Helping You Understand the Divorce Process

In Florida, before any steps can be finalized, divorce begins with one of the parties taking action in the filing of a petition for marital dissolution. There are a few different reasons for marriage dissolution. The first category is the most common, though it also bears certain aspects of subjective interpretation (since deciding when a marriage is broken beyond repair is difficult).

The two primary causes for a petition for dissolution include:

  • An irretrievable breakdown of the marriage
  • Mental incapacity of one party for at least three years prior to filing the petition for dissolution

Skilled Legal Representation During the Division of Marital Assets

Marital assets are divided equitably between spouses during divorce proceedings. Some assets, such as the money in a joint checking account, can be relatively easy to divide. Other assets, including real estate and business interests, can complicate the property division process.

I have skillfully helped clients throughout central Florida for over 25 years. I have secured fair legal settlements for my clients, no matter how complex their financial situations may be. I can ensure you are fairly represented, and I am committed to working to protect your interests every step of the way.

Mediation for Asset Division

An important, if somewhat unpleasant, task that must be completed is the division of property, assets, and debts. Unfortunately, conflicts can often arise as the two parties each believe the other person was the one who incurred debts or merited a smaller proportion of the assets. In order to settle these additional problems, it can be extremely effective to have a divorce lawyer serving Lake County support you throughout mediation. When disputes arise during the asset division process, I am a skilled mediator and will work to find solutions that can quickly resolve the conflict and allow both parties to hopefully move forward from a divorce.

If the parties actually can agree on issues such as property division, child support, alimony, and child custody arrangements, they can enter into a written agreement that the court must accept. These uncontested divorces may become final in a matter of weeks. Contested divorces, however, can take several months to resolve. In the event that the parties cannot agree on the terms of a divorce, the court will make the final judgment. This is why mediation can be a much faster process in comparison to traditional court processes.
