All The Moving Parts Of A Divorce
I can knowledgeably guide you to strategies and solutions for every facet of a Florida divorce, which may involve:
- Dividing the marital estate (assets and debts)
- The marital residence and vacation properties
- Parenting arrangements (custody and time sharing)
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Child support and departures from the guidelines
- Temporary orders for custody and/or support
- Awarding of attorney fees
- Legal separation in lieu of divorce
- Uncontested divorce (dissolution of marriage)
- Post-divorce modifications or enforcement
I help you game plan your divorce, from setting goals and strategies to choosing your battles wisely. I am accessible to you throughout the process of dealing with conflicts and decisions as they crop up.
You can be as involved as you want or you can trust me to “handle business” for you.
Encouraging Settlement, But Highly Equipped For Litigation
I have the experience and skill set to proceed with your divorce in a way that is most beneficial to you. As a former mediator certified by the Florida Supreme Court, I may represent you as your attorney in mediation or out-of-court negotiations. Mediation is an amicable, cooperative approach to dispute resolution with the help of a neutral mediator. We predict what would likely happen in court and suggest compromises and creative alternatives to reach a sensible agreement.
I truly do look to resolve amicably. I always start with the intent to save the college money for the kids and spare clients from the acrimony and uncertainty of litigation. But there are certainly times when going to trial is unavoidable or the only strategic option. I have a reputation in the local divorce courts as a skilled and aggressive litigator. I represent many high net worth clients who have complex portfolios and businesses or careers to protect. Even when contested proceedings are necessary, I am resolution-oriented and aim for a swift and cost-efficient conclusion for you.
