal access to court. If you are unable to retain legal counsel because of your inability to pay, the court can require that your former spouse pay some or all of your attorney fees. He will pursue attorneys fees when appropriate.
