DIVORCE & FAMILY LAW
Divorce or "dissolution of marriage" is a difficult process for anyone, but our experienced divorce attorneys at Foote Law Firm will work to make it as "painless" as possible. In Florida there are two kinds of divorce contested and uncontested.
If your divorce is uncontested that means everything is agreed to by both the parties, including, but not limited to, child support, custody and visitation of minor children, who's going to pay for health insurance and uncovered medical expenses, life insurance so that there will be money for children if a parent dies, division of property, division of debts, alimony, (if any) and all other issues.
A contested divorce is where one or more issues cannot be resolved between the couple and it must be resolved through mediation or the court has to decide these issues in a trial.
If you are seeking a divorce there are many complicated issues that should be considered:
- •Child Custody
- •Child Visitation
- •Child Support
- •Child Support Modification
- •Did you have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement?
- •Division of Assets
Do you plan to move out of the state after the divorce?
Florida is a "no-fault" divorce state, which means it is not necessary to prove that your spouse did anything wrong in order to get a divorce. In fact, courts will grant a divorce even if the other spouse does not want to the divorce. All that is required is that you and your spouse must live in Florida for six months prior to seeking a divorce or dissolution of marriage and that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" and one of the parties must testify to that fact under oath.
In you are considering divorce, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that you can learn about your rights and options during this difficult time. The experienced divorce attorneys at Foote Law Firm will insure that you are not alone and help you with these difficult choices that will affect you and your children's lives for a long time to come.
