Experienced Legal Guidance For Life’s Uncertainties

Providing Knowledgeable And Caring Representation For All Your Family Law Needs

You don’t have to face a family law dispute alone. While nothing can make these experiences easy or pain-free, it can be incredibly helpful and reassuring to work with an experienced family law attorney. No matter where you live in Florida, you can find such an attorney by contacting the Law Office of Tyler Gordon, P.A.

Earlier in my career, I worked for large and prestigious firms in the Tampa Bay area. I decided to open my own practice so that I could give clients the personalized advocacy they need and deserve. When you work with me, you get the experience and knowledge of a large firm with the service and attention that smaller practices typically provide.

Quality Service. Rapid Response. Reasonable Fees.

I believe that quality service and rapid response are critical and should be a given, but what about reasonable fees? Whenever possible, I will try to quote a fixed fee for a limited engagement if that is desired, but often the time involved with a contested matter (or any matter) cannot be anticipated and a reasonable hourly rate must be used to augment the initial retainer.

Here are six broad categories of services that I provide:

Protecting Your Children And Your Rights As A Parent

Issues related to children are among the most stressful and contentious in family law. I understand how difficult this time is for you, and I will be an advocate for you and your children in disputes related to:

Child custody and visitation: Legal changes enacted in 2023 require courts to begin with the presumption that parents will have equal time with their children. It is possible to deviate from this if one parent can present a compelling reason for doing so.

Child support: Florida parents have a dual responsibility to financially provide for their children. Whether you expect to pay or receive child support, I will help you seek an amount that meets the needs of your children and is fair and sustainable for all involved.

Adoption: The help of a lawyer can greatly simplify the adoption of a newborn baby, stepchild or an extended family member.

Paternity matters: When the parent of a child is never married, establishing paternity is often a necessary step before imposing child support obligations or recognizing custody and visitation rights. Legal reforms enacted in recent years have made this process easier.

Seeking To Modify Court Orders And Legal Documents

Orders related to child custody, child support, and alimony can be modified if either party has experienced a significant change in circumstances or the needs of children have changed. I am ready to represent you in petitioning the court for a modification or seeking to prevent one, depending on your position. As an experienced estate planning lawyer, I can also help you update estate planning documents to reflect the changes in your family life.
