Family Law

Florida family law is a unique area of law that involves special procedures and complex legal standards that judges must apply. By hiring a law firm with an emphasis on Florida family law, you can feel confident that your advocate has the experience and understanding you need.

Band Law Groups’s Sarasota divorce and family law practice team is led by attorney Melinda Delpech, who has almost 25 years of experience in family law matters. Ms. Delpech recognizes that every case is different. Some disagreements can be resolved amicably, while others can result in protracted legal battles that require zealous and forceful representation. She will take the time to gain an understanding of your circumstances, explain your legal position as it relates to the facts of your case, and then, in consultation with you, recommend the best approach to achieve your objectives.

Florida Divorce, Separation and Family Disputes

Divorce and family law are personal issues with personal consequences. We understand that each case is unique and that you want your attorney to take an individual approach. Our areas of focus include:


Each case is different. Among the legal issues that are often involved in divorce are child support and custody, spousal maintenance (alimony) and division of assets. We can also assist you with post divorce modifications and/or enforcement actions.

Domestic Violence

If you are dealing with issues of domestic violence, you should obtain immediate legal help in order to protect yourself. We can help you file an injunction for protection against domestic violence (commonly called a restraining order) and discuss other legal options with you.


Whether you are seeking to establish legal paternity for your child or someone has filed a paternity suit against you, we will explain your options and the legal consequences. We help fathers enforce and protect their rights and obligations.

Family Agreements

Families and households can establish many agreements through contracts to avoid what might otherwise become a contentious situation in the future. We have experience in drafting prenuptial agreements, "living together" agreements as well as agreements between non-traditional couples.

Legal Separation

When you don't want to go so far as to get a divorce but are looking at separation, we can help guide you through the unique aspects of that process, including children's issues, division of assets and temporary support.
