    Handling Every Aspect of Divorce in Florida

    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:

    We understand that this process can be very stressful for the individuals involved, especially if there are children, and with the help of a positive, knowledgeable divorce lawyer in Fort Myers, you can avoid creating more problems or extending the time involved in resolving the critical matters of 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.

    What makes a divorce contested?

    A divorce is contested when spouses cannot agree on issues which must be resolved before the separation is final.

    These issues can include the following:

    • Child custody
    • Child support
    • Alimony
    • Property division
    • Debt allocation

    If you're unable to settle on agreeable terms with the help of your own attorneys, your divorce will be handled in court. While divorce court isn't for everyone, many couples find that having an impartial third party supervise their affairs is the most effective means of parting ways.

    A divorce that involves high net-worth often winds up in court. It is also not uncommon for custody battles to get pushed into court as well. Your choice of legal representation will inevitably impact whether you have to go to court.

    Is my divorce uncontested if we agree on everything?

    Essentially, yes. Uncontested divorces are much simpler and more peaceful. You and your spouse are able to resolve the terms of your divorce with little fanfare and the end result is one that you both feel comfortable with.

    Uncontested divorces tend to be faster, cheaper, and easier on children. This is why it is imperative to choose a Fort Myers divorce attorney who confidently represents your rights and will ensure that you don't wind up with the short end of the stick.
