Divorce: Dissolution of Marriage in Florida
AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile Users Can Dial: **CHILD
In Florida a divorce is called “dissolution of marriage”.
The choices that you make during your dissolution of marriage will likely affect every aspect of your life both today and in the distant future.
Our Florida family law lawyers and Florida divorce lawyers can provide privileged and confidential counsel based upon your own personal circumstances with respect, compassion, and assurance of secrecy.
Florida is a no fault divorce state. This means that in Florida, dissolution of marriage does not require a “reason” of justification. Dissolution of marriage in Florida merely requires that one of the parties to the marriage claim that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Either spouse can file for the dissolution of marriage.
In addition to the claim by one party that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the party requesting the divorce must prove that a marriage exists and that at least one party has been a Florida resident for six months immediately preceding the filing of the petition for dissolution.
Although this may sound simple, the dissolution of marriage process can be highly emotional and traumatic for couples as well as their children. Spouses often do not know their legal rights and obligations. Court clerks and judges can answer some basic questions but cannot give legal advice. Only a licensed Florida family law attorney can provide legal advice. Statutory requirements and court rules must be strictly followed or you may lose assets or important alimony or child rights on a permanent basis.
Our Florida family law lawyers can answer your legal questions, including rights and responsibilities in your unique circumstance. There is no “one size fits all” dissolution of marriage.
Divorce is a turning point in your life that many people put off for too long for fear or dread of the process. If you decide to proceed with your dissolution of marriage, our Florida divorce attorneys will be compassionate and respectful in the zealous advocacy of your rights.
Our tailored and responsive approach to the hardship of dissolution of marriage is goal oriented. We don’t want to fight, but we will fight back to defend your rights to get what you deserve and give you a fresh start.
This is why it is vital to have an experienced attorney to represent your best interest in a divorce. Even in a divorce where both parties are amicable, it is vital to have a neutral party to speak up on your behalf and assess whether the arrangements made are fair to both parties.
