Areas of Law Description
The Divorce Center provides legal representation and services in the following areas of practice:
A Divorce filing can be the single most important event in your life. Make sure you gather lots of information on Florida divorce law and steps in a divorce so you can make informed decisions. Many people can benefit from the advice of a good, honest, loyal divorce attorney. The Divorce Center can provide a divorce attorney that can help you protect yourself. A lawyer is not an expense in a divorce case - they are an investment.
- Child Custody
Child custody is a complex decision and the court must consider a list of factors before making a decision. Each spouse has a great opportunity to educate themselves about child custody factors, and applicable child custody laws. The spouse that successfully does this has the inside track on getting primary custody. More important, that spouse will be doing positive things for their children. A good divorce attorney will work with you in maximizing your chances at keeping or getting primary custody of your children. A combination of properly structured visitation, encouragement of shared parenting, and minimization of conflict are all good for a child and will positively influence a court decision. The Divorce Center provides experienced custody attorneys that can help with child custody in Tampa, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, and Hillsborough, Florida.
- Child Support
Child support law in Florida is one of the most common divorce issues. Before you agree to pay or receive a certain amount of child support payments - always make sure it is calculated correctly. You must be knowledgeable on the latest child support case law for Florida. A good knowledge of child support laws can result in thousands of dollars in savings. The Divorce Center is a Florida law firm emphasizing the practice of family law, and in particular - child support payment issues.
- Asset Division
In a Florida divorce, property division begins at 50/50. Division of debts begins at 50/50. But property division is also called equitable division in Florida. The key is the word "equitable." This means the court is allowed to decide these issues in a way that brings fairness to the outcome. Sometimes this means the split will not be 50/50. A good example is in alimony situations. If one spouse does not have income earning capability, the court may compensate by awarding a larger proportion of assets.
Alimony in Florida is one of the more unpredictable areas of family law. Unlike child support, there is not a guarantee of alimony, nor a set amount if alimony is granted by the court. Calculation of alimony payments is done by examining incomes and available assets. You can have the same set of facts and get 10 different decisions in 10 different courts. Some states have alimony guidelines - providing a specific alimony calculator, but not Florida. Florida alimony statutes require the judge to consider a list of factors when deciding the issue of alimony. Unlike other states, Florida does not embrace the concept of legal separation. That means alimony is rarely, if ever, granted unless a couple is going through the divorce process.
- Domestic Violence
A Domestic Violence Injunction hearing is like a mini trial. There are witnesses, established procedures, and there is always a court reporter. Constitutional rights are at stake in very injunction hearing. Because important rights are at stake courts tend to be sticklers on rules and procedure. Although the vast majority of domestic violence hearings do not involve attorneys, having one can be a great advantage. Many people have several things going on at once: a divorce and a domestic violence case. The outcome of a domestic violence hearing can greatly affect a custody decision in a divorce. The custody statutes specifically call for the judge to consider any evidence of domestic violence. That is why it is critical to pay as much attention to your domestic violence case as with any other type of case.
