Family Law Attorney Tampa, Florida
The area of family law is constantly changing due to new legislation and court rulings. It requires current knowledge of such changes to competently represent clients. Mr. Macaluso has extensive experience in the following areas:
Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage)– Simple and complex cases involving alimony, property distribution, child custody, support and time sharing, residency requirements, relocation.
Post Dissolution Modifications to Final Judgments Involving Child Support, Custody/Time-Sharing, and Alimony– Changes often occur in clients’ family, work, and financial lives after a divorce. Mr. Macaluso has substantial experience dealing with these “change of circumstance” situations which require modifications to final judgments regarding alimony, child support, time-sharing arrangements or other matters related to children. Many child support modification petitions are initiated by the Department of Revenue (DOR) and Mr. Macaluso has vast experience with that agency, DCF, and other state agencies regarding the welfare of children.
Prenuptial Agreements– Agreements between persons seeking to be married. These agreements manage financial issues and/or other personal circumstances in the event of a divorce.
Postnuptial Agreements– Formalizing agreements between spouses regarding financial issues and/or other personal circumstances in the event of a divorce.
Paternity Determination– A matter brought into court to determine the identity of a child’s legal father; either the biological father or mother can initiate a paternity action.
Name Changes– A court procedure to change a person’s name for any lawful purpose such as restoring a woman’s maiden name following a divorce or children assuming the surname of step-parents.
Guardianships of the person/property– Guardianships can be established when a person has become incompetent, or where a minor child is not legally competent to handle his/her affairs.
Dependency Law– We defend parents when the state is trying to remove their child(ren) from the home. We also represent family members or others interested in protective custody of children who may be in danger of neglect, abuse or abandonment.
Domestic Violence Injunctions– Actions brought before the court to prevent or further prohibit acts of domestic violence or to defend against an improper action brought against a person. Either spouse or partner in a relationship can initiate this type of action.
