The Divorce Process in Florida

A divorce is a stressful process for any family. One home splitting into two can affect your life, your children, your home, and your assets. As you move through the divorce process, it is important to understand each stage of the divorce and how to protect yourself, your children, and your assets. It is also imperative to have an advocate by your side who can properly guide you through the divorce process. Failing to do so may lead to irreversible consequences.

A divorce is unlike any other type of lawsuit. Although a divorce is legally considered a lawsuit, it is not designed to designate winners or losers. Rather, the court is dividing assets, dictating how a parent will spend time with a child, determining if alimony is appropriate, and making other decisions that are usually private personal decisions.

Most people do not want to get divorced, but at some point in time they realize that divorce is their only option. We often ask our clients, is your marriage in the emergency room or the morgue? If the answer is the morgue, then it is time to consider moving forward with a divorce. If not, reevaluate all options before moving forward with a divorce to determine whether your marriage is salvageable.
