Pre-Divorce Consultation and Planning
If you are contemplating divorce, meeting with an experienced divorce lawyer can help you decide the best course of action. You may be able to take an alternative route to litigation, such as mediation or collaborative divorce. Pre-divorce planning can also help you protect your assets and your family.
Florida statutes refer to divorce as “marriage dissolution.” It ends a marriage and, in certain ways, changes the lifestyle that went with it. By working closely with our family law attorneys, you may be able to preserve many assets, minimize tax consequences and in some cases, even keep the family home.
Parents love their children and often want to spend as much time with them as possible. One of the most difficult aspects of divorce is working out a parenting plan (visitation rights and custody) and arranging schedules in the children’s best interests yet also accommodating demands on parents’ lives. Options include sole custody, joint custody and rotating custody.
Calculating child support payments can be confusing, but a Tampa child support lawyer can help you reach the correct figure. Later down the road, you may need to enforce, modify, or challenge child support payments.
Equitable Distribution of Assets and Liabilities
Equitable distribution is the distribution of assets, debts, and property between spouses in a divorce. However, “equitable” does not mean “equal” – it means “fair”. In other words, it’s not as easy as splitting everything straight down the middle. A divorce lawyer can help you reach the fairest equitable distribution settlement possible.
Today, with both spouses often working, not every divorce involves alimony. The crucial factors in determining alimony are the extent of a spouse’s inability to be self-supportive along with the lifestyle previously maintained during the marriage.
Alimony or spousal support, whether temporary or permanent, is meant to help a spouse continue to enjoy a standard of living similar to what was enjoyed during the marriage.
A court order that initially works well may not continue to serve your needs or the needs of the children without adjustment. We handle all types of divorce modifications.
Divorce decrees are legal orders. Those who choose not to follow an order may be held in contempt of court.
In Florida, the court will find out who the father is and then order him to provide the most support possible for the child. Legal representation in Florida paternity cases is critical.
A neutral third-party mediator can help you decide what happens to your assets and your children post-divorce. Divorce mediation is a faster and more affordable alternative to a litigated case that typically results in better outcomes for both parties involved.
An alternative to a traditional courtroom divorce, collaborative law allows for better communications in a less combative environment. A team of neutral attorneys and professionals work together to ensure that both parties have their voices heard and have their long-term needs met.
Making child visitation arrangements work for the parents and focus on the needs of the children is always a challenge. We have extensive experience handling that challenge, and creating strong arrangements that best serve all of the interests involved.
Domestic Violence Injunctions
Our legal team can help you get a restraining order against your abuser that prevents them from contacting you at work or at home or being within a certain distance of your location. A restraining order can also be used to prohibit communication via text or email.
