ROBERT SCOTT HANNAN limits his practice to Family Law and was formerly a State and County Child Support/Alimony Prosecutor. He has practiced in Fort Lauderdale for 30 years and grew up in South Florida. For the last approximate 1 year, Mr. Hannan has been practicing primarily in Melbourne and the surrounding communities.

Mr. Hannan has handled many hundreds of Family Law cases from straight forward and simple divorces to complex divorces involving custody disputes, significant incomes, assets and liabilities often requiring the use of experts such as Forensic Accountants, Business Valuation Professionals, Parenting Coordinators and Child Psychologists.

As well, Mr. Hannan has handled nearly all other aspects of Family Law cases involving Visitation (Time- Sharing), Support issues (Alimony and Child Support), Relocation, (including international relocation), Domestic Violence, along with a diverse variety of other Family Law issues.

Mr. Hannan received his undergraduate degree from Florida State University and his Juris Doctorate from Ohio Northern University. Mr. Hannan has been an active member of the Florida Bar since 1988 and is a member of the Family Law sections of the Florida and American Bar Associations. Mr. Hannan previously served on the Family Law Legislative Committee of the Florida Trial Lawyers Association

Mr. Hannan previously represented what is now known as the Florida Department of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement Program, (DOR). His firm, Hannan and Rieman, PA, was responsible for enforcing and/or modifying approximately 30,000 divorce and paternity decrees from throughout Florida and the United States. Additionally, Mr. Hannan previously represented parents on behalf the Dade County State Attorney's Office, Child Support Enforcement Program, as well as parents on behalf of the Broward County Support Enforcement Division, (SED). Mr. Hannan no longer represents Government Agencies and has dedicated his private practice to Family Law cases only. Child support and alimony enforcement cases along with child support and alimony modification cases account for a higher than usual number of cases currently being handled by Mr. Hannan due to these difficult economic times. Mr. Hannan welcomes Child Support and Alimony cases where the client is defending Motions for Contempt or Supplemental Petitions for Modification.

Mr. Hannan is a caring and understanding attorney who himself is a divorced Father. Mr. Hannan will throughly listen to your concerns, hopes, and fears and take the time necessary to see the issues as you see them. This is key. Beyond considering the purely legal issues, Mr. Hannan will consider and discuss factors which are non-legal, such as the inter-personal dynamics and potential fallout of certain legal avenues. He will then discuss your options, intended or anticipated results, and how best to proceed. For instance, is mediation possible or must the matter be litigated? If 1itigation is sought, then Mr. Hannan will aggressively and tenaciously litigate the matter in Court. After all, Divorce Attorneys are Trial Attorneys.

Kindness and wisdom during a difficult time
I consider myself very fortunate to have found such an outstanding attorney to handle my pending divorce. Attorney Hannon was extremely easy to talk to and provided such sound advice that I felt my anxiety fade. My situation is somewhat unique, as my husband left Florida and moved to California. Attorney Hannon clearly and carefully explained all possible options, including the difficulty inherent in my case due to various non-joint financial accounts. Additionally, he helped me understand the various twists and turns involved in Pension accounts and QDRO issues. While the divorce hasn't been filed yet, I firmly believe that Attorney Hannon will make sure that my situation is properly, amicably and quickly resolved.

Want Someone on Your Side?
Robert came to me highly recommended by another local attorney. Thank God for busy schedules because her recommendation was my salvation. Mr. Hannan listened to my issues and looked at my case with understanding and compassion. In the post Covid era things that used to take 6 months went on for close to three years. Mr. Hannon never wavered. Not once. I wanted someone to help my family and fight for our beliefs and our concerns. He had a way of cutting through the nonsense and getting his point across immediately. That’s who I am also so we meshed well together. When he saw the opportunity to possibly settle an unsettle-able case. He made the magic happen. Case closed. Settlement favorable. He is surrounded by a wonderful staff that answered all of my questions and concerns the same day. I don’t do reviews. I’m not that guy. Today I am. If your searching and looking, if you’re confused, stop. Read my words and make the call. You will not regret it. I didn’t. Thank you Robert. I have no doubt that you will be representing us again in the future.

