Divorce

 

Florida is a no-fault divorce state, recognizing that sometimes, two spouses may no longer wish to be married, whether or not there are aggravating circumstances such as infidelity or abuse.  Though the overall process is followed in most cases, your specific situation will determine the course, length, and outcome of your divorce.  Your divorce will finalize the following as applicable to your situation:

  • Parenting plan

  • Equitable division of assets and debt

  • Alimony/spousal support

  • Child support

  • Any other issues

Please fill out this form to begin the process. 

 

Paternity

 

Paternity cases involve two parties who share a child but who are unmarried.  This type of case allows the parties to establish a parenting plan and child support to ensure the child is able to have a relationship with both parents based on what is in the child’s best interests.  The court judges the best interests based upon many statutory factors as applied to the facts of the specific case, and no two cases are alike.

 

Child Support Modification 

 

If there has been a “substantial change in circumstances” that impacts your child, such as a decrease or increase in income or an extended change in your time-sharing, you may be eligible to petition the court to change your child support or your parenting plan.  Like other family law matters, your eligibility depends upon the specific facts of your case.
