If you are going through a Divorce, you need an experienced attorney who can fight for your legal rights. Without the proper legal representation, you could be left feeling, emotionally physically, and financially devasted that will have long term negative effects. Ensuring you have the best possible representation during this time is crucial to ensuring you don’t get taken advantage of.

A divorce attorney will act as your legal advocate throughout the process, and educate you on property division, timesharing, alimony, and other aspects of a divorce.

Understanding Your Legal Rights

Florida is what is known as a 50/50 state. This means that you’ll have to differentiate between marital and non-marital property during the divorce proceedings and what is considered marital is split equitably between the parties, unless there is a legal reason not to.

Marital property is anything that you acquired during the marriage. This could be a car you both purchased, a house, interspousal gifts, or even a brand-new TV. Those items will have to be equally divided or sold, and the funds will be given equally to both parties minus any debt associated with the marital property.

Non-marital properties cover anything you owned before the marriage, inheritances, portions of personal injury settlements, workers compensation settlements, etc. Those items/ funds remain with the original owner. However, if non martial assets are comingled, this could make non marital property, marital.  Consult with a qualified divorce attorney to determine if your assets have been comingled.

Negotiating Fair Settlements

The pivotal role of a qualified divorce attorney is to negotiate. In the state of Florida parties are required to mediate. A divorce attorney can dissect the various financial challenges, including alimony, child support, and division of assets.

The goal of a divorce attorney during this process is to reach a final settlement that traditionally reflects fairness and equity in your favor.

Child Custody and Visitation

Never try to negotiate child custody issues without a qualified divorce attorney. Even in the most amicable divorce situations, when a child is involved, things can get messy quickly.

You should always be focused on the best interests of the child. A divorce attorney can craft a quality parenting plan that is clear and precise so that no matter the future, the child’s well-being is always a priority.

Dealing with Conflict and Emotional Stress

Divorce doesn’t have to be difficult, but it’s important that you hire an attorney, who is honest, and can help significantly reduce the emotional stress and conflict by coming up with a prompt and uncostly resolution so that you can move forward with your life.
