Divorce is among the most stressful events you will ever have to face. The person whom you thought would have your back for a lifetime has suddenly become a stranger or worse: an enemy. It can be tempting to cede your rights here in the interests of avoiding confrontation, but this almost never serves your best interests or your children’s welfare.
If your divorce becomes contentious and you must go to trial, it is beneficial to have an experienced trial lawyer who can protect your rights. As a former prosecutor and board-certified criminal trial attorney, J. Melanie Slaughter, has the experience and skill you deserve to help you through these tough times.
Our firm can assist you with the following issues:
We can also help you with less common family law-related issues like grandparents’ rights, custody designations that involve an extended family member, challenging temporary injunctions, parental relocations and post-divorce modifications involving child custody, child support and spousal support.
Do not face divorce or other family law matters without an advocate who is firmly on your side. Call the office of j. Melanie Slaughter P.A., in Ocala at 352-789-6363 today to set up a consultation.
