If you need a divorce attorney, you want to retain one with experience who understands the anxieties and fears that accompany the decision to separate from your spouse or the forced realization that you are being separated. Meeting financial obligations, such as a mortgage, rent, car, or insurance payments, are all valid concerns. Having sufficient funds for basic needs, such as food, clothing, medication, gas money, and a phone, all factor into the settlement of a dissolution of marriage. In marriages where the couple shares minor children, there are added concerns over custodial time sharing arrangements and child support. The need to protect children from physical, mental and emotional harm is a priority in high-conflict marriages. Second and third marriages with stepchildren have many complexities and require solid legal counsel.

Taking the First Steps
Our attorneys know the importance of taking immediate action to address concerns that may impact the family’s safety and economic stability. We can file for temporary custody orders and establish support payments while the divorce is pending. Every family dynamic and financial arrangement between a couple is unique. In some cases, one spouse relied on the other for their sole means of support. For others, the couple’s combined income allowed for the standard of living, and others fall somewhere in between. Determining the entitlement for spousal support is essential for securing temporary alimony during a divorce action.
The process of dividing assets and liabilities in Florida, is called Equitable Distribution. Taking steps to address our client’s short-term needs is essential. However, our divorce attorneys also know that their long-term needs are an equally vital consideration. Debts, liabilities, assets, and property must be protected, accounted for, and distributed correctly and equitably. Equitable means that there should be a fair division of marital assets and it is the standard procedure during the dissolution of a marriage. Virtually anything that is owned, or owed, including a business, and other loans could be declared marital assets or liabilities if there is a failure to prove otherwise or there is no prenuptial agreement.
