Winter Park Divorce Attorney
Getting divorced can be a difficult process, both emotionally and logistically. Just as there are specific requirements for a marriage to be legal and valid, Florida law sets out requirements for the dissolution of a marriage to be valid, as well. You must get approval from the courts to end your marriage and you must settle a number of issues before the court will grant your divorce. Even if you and your spouse are ending your relationship on relatively positive terms, you should always have an experienced Winter Park divorce attorney handling your case to protect your rights and best interests.
Guidance in Divorce Proceedings
At Sperling Ducker we help families throughout Florida who need guidance in the divorce process. We provide family law information and assistance that helps our client respond appropriately and time efficiently to their divorce proceedings.
Like many types of legal matters, divorces in Florida involve many procedures, deadlines, and other requirements. Having an attorney on your side who is thoroughly familiar with the legal divorce process can not only ease your stress but can also ensure that you take every step needed for a favorable resolution. We assist you with all paperwork, examine your financial situation, represent you in court hearings, and more. In addition, we seek to reach an efficient and agreeable arrangement through alternate dispute resolution techniques such as mediation or collaborative divorce. We will evaluate your situation to determine which approach is best in your case based on your circumstances.
Winter Park Property Division Attorney
Our Winter Park divorce attorneys have seen and helped many clients and cases. The property that must divided can vary substantially from couple to couple and we take a unique approach in every case to ensure your property is divided equitably as required by Florida law. Some examples of property or debts that may need to be divided include the following:
- Real estate;
- Motor vehicles;
- Recreational vehicles;
- Retirement accounts;
- Jewelry and valuables;
- Personal property;
- Business interests;
- Mortgage and vehicle loans;
- Credit card debt.
While some matters of property division may only involve personal belongings, others can involve high assets, multiple properties, and valuable collections. One of the most important property division issues is what will happen to the family home. This is especially important if there are children involved and you want them to stay in the same community and school district. We have helped families dealing with a massive loan on their homes, or for some other reason can’t afford to buy out the other parent. We have represented and advised clients in various cases involving property division, and ensured appropriate time frames between the trial date and the evacuation date. No matter what your situation may be with your home or other property, we can help you with creative problem-solving that results in a fair and favorable division. We provide attentive and compassionate attention to our client’s needs and look for solutions that help everyone rather than just one side of the issue. This approach can often encourage and facilitate cooperation between parties to reduce the cost and stress of the property division process.
Winter Park Alimony and Child Support
In many divorce cases, the focus tends to stay directed on the financial and property division. Fighting a divorce can become a very expensive case. In our practice, we try to share that focus with the children involved in divorce. Our Winter Park divorce attorneys believe that litigation and divorce affects the children involved as much as their parents and property division. We can provide alternatives that are helpful to children, as well as the rest of the family involved in a divorce. We have successfully guided families through settlement proceedings that have been beneficial to all family members. We have helped parents establish a financial foundation that help provide for the children’s future after the divorce. Issues such as child custody, time-sharing, visitation, and child support can directly impact the lives of your children for years to come, so we take these matters extremely seriously and handle them with the utmost of care.
