The decision to end your marriage is a difficult and emotional choice. But speaking with a divorce attorney will provide you with valuable knowledge that will help you make the right decisions if you decide to proceed with a dissolution of marriage. Although Florida is an equitable distribution state, meaning marital assets are generally split right down the middle, there may be additional assets that you believe you are entitled to keep. With a background in accounting, we can help protect your assets during a divorce.
A divorce attorney can also help you understand the child support process in Florida when minor children are involved. Florida requires both parents to financially support their children regardless of which parent is the primary custodian. We can calculate what the family court may deem to be your share based on your specific financial situation.
Once the family court issues a child support order, you are legally obligated to make the ordered payments or risk criminal prosecution. If you are subject to a child support order that you are unable to pay, we can help. We can petition the court on your behalf for a child support modification based on your current financial situation.
