Divorce / Dissolution of Marriage

Divorce is a stressful and emotional experience -- no matter who is seeking the divorce or the reasons doing so. We understand that you need support and guidance throughout the process to understand your options and plan your future.

We also understand that the decisions that must be made are interrelated; for example, the amount of alimony awarded will impact the amount of child support. In addition, decisions must be made as to how the marital assets are to be equitably divided, as well as whether any assets can be classified as non-marital.

We can assist you in navigating all the aspects of a divorce (dissolution of marriage), including issues regarding:
  • Division of Assets and Property/Equitable Distribution
  • Custody of children
  • Timesharing/Visitation/Parenting Plans
  • Child Support
  • Alimony/Spousal Support
We believe in forcefully protecting your rights, but we also realize that in cases involving children, you and your spouse need to maintain the ability to communicate after the case is done and the Final Judgment is entered.
 
The Courts in Florida also require mediation prior to holding hearings and trial. We work to get to mediation early in the case, but after we have received sufficient discovery, to make mediation fruitful and resolve as many issues as is practicable. At the end of the day, we believe that your assets should be available to be divided, and not be drained by unnecessary litigation expenses.
 
 The Collaborative Law process is also available as an alternative to litigation. Through the Collaborative Law Process, parties who are represented by counsel meet together with counsel and professional neutrals to resolve all issues in a case. It is a beneficial and often cost-saving option. In addition, it assists parties in focusing on the future in a goal-oriented approach, often helping the parties to establish a working relationship with each other. In families with children, it greatly assists in preserving stability for the children.
