Dissolving a marriage carries a heavy legal, financial and emotional burden. We understand what’s at stake for your family and future when your marriage ends, so we offer full support with issues such as:
Fear of the unknown often prevents spouses from taking the first step to end a failing marriage. If you believe that the problems cannot be repaired, we’ll outline the divorce process and guide you through each step.
Known in Florida as parenting time and parenting responsibility, respectively, physical and legal custody are decided based on what the court determines to be in the child’s best interests. To give everyone the best chance of moving forward positively, our firm attempts to forge mutually acceptable agreements on issues such as visitation and decision-making authority. If that’s not possible, we’ll present a thorough case to the court for an appropriate parenting plan that meets your child’s physical, emotional and educational needs.
When parents break up, Florida law requires that both contribute to the financial needs of the minor children they share. Even if parents were never married, child support obligations are set based on factors including each parent’s income, childcare costs and medical expenses. Courts use a formula to determine support that covers most families’ situations, but complications often arise. We represent clients when disputes occur over the accuracy of information, a refusal to earn income or other issues. If a change in income or some other life event justifies an adjustment in the child support rate, our firm will help to pursue an appropriate modification. We also vigorously litigate enforcement actions when a party fails to make their ordered payment.
A sound, fair prenuptial agreement can provide both parties with financial security should the relationship end in divorce. Our experienced guidance encourages open communication during the process so that couples establish fair terms concerning property division and alimony. Whether you’re looking for a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial document to address changed financial circumstances, we’ll make sure that each side understands what they’re entitled to if the marriage dissolves.
