Dissolution/Divorce

Overview

Even under the best of circumstances, ending a marriage can be difficult, emotional, and life-altering. Divorce can be one of the most stressful and costly events one can go through in life. It is essential to have the guidance of a trusted and experienced attorney by your side to protect your interests. Failure to obtain experienced and qualified counsel can significantly impact the outcome of your case and your future.

The Family Law attorneys at Kelley Kronenberg are fully prepared to assist clients with all aspects of their divorce and family law issues. We understand the sensitive nature of these cases and have the compassion and experience to help guide our clients through this trying time.

In Florida, the formal term for divorce is “dissolution,” and state statutes govern the dissolution. Obtaining a dissolution of marriage is not difficult as only one party must testify that the marriage is over beyond repair, or irretrievably broken. After receiving legal advice and understanding the basic aspects of the law, parties can often resolve their issues amicably, resulting in an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is where both parties agree on all matters, and the court’s role is to approve their divorce agreement. Unlike an uncontested divorce, a contested divorce is where the parties have not agreed to resolve all their issues. Frequently, the major issues in the divorce are “equitable distribution” (splitting your assets and liabilities), “time-sharing” of the children (commonly known as “custody”), “alimony,” and “child support.”

Our attorneys always aim to advise and provide clients with the most efficient, cost-effective, and innovative ways to settle family law disputes. We are advocates for our clients and have experience in alternative dispute resolution processes, like mediation or the newly recognized “private trials,” which can save the client a tremendous amount of money, time, and emotional trauma.

High-Net-Worth Divorce

While every case has its own unique challenges, a high-net-worth divorce can be particularly complicated and more complex than a traditional divorce. Generally, high-net-worth divorces usually have more issues and therefore are more likely to be contested. With more at stake, these cases require particular attention to detail and expert strategy. Only an attorney with experience handling these types of matters can help you reduce risk, protect your assets, and obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

Our Family Law attorneys have substantial experience providing comprehensive legal services tailored to the particular needs of high-net-worth clients and their families. With decades of experience handling contested divorces and complex financial issues across Florida, we offer superior expertise and utilize sophisticated legal strategies to protect your rights and most valuable assets.

Divorce is a complicated process with serious personal and financial implications, especially for couples who have accumulated significant assets or own a business. There are many important decisions involved which require the dedication and guidance of a skilled and experienced attorney. We are committed to aggressively representing your interests and achieving the best results possible in your case.
