Kissimmee Divorce Attorney
If you and/or your spouse decide to end your marriage, you likely want your divorce case to go as quickly and smoothly as possible. However, there are many legal requirements you must meet before a Florida court will grant you a divorce. In order to ensure your divorce is as efficient as possible with the fewest possible complications, you should always seek help from a Kissimmee divorce attorney who is highly experienced with Florida family laws.
At Salazar & Kelly Law Group, P.A., we can help you with every stage of your divorce case and provide assistance in any matters that may arise. The following are some brief descriptions of some issues that may need to be addressed in your divorce case.
Property Division – Under Florida law, any marital property – which is property you and your spouse acquired during your marriage – must be divided equitably. What type of property division is equitable can depend on many factors, including whether one spouse is staying in the family home. In addition to dividing property and assets, any marital debts must also be divided in an equitable manner.
Timesharing/Child Custody – If you and your spouse have any children, you will need to have a timesharing, custody, and parenting plan that is acceptable to the courts before you can get divorced. Courts determine what type of custody arrangement is best based on what is in the best interests of the child, which can involve many factors and such determinations can be complicated.
Child Support – Child support in Florida is based on a specific formula set out in state law. The courts will consider the income and expenses of both parents, the custody arrangement between the parents, the needs of the child, and any other relevant factors. While the formula is intended to result in a fair child support order, there can be variables that make certain child support decisions unfair and you should have an attorney who will ensure the child support order is appropriate in your case.
Spousal Support – Spousal support – also known as alimony or maintenance – can be awarded in certain divorce cases in which one spouse cannot support themselves financially for a period of time after the marriage ends. Many factors can be considered when determining whether spousal support should be awarded and how much should be awarded.
In a divorce, it is generally preferable for you and your spouse to work together whenever possible to reach agreements regarding the above issues. If you cannot agree, the court will have to make decisions for you and going to trial can create significant delays and increase the costs of your divorce. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who have many tools to help you and your spouse reach a favorable agreement to avoid court involvement when necessary.
