also known as Jim Mullaney
Mr. Mullaney's practice has been solely devoted to Famiy Law since 2000.
You should consider speaking with a Jacksonville divorce lawyer if you are having family law issues in Jacksonville or the surrounding area. The common issues that are handled by a Jacksonville divorce lawyer include divorce, child support, relocation, time sharing (visitation) and alimony.
You will have a much easier time as these issues are resolved and you will tend to get more positive results by hiring a Jacksonville divorce lawyer. Unlike some other firms, when you hire Mr. Mullaney as your Jacksonville divorce lawyer, you get him as your attorney - not an associate with far less experience.
The broader category of Florida Family Law encompasses a wide range of cases and issues, including uncontested divorce, contested divorce, paternity and adoption cases. The issues raised in Florida Family Law cases include: property division, debt division, child support, time sharing (formerly called visitation), child relocation, and alimony. Mr. Mullaney also represent clients in the modification of prior court orders, including those entered in other states.
There is no doubt that involvement in any family law dispute can cause a great deal of stress in your life. Since Mr. Mullaney has exclusively practiced as a Florida Family Law attorney in Jacksonville for over 11 years, he is aware of the emotional toll that these cases can take on clients. With that in mind, his goal is to help clients complete a smooth transition to the next stage of their lives.
In addition to being a Florida Family Law attorney, Mr. Mullaney is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Court Mediator. As a result of his mediation training and experience as a Jacksonville divorce lawyer, he can help the parties (husband and wife, or mother and father) resolve their Florida Family Law dispute through mediation without resorting to litigation. Whether your dispute involves divorce, paternity, child support, alimony, asset division, debt division, visitation or child custody, a mediation may be the answer to resolving your case at lower expense to both parties since the resolution of your case does not involve the hiring of a Jacksonville divorce lawyer.
Once an agreement is reached (with or without mediation), a court order can usually be obtained in about one month for an uncontested divorce and within a few days for an uncontested paternity case. Uncontested divorce and uncontested paternity cases also have the benefit of greatly reduced legal fees.
Not all Florida Family Law matters involve litigation. Mr. Mullaney can also prepare your power of attorney, durable power of attorney, healthcare directive, and living will.
The Law Office of A. James Mullaney, is conveniently located just east of the San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida on Atlantic Boulevard. Free and convenient parking is available at the office.
