McNamara, Lycans & Sholar, P.C. has served families in Jacksonville for 17 years. Our family law attorneys provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:

Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache.  We assist families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.

Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. At McNamara, Lycans & Sholar, P.C., we help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Our divorce attorneys advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.

Child support
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At McNamara, Lycans & Sholar, P.C., our attorneys  help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Throughout your divorce, our attorneys stand by you. We accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. Our skilled negotiators at McNamara, Lycans & Sholar, P.C. can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
