Handling Every Aspect of Divorce

If a divorce has been decided as the best option, some issues that evolve may become complex. In the State of Florida, there are certain minimum requirements that must be met in order for a divorce to occur. You need to know what these requirements are and be certain that you have met them.

We can provide you with answers to a wide range of questions regarding:

Divorces can be very stressful for the individuals involved, especially if there are children, and with the help of a positive, knowledgeable divorce lawyer you can avoid creating more problems or extending the time involved in resolving the critical matters surrounding the case.

No Fault Divorce & Fault Divorce in Florida

In Florida, as in all other states, we have what is known as a "no fault" divorce. In this type of divorce, you do not have to prove that your spouse did something wrong, but must only give the reason you want a divorce such as the marriage being "irretrievably broken".

In a "fault" divorce, you must ask for the divorce to be given on the grounds of a specific fault such as adultery, cruelty, desertion for a specified length of time and others. If there are children involved often one of the first things to decide is whether custody of the children is contested or uncontested.

Definition of Contested & Uncontested Custody

If custody is contested this means you and your spouse have decided that the issues between you cannot be worked out amicably. If custody is uncontested the proceedings can become less complex as you and your spouse have reached an agreement regarding how custody will take place.
