Why a Custody Attorney in Tampa is Crucial if You Have Children


When it comes to our little ones, we’re willing to go to the ends of the earth. As parents, we know our top priority is ensuring their needs are being met in a healthy and loving environment. Divorce is overwhelming enough, but when it comes to making the right choices for our children, it’s can quickly become acrimonious. Choosing an experienced custody attorney in Tampa is by far the most important decision you’ll have to make. Ayo and Iken has a team of attorney experienced in all child support matters. We have multiple attorneys that regularly practice custody matters in the Tampa courts.

Many families are able to devise a parenting plan. This is a document, or contract, drawn up by lawyers  that provide the best solutions for co-parenting children. Parents can negotiate things like establishing a bedtime at both homes to ensure consistency, how much TV is acceptable and curfews. This is where our Tampa legal team can make it a smoother process, especially considering divorces are rarely anything but smooth.

Of course, there are those divorces where parenting plans aren’t the best avenue. In those instances, it becomes even more important that you choose experienced legal representation. Everything from visitation to child support to grandparent’s rights must be taken into consideration. You want what’s best for your children; unfortunately, parents can sometimes have two different ideas on what that means.

Florida courts take into consideration those issues such as the environment in the homes of both parties, which parent is best able to provide food, clothing and stability and whether there is a history of alcohol or drug abuse with either parent. If the courts settle custody disputes, there will be contingencies put into place, provided they’re feasible, for children to spend time with both parents.

Finally, it’s important to understand there are definitive rules surrounding the relocation of either parent. These rules kick in if the custodial parent moves more than 50 miles from his or her current address. The courts want agreements to benefit first, the children involved. If the non-custodial parent feels as though the relationship with his or her children would suffer, an objection can be filed.

These are just a few of the realities associated with determining custody in Florida. Our team stands ready to guide you through the intricacies of child custody. Contact us today to schedule a meeting at 800-469-3486

Best attorney I ever met

My business and personal life suffered during the down economy. I was forced to consider business and personal bankruptcy, the loss of my business and the loss of my home. I met with Mr. Ellzey and was surprised he was not mostly interested in taking money. He took the time to listen to my problems and asked a lot of questions about my and my business and my family. After he got the big picture of not only the facts but also of my values and priorities, he suggested to take some action on some things, to wait on other things, and to make good choices as we worked a plan. I worked with Mr. Ellzey over a few years to get out from under a lot of business debt, to keep our kids in school, and to save our home after we thought we were going to lose it. I do not believe sometimes how well things turned out when it all seemed so hopeless before Mr. Ellzey helped us. Above all, he was fair with me, never promised what he could not do, and delivered more than he ever led me to believe he could do.
