Parental Rights Serving Families In Palm Beach & Surrounding Areas and Throughout Florida

Palm Beach Parental Rights Lawyers

Protecting the Best Interests of Children in Family Law

Parental rights refer to parents' legal responsibilities and privileges concerning their children's welfare. These rights include the child’s time spent in each parent’s household and parental decision-making related to the child’s healthcare, education, religious upbringing, and other significant issues. 

In Florida, maintaining these rights is often a source of stress in divorce, post-divorce, and paternity cases due to the complexities of the legal process and the emotional tensions involved.

At John F. Schutz, P. L., we can help you protect your parental rights and work to ensure that you are a meaningful part of your children's lives. 

Our skilled family law attorneys are thoroughly versed in child-related issues as monitored by the state of Florida, how to use mediation and collaborative divorce to help you control these rights through negotiation instead of the court’s dictates, or how to litigate these issues at trial. 

Call John F. Schutz, P. L. at (561) 677-2462 or contact us online to reserve your consultation with a Palm Beach parent rights attorney.

Hear From Our Happy Clients

"Genius divorce lawyer"

John Schutz is a brilliant lawyer. Not only did Mr. Schutz do an excellent job cleaning up the mess from the previous lawyer, he in my estimation was key in me ultimately obtaining a very good outcome. I had a very contentious divorce and the opposing lawyer was very unprofessional and somewhat abusive. Mr. Schutz through his professionalism and excellent people skills was able to reign in the opposing attorney's unprofessional conduct. Mr. Schutz ran circles around the opposing attorney as he was always prepared and was quick on his feet. He is well worth the money in my opinion. Due to his skill and the ability to outclass the opposing attorney, a trial was avoided which ultimately would have been far more costly. Highly recommend.
