Divorce is the dissolution of a marriage, and it is perhaps the most common family law issue. If you are pursuing a divorce, the first step is to file a formal petition. This petition can include information regarding property claims, child custody, spousal support, attorney fees, and more. Once you've filed a formal petition, your spouse will have 30 days to respond.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree on all terms of the divorce. If you and your spouse are on different pages when it comes to issues of custody, child support, alimony, and more, you will likely have to navigate a contested divorce. In these cases, a judge will be involved in determining the terms of the divorce.
After a divorce or legal separation, most people require assistance from an attorney to divide the marital property. The property at hand can include everything from income and cash to other assets, such as real estate or vehicles.
Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that all your marital property will be equitably or fairly divided. However, that does not always mean it will be divided equally, as equitable division typically does not result in a 50/50 split of assets. A judge will look at several factors when determining the division of property, including each party’s income and earning potential.
Alimony—or spousal support—allows one spouse to continue to receive financial support from the other, either temporarily or permanently. Alimony hearings typically involve an analysis of each spouse's age, debts, income, and other factors.
The beginning of every child custody case typically starts with a state-mandated mediation session. After the initial mediation, either party is allowed to appeal the decision made by the court. The best interests of the child or children involved will be the determining factor in the creation of a custody arrangement.
We take on establishing and executing child support agreements for families in Leesburg, Florida, and beyond. Child support may be required of one or more parties in a divorce or separation case.
