Divorce is a messy affair and working through all the issues that arise is exhausting. There are countless legal steps that must be taken, and even small mistakes can have significant consequences. For example, if you miss a deadline or file a form incorrectly, your case could be dismissed or the court might not approve your request for a change to a legal order. The best way to avoid these costly errors is to work with a Orlando divorce attorney who has extensive experience handling all types of family law cases.
During the interview process, you want to find an attorney who shares your approach to divorce cases and will treat you with compassion and dignity. Consider asking how long they have been in practice and what their success rate is for settling divorce cases without going to trial. You can also ask about their expertise in the particular areas that you need help with, such as child custody or complex property division. Additionally, you might look for a lawyer who has served on bar association family-law committees and has addressed the public on topics related to divorce.
If you and your spouse disagree on one or more of the terms in a divorce, you will have what is known as a contested divorce. The more issues that are contested, the longer it takes to complete the divorce and the more it will cost. In some situations, it may be more beneficial to work with a mediator who can help you reach an agreement on all of the terms in your divorce.
At our firm, we can assist you with all of your family law needs, including divorce litigation, mediation and arbitration, child custody issues, parenting time disputes, spousal support (alimony), separation agreements, and domestic violence and sexual abuse advice. We have years of experience negotiating, litigating, and settling these matters. We understand the sensitive nature of these issues and are committed to helping you find a resolution that is in your best interests and the interests of your children.
We can also help you sidestep Florida’s strict divorce laws by designing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. These agreements can dictate how you and your spouse will divide your assets when you divorce and give you more control over the outcome of your divorce.
