Family Law Attorney Orlando

Divorce

In Florida, a divorce is granted when the court finds that the marriage is “irretrievably” broken- this means the bonds of marriage is beyond reconcile. Florida is a no-fault state, this means that the Court will grant a divorce regardless of who is at fault. Not all divorces are the same, each divorce case varies in difficulty depending on the issues involved. Our divorce attorney has handled divorce cases that range from simple to complex. Some of the divorces we have handled fall in the following categories:
 

Simplified Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce)

  • No children involved

  • No division of real or personal property

  • Each party waives their right to alimony and equitable distribution

  • Each party pays their own court cost and attorney’s fee


Moderate Level Divorce

  • Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Dependent or Minor Child(ren)

  • Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Property and Dependent or Minor Child(ren)

  • Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Property but no Dependent or Minor Children

  • Moderate level does not have any relationship with the length of your marriage, only issues that are involved
     

Complex Divorce

  • Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with Children, Property and Business Interest help by one or both spouses

  • Valuation of business assets

  • Dispute over enhancement/appreciation of a pre-marital real property

  • Domestic Violence by one spouse

  • Claim for permanent alimony due to a long-term marriage

  • Claim for alimony because of one spouse’s disability

  • Child Support arrears and garnishment issues

  • litigation to set aside pre-marital agreements

  • Division of multiple different business investments

  • Litigation involving the distribution of multiple real estate properties

We have experience with handling divorce cases with multiple different issues, within the last year, we frequently saw the following issues some of the family law cases we litigated:

  • One spouse invested money in the other spouse’s premarital home after their marriage. The issue then becomes, what portion of the equity is marital asset?

  • Who gets a vehicle that is titled in spouse A’s name but said vehicle has been driven and paid for by spouse B?

  • Which spouse has exclusive use and possession of the marital residence during divorce? Who moves out of the home while the divorce is still pending?

  • One spouse financially cut the other spouse off bank accounts, credit cards and other monetary source while the divorce is pending. How is this prevented in a divorce? Is my spouse allowed to financially cut me off while the divorce is pending?

  • How long does it take to get Alimony or Child Support once a divorce case is filed?

  • How much do I get in Alimony and Child Support?

  • My spouse is hiding money and transferring assets to third parties, how can I find these assets?

  • Who pays the bills during the case?

  • How do I get access to family business during a divorce?

  • How can I protect myself and children from domestic violence by my spouse?

  • Can I relocate with the children to a different state or out of town?

  • We filed joint tax returns and now we owe IRS for back taxes and penalties, this is my spouse faults, what can I do?
