What is family law in Florida?

Family law is a broad area of the law that deals with issues related to marriage, divorce, child custody, child support, adoption, and domestic violence. In Florida, family law is governed by the Florida Family Law Code.

The Florida Family Law Code is a comprehensive set of laws that sets forth the rights and responsibilities of spouses, parents, and children. The code also establishes the procedures for resolving family law disputes.

Some of the most common family law issues in Florida include:

  • Marriage: Getting married, annulling a marriage, and getting a divorce
  • Child custody: Deciding who will have custody of a child after a divorce or separation
  • Child support: Figuring out how much child support one parent must pay to the other parent
  • Adoption: The process of legally becoming a parent to a child who is not biologically yours
  • Domestic violence: Protecting victims of domestic violence and holding abusers accountable
