We believe that clients benefit from having their cases resolved in an efficient and direct manner. By being efficient we can minimize the emotional and financial costs of your divorce. We understand that you have a lot of decisions to make and we will make sure your concerns are covered:

 

  • Equitable distribution of assets and liabilities

    In Florida, the initial presumption is that all property and debts will be split evenly. This presumption can be modified based on various facts, including a prenuptial agreement or the financial situations of the parties entering the marriage.

  • Alimony

    Spousal support is determined by one party’s need and the other party’s ability to pay. The amount of alimony depends on the length of marriage and financial circumstances. There are different spousal support plans, including permanent, rehabilitative, temporary and lump sum.

  • Child custody and visitation

    There are many types of custody and visitation plans. We will find a plan that protects your rights and works in the best interest of your kids.

  • Attorney’s fees

    We also understand that you are worried about the financial burden of hiring an attorney. As with alimony and support, a divorce attorney’s fees are based on need and ability to pay. By law, parties in a divorce have the right to a same or similar level of legal representation. If there is a major difference in income between spouses, the court will sometimes require the party with higher income to pay some legal fees. We can help you find a solution to your financial concerns.
