Family Law


When the State fights , she fights back harder and she won. Best Attorney in Broward


Going through a divorce can be stressful, difficult, and very emotional. The State of Florida requires that a person filing for a Dissolution of Marriage prove that they have resided in the State for a minimum for six (6) months prior to the date of filing. In addition, the Courts must find that the marriage has irretrievably broken down in order to obtain a divorce.

When you hire a divorce attorney, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have someone who will advocate and protect your interests. At The Hamil Scott Law Firm, we are passionate about protecting your rights and giving you the individualized attention you deserve. 


Alimony, also known as spousal support, can provide you with funds to maintain your standard as you transition out of the marriage. If you believe you should be awarded alimony, you need to show the court that you are in need of these payments and that your spouse is able to pay them. The courts will also take into consideration the duration of the marriage, your income relative to your spouse’s income, and your ability to earn money as you transition out of the marriage.

There are several types of alimony: 

  • Bridge the Gap Alimony

  • Rehabilitative Alimony

  • Permanent Alimony

  • Durational Alimony

  • Temporary Alimony

  • Lump Sum Alimony


At the Hamil Scott Law Firm we will work to ensure that you receive or pay a fair amount of alimony. We invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment for a free consultation.


Parents oftentimes move after a divorce to get a fresh start or for education, job, or health reasons. However, when children are involved, moving becomes more difficult.
Under Florida statute, a parent may not relocate with the minor child to a new location more than fifty miles from their current location without the parent's written consent or a court order authorizing the relocation. Relocation can be a complex legal issue, and divorced parents, more often than not, cannot agree to the relocation terms. 

If you are considering a move with your child, contact our law firm as soon as possible to discuss your legal options and responsibilities with regard to child relocation.


The end of a relationship can be a very stressful and difficult time in anyone's life. When children are involved, the situation is even more difficult. A family attorney can help you handle the transition more smoothly.

Here at The Hamil Scott Law Firm, we are prepared to guide you through this process and explain your rights and responsibilities. Our goal is to ensure that you obtain a fair child support order, whether you are concerned about your rights to receive or your obligation to pay child support.


Child custody, now known as time sharing, can be a very contested area in any divorce proceedings. There are two types of child custody in the State of Florida: sole custody and joint custody.

Every parent loves their children, and the thought of having to share custody with another parent or even losing custody can be a very emotional experience. Our child custody attorney can help you get custody and advocate for you in court.

At the Hamil Scott Law Firm, we are compassionate about our clients and the outcome of their cases. Our firm is committed to guiding you through this challenging process of finalizing a child custody agreement and arriving at the best solutions that will be in the best interests of the child. Call our Coral Springs, FL office and schedule an appointment for a confidential consultation.
