Do I Need a Divorce?
In Florida, a marriage is a legal relationship between a man and a woman or in some jurisdictions between two people. In order to dissolve your marriage, a divorce petition must be filed with a Florida court. Pursuing a divorce is a stressful event filled with difficult choices and risks. We will help you understand your rights, obligations, and other options to help you make good decisions regarding your divorce.
Where Do I Start?
A personal conference with an experienced attorney is the place to start your divorce. Our law firm will explain and help you understand the choices available in divorce. Most people are not aware of the benefits the legal system can do to help or to protect them. We will make certain that the choices you make are the best choices for you and your family. Your family law matter must be presented to the Court in a way that the Court is made aware what and how much each party contributed to the marriage financially, what was the party’s role with the children, how will each party provide for themselves and the children during the divorce, and what are the children’s needs.
What Choices Do I Have?
We will make sure you know how the law relates to your divorce and your situation. As experienced divorce attorneys, you will know whether you are entitled to alimony while a divorce is pending. You will know how the law relates to a visitation of the children by the parties and the party’s financial responsibility to the children of the marriage. We will discuss and explain the matter of alimony, temporary spousal support, temporary child support, or any other procedures that will benefit your side of the case.
