Contested Vs. Uncontested Divorces

Our Broward and Miami-Dade County Divorce Attorneys handle both contested and uncontested divorces. When possible, many couples prefer uncontested divorces. If you go this route, you will settle all matters without having to litigate the divorce in court. You don’t have to be on the same page when you separate to get an uncontested divorce. Instead, our certified mediators can guide you to a resolution, or you can retain our attorney to represent you. Once you come to an agreement, we can submit it to court for final approval.

Unfortunately, there are parties who cannot agree, even with mediation. In this case, you’ll need to pursue a contested divorce. You might continue to try mediation as you get closer to your court date. However, if you still cannot reach an agreement, your attorney will represent you in front of the judge. Most often, cases have to go to court due to disagreements over property division, child custody, and child support issues.

High-net-worth Divorces

High-net-worth divorces can be quite complicated. Classifying and valuing the property, wading through stock portfolios, and looking for hidden assets are just some of the challenges that can arise during these divorces. Additionally, there can be issues involving spousal maintenance and child support. With so many complicated factors, it’s wise to hire a Divorce Attorney for assistance. 

Our firm works with teams of experts, including forensic accountants and tax professionals, to help clients work toward the desired outcome. We also understand the need for discretion in these divorce cases. We will strive to protect you, your assets, and your privacy during this difficult time. Read More

What is a Divorce?

Equitable Distribution

Florida is an equitable distribution state regarding marital assets and debts. Typically, the court splits assets and debts down the middle, meaning each party gets 50 percent. However, sometimes, that isn’t an equitable split. If that’s the case, the court might decide to grant more property or a larger share of the debt to one person. Your attorney can evaluate your situation to determine what’s fair and equitable. Additionally, your lawyer will help you categorize the property, so you don’t have to share assets that you owned prior to the marriage. Contact our Broward and Miami-Dade County Divorce Attorneys today to learn more.

Do You Need To Prove Fault?

While some states require that you prove fault to get a divorce, that’s not the case in Florida. Instead, you just need to state the marriage is irretrievably broken. Then, you can end the marriage, even if the other party doesn’t want to divorce. While you don’t need to prove fault, the other party’s actions can impact child support, custody, alimony, and the division of property. Thus, you’ll want to discuss the factors involved in the separation with your divorce attorney.