Things Get Done With Robert Hannan!
In 2005, I thought my life was over. As a young man with only my children's interest in mind, I consulted with many attorneys and found Robert Hannan to be the most experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney. Not only was I facing a divorce but a pending paternity case with my ex girlfriend. I appreciate the time he took to explain everything about the cases including court procedures. Without the help of Mr. Hannan, I know that I would not have had such successful outcome. He was a constant calming and confident presence during a difficult and lengthy court proceeding that ultimately ruled in my favor. He looked out for our best interest resulting in joint custody, extremely reasonable child support, no alimony and retaining my marital home 100%. Above all, I'm grateful for his reasonable attorney fees. I highly recommend Robert.

Being confident in your choice is what you want isn't it?
You’re making one of the biggest choices of your life and you’re here looking for proof that if you hire Robert Hannan, you will get what you want in your divorce settlement. Every family and divorce is different. My review cant promise that if you hire Robert you will have that result but I can write the review I wish I had been able to read. Robert heard and validated the things that were most important to me. He was honest about my chances in being successful in getting those things and promised to advocate for them even though it would not be easy. AND he did! I didn’t get the parenting that I set out for BUT with Robert's skill set I was able to compromise on the next best parenting plan for my family and it is one that am very happy with. Robert advocated for the things that weren’t as important to me because HE knew they were important. He was able to compromise on a settlement that was beyond what I would have ever expected or asked for for myself. Without Robert, I would have sold myself very short. Robert truly was a sound voice of reason from beginning to end. When he tells you not to worry, it’s his job and he will take care of it, he will. He did not let anyone walk all over me, he advocated for what was fair. Robert will tell you from the beginning he doesn’t want you to go broke through this process, he’s was very conscientious about making this as affordable as possible. His goal from the beginning was to settle in mediation and we did. There are no winners in divorce and it’s really not a situation to gloat about but I walked away 10,000 percent confident that I made the right choice when I hired Robert and his firm (thank you Shelby and Sara for your hard work!) Being THAT confident in who you hire is what you want isn't it?

Robert Hannan is an up front attorney that gives his clients extremely realistic and helpful.assistance.
I need some legal help with a case and sort out some legal advice. Atty Robert Hannan provided me with legal advice based on his many years of experience. He told me the honest facts relating to the law; and did not just tell me what I wanted to hear. I am very pleased and satisfied with his advice and would work with him again and would highly recommend him.

THE BEST!!!!!
All i can say is hands down this guy is amazing. During my custody battle for my son this man was truly professional and also really supportive. His advice was always on point. I retained him at-least 8 times in the 6 years we fought for this custody. Honestly when i had no hope of keeping my son safe this man gave me the light at the end of the tunnel. When i was truly thinking I couldn't go through another day he delivered not once but every single time. Robert my son turned out to be a great young man i have you to thank for part of that. Thank you again for all that you did for me.

Heart, Smarts and Experience
Robert has been an angel through my recent divorce issues. Although he was recovering from being sick and catching up on a lot of work because he’d been sick, he took time out of his busy day to listen to my situation. He was very empathetic and, although he was not available to represent me in the upcoming hearing just a few days away, he made referral after referral to help me until I finally found another great lawyer who was available. He gave me guidance on what characteristics I should look for in a lawyer for my particular case, encouraged me to keep him posted on my situation, and has even called me back in his free time on a weekend to answer questions. I don’t know how he could manage to give this kind of care and attention to everyone who is NOT even a client, but if he hadn’t already helped me find such an excellent lawyer I would be hiring him in a heartbeat. If you are looking for empathy, smarts, experience and someone who shows they really care about the outcome of your case, Robert checks all the boxes.

Highly Experienced Lawyer
I've been dealing with the Dept. of Revenue for many years and have had to deal with many attorneys in Brevard County. I recently needed an attorney and hired Mr. Hannan. He helped resolve my case and I was VERY happy with his work and the results. He took a personal interest in my case and worked hard to get my case resolved in my favor. His fees were very reasonable and I would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients.

Highly recommend
A dear friend received a summons and did not know where to begin. At first, we thought we could handle this on our own, but quickly realized the stakes were too high. When I contacted Mr. Hannan, he quickly put our minds to rest. He and his staff handled the case professionally and efficently. His experience with the child support system was extremely helpful. My friend's case was a success and she has renewed confidence in her legal position and the well being of her children. I would definitely recommend Mr. Hannan.
