Dedicated To Your Children’s Well-being

Parents must consider not only how divorce affects them, but also how it affects their children — both emotionally and financially. The Law Office of Robert H. Wood, P.A. in Jacksonville has 22 years of experience in all family law matters. We help you obtain a fair and reasonable child support arrangement that allows you to raise your child in a safe and healthy environment.

We help parents:

  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Negotiate child support through mediation
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Enforce child support orders
  • Modify child support orders


Child Support Guidelines

Florida law establishes general child support guidelines. Our attorneys can help you understand the basis and structure of these guidelines and how they apply to you. We can help you obtain support payments that best accommodate your financial circumstances and most appropriately provide for your child’s needs.

Child Support Settlements Through Mediation

Through the structured process of mediation, couples can put aside their differences and focus on the one objective where they tend to agree — their children’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. We can guide the process toward equitable solutions through mediation.

Litigation of Child Support

In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. We methodically prepare for litigation to achieve the most equitable support arrangement for your child.

Enforcement of Child Support

If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need assistance to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. We guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.

Modification of Child Support

Financial problems may put you in a different financial situation than when child support was originally established. We can help you expeditiously process a modification of your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.

Protecting Your Parental Rights

Child custody is the most important issue a parent faces during divorce. It is important for a child to have time sharing and a relationship with both parents. Unfortunately, some parents will treat the child as a pawn in the conflict between the parents. Our office feels strongly that no parent should be deprived of a relationship with their child by the other parent. You need an attorney committed to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment.   

We have 22 years of experience and stand by your side on all issues of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary or joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child


Mediation: A Tool For Cooperation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. We expertly guide negotiations towards a settlement that protects your child’s best interests and your parental rights.

When Litigation is Necessary

Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests. If negotiations fail or the other parent is a danger to your child’s well-being, the courtroom provides an essential forum for establishing your parental rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval of this time. But with an experienced family law attorney from the Law Office of Robert H. Wood, P.A. by your side, you can feel confident that your that your position will be effectively advocated before the court.
