A law firm experienced in all phases of the Florida divorce process
A divorce can be a long, drawn-out process, and many matters may be unresolved years later. Our firm gives clients straightforward advice and efficient solutions to help them move beyond those problems. Areas of family law we often handle include:
- Divorce — Divorce in Florida is sometimes referred to as dissolution of marriage. It can be complicated if former partners do not agree on certain issues. However, a simplified dissolution of marriage is available for those with no minor children who agree on the division of assets. Sometimes called an uncontested dissolution, this is an efficient option for people who are separating amicably.
- Distribution of marital assets — Often, spouses accumulate a lot of assets during the marriage. If they divorce, income, savings and real property, such as houses and land, must be distributed. Florida courts start with the assumption that the property should be divided equally and then alter the percentage each spouse receives based on a wide variety of factors.
- Parenting time — Also known as visitation, parenting time is determined by a parenting plan that the parties must file with the court. The parenting plan outlines how a child’s parents plan to handle the basic duties involved with raising the child.
- Child custody — Florida courts determine child custody by considering the best interests of the child. They weigh a number of factors while keeping in mind that each parent has a right to be involved in the child’s upbringing.
- Child support — A parent who is awarded primary custody may also be awarded support payments so a child’s basic needs can be met. The support amount can be changed by court order if either the paying party or the receiving party can show a substantial change in circumstances.
- Alimony — Florida courts can order one party to make payments to the other following a divorce. Alimony is meant to give the receiving spouse the financial support required to transition to independence. Among others, courts can award durational or permanent alimony.
