As a family law attorney with offices in Fort Lauderdale and Weston, the most common question I am asked during an initial divorce interview (where the parties have minor children) is, “What will I owe in child support?” or “What will my spouse owe me in child support?”
As a Broward County criminal defense attorney, many of my drug-related cases involve individuals who after being pulled over for a routine traffic violation (i.e. speeding), were subsequently arrested for possessing a few (i.e. one or two) loose oxycodone or xanax pills without an accompanying prescription.
Is Child Support calculated by statutory guidelines?
Yes. Child support is a factor of both: (1) the combined monthly net income of the parties; and (2) the number of (minor) children.
The higher the parties’ combined net income – the more the parties pay in child support. The more children – the more the parties pay in child support.
As a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney, I receive my fair share of driving while under the influence (DUI) cases. Surprising to some, DUI cases can be extremely complicated, especially to novice defense attorneys. DUI cases involve a variety of evidence, including observations of the accused’s behavior (i.e. red, watery, bloodshot eyes), field sobriety exercise results, statements, chemical testing, etc. There is good news for individuals arrested for DUI: an experienced Broward County criminal defense attorney can seek to suppress evidence procured in the case, typically by filing a “stop motion”
As a Broward County personal injury attorney, I am oftentimes asked by potential clients, “Am I the BEST personal injury attorney in Broward County?” My response is always the same, “I am very experienced and have excellent credentials and, as such, may be the BEST personal injury attorney for this case depending on your specific needs and wants.” Since every client has different needs and wants, no one personal injury attorney can claim to be the BEST for everyone all the time. I created this brief cheat sheet citing factors a potential client should seek when hiring the BEST personal injury attorney for their specific needs and wants. Each potential client will weigh the factors below differently which is why there are many BEST personal injury attorneys in Broward County.
