In Florida, the formal term for divorce is “dissolution,” and dissolution is governed by Florida Statutes which are analyzed by the case law from the courts that interpret the statutes. Actually obtaining the dissolution is not difficult, as only one party has to testify that the marriage is over. The major issues in the dissolution are “equitable distribution” (splitting your assets and liabilities), “time-sharing” of the children (formerly “custody”), “alimony,” and “child support.”
Our Family Law attorneys are prepared to assist clients in both uncontested and contested dissolution of marriage actions. Often after receiving legal advice and gaining an understanding of the law, parties can resolve their dissolution issues, resulting in an uncontested divorce where both parties are in agreement on all matters, and the court’s role is to approve their divorce agreement. Unlike an uncontested dissolution of marriage, a contested dissolution of marriage is a divorce in which the parties have not been able to resolve all issues of the case. Divorces may be a time of tension and uncertainty. There are many significant decisions involved in a divorce, and our attorneys help clients achieve the best results possible while guiding the parties through the divorce process.
