Benefits of Legal Representation in the Family Court System
It is always advisable to secure legal representation for any type of civil case, and this is especially true for family court cases. The emotional aspects of these matters can be especially challenging for some clients, and it’s also possible for anyone facing a family court case to make unintentional mistakes in their proceedings if they do not have legal counsel advising them. Choosing the right attorney could be one of the most important decisions you make regarding your impending case for several reasons.
Any family court case requires strict and specific procedural requirements from the court. You may need to file specific forms with supporting documentation by certain deadlines, and your case may also demand filing pretrial motions. While it is technically possible for someone to represent themselves in family court, anyone who does not have extensive professional legal experience faces enormous challenges if they attempt this. Even if they managed to navigate to a conclusion, they would be unlikely to secure as favorable of a result as a Florida family law attorney could have secured.
When you choose Johnson O’Keefe to represent you in Florida family court, you will have a reliable legal advocate ready to assist with every facet of your case.

Ending a marriage is never easy, and Johnson O’Keefe can provide the comprehensive and compassionate representation you need to address the various unique aspects of your dissolution proceedings. In addition, reliable legal counsel ensures you meet all applicable deadlines and have the best chance of reaching a favorable conclusion to your case.
Child custody. Resolving custody disputes between divorcing parents typically unfolds through dissolution proceedings, but unmarried parents may also need to legally resolve custody. Again, the Florida family court must rule in favor of the child’s best interests, and Johnson O’Keefe can help a parent make a compelling case for custody.
Property division and spousal support. One of the most contentious aspects of a divorce is the financial effects on the spouses. Johnson O’Keefe can assist a client in addressing the division of property under Illinois’ equitable distribution law and assess whether spousal support should come into play in your divorce.
If you have a standing family court order, but you can no longer abide by its terms due to forces beyond your control, the modification process allows for reasonable changes in these situations. Johnson O’Keefe can help you craft a petition for modification or prepare a response to another party’s modification petition.
Divorce mediation. You do not need to resolve your divorce entirely through litigation as long as you and your spouse are both willing to negotiate. Johnson O’Keefe specializes in divorce mediation in Florida, helping clients reach more favorable outcomes in their divorces and making the dissolution process easier and more efficient.
Estate planning. Any family court case’s outcome can influence any estate plans you have in place. Whether you need to craft a new estate plan or need to adjust an existing one following a divorce or other major life event, we can help.
Domestic violence. Unfortunately, thousands of people in Illinois experience domestic violence of all kinds every day.
