Divorce (“Dissolution of Marriage”)
Dissolving a marriage involves a great many variables, high emotions, and fears. We help our clients create strategic plans on how to move their divorces forward in the best way possible. Below are some of the variables we cover:
Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets and Liabilities. Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that assets and liabilities may not necessarily be divided equally between the two spouses. The goal is to divide them fairly. We help with the strategy, negotiations and litigation involved.
Child Custody. Florida no longer provides “custody” to one parent or another, it designates how much timesharing a child will or will not spend with each parent. Parents, or courts when parents cannot agree, are charged with establishing a parenting plan whenever children are concerned. Building a parenting plan that suits your child and family can be challenging and complicated. We help parents plan, negotiate and/or litigate in order to assure the best possible outcome for their children and themselves.
Alimony. Questions surrounding alimony commonly include those surrounding the amount and duration. Florida law requires an establishment of need and ability to pay in order to award alimony. It is imperative that both spouses be well represented when alimony is being considered.
Challenges of Prenuptial Agreements. Not only do we help clients draft pre and postnuptial agreements so that they can proactively protect themselves should a divorce occur, but we also help when a prenup is contested – either by defending it or by challenging it on behalf of our client.
