I was referred to Diane Dylewski from a Child protective Authority. I was told that she was a dedicated, fiesty, intelligent go all out for her client type of lawyer. I paid her $4000!!! Yes I said $4000.!!!! I spoke with her assistant more than I ever spoke with Diane. We never made it to court, I never had a chance with this lawyer!!! I had a child custody case where my son had been taken from me by my ex husband while we were still married, so the cops would not get involved. My ex ran to Ocala with my son and by the time I found out what was going on I had already been listed in the Marion county news paper as "a missing person". I had allegedly abandoned my son. Apparently no one could find me, as if I had fallen off the face of the earth which still trips me out considering the world we live in with the internet and social media. I lived in Miami, Dade county. By the time I found out where my son was (deep in the forest) I was already divorced and lost custody of my son. I hired Diane, she was eager and seemed to be intent on helping me get my son back until she got paid her last penny. Then that was it!! She became impossible to get a hold of, she became very discouraging. As it goes, before you can go to court you have to go to mediation. On the day of my mediation, they offered me half summers, every other weekends, and split holidays. I did not want that offer because it was unfair. I cried and asked to use the phone to call my lawyer. When I finally got Diane on the phone and explained to her what was being offered, she told me to take what I could get because I had not paid her enough to go to trial!!!!!! I will never forget the heart wrenching/betrayed feeling I felt! I knew I had gotten no where with her. I bargained back and forth in mediation and worked some things out by myself. Diane did nothing but sit back, collect $4000.00 and allowed her assistant to do all the paperwork/phonecalls. I would never recommend her. I would recommend you go pro se before ever hiring this attorney. She was the biggest let down besides finding out I'd lost my son. I do now have full shared custody of my son but nothing to the thanks of Diane. I'm not trying to slander her name I'm just trying to warn you to do your homework so you don't end up like me...... I wish I knew then what I know now.. What a waste of money and trust.

We used this attorney to help us adopt our grandson. Very open minded and got us through the process as quick as possible and always kept us informed. We were told what to expect and what we may need to do to help. Would definitely recommend this attorney!

This woman has been the best attorney that I have seen when dealing with DCFS....
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
