Going through a divorce is considered by psychiatrists as the second most stressful life event anyone will experience. This is true even in an uncontested divorce and when the divorce is amicable, meaning both parties agree they should split up. Florida family law courts encourage divorcing couples to come to their own agreements regarding all issues and file a Marital Separation Agreement with the court, which then becomes a court order. Both parties must comply with its terms or face contempt charges.
Military divorces have rules that apply specifically to the military. The divorce lawyers at Ask2Amigo Law Firm use their knowledge and experience with divorces in general and military divorces specifically to settle the issues in your best interest with the least contention as possible.
Under Florida law, the principle of equitable distribution applies to the division of property that a married couple accumulated together during the course of their marriage. This really means the court divides property in a way that is fair. The couple is encouraged to agree on how assets should be distributed. If they cannot agree, the court will take evidence and decide on its own how the assets should be distributed. There are many factors the court considers when making its division. The attorneys at Ask2Amigo Law Firm will aggressively fight for you to obtain the most satisfactory distribution as possible in your divorce with property division.
Child Custody and Visitation
As in other areas of family law, the court encourages parents to put together their own parenting plan. The court must approve the plan. If the parents cannot agree, the court will take evidence from both sides in determining what is in the best interest of the children. We strongly suggest that you retain legal counsel from an attorney experienced with child custody cases.
There are guidelines the court follows depending on the income of both parents and needs of the children. There are circumstances under which the court can order support independent of the guidelines. A parent cannot withhold visitation from a parent just because that parent has not paid court-ordered child support. Call our office today to speak with an experienced child support attorney.
Foreign and Domestic Adoptions
There are many laws and regulations applicable to both foreign and domestic adoptions. Ask2Amigo Law Firm has a track record of success in helping parents adopt children. It is not always easy, but we join in the celebration when the process is complete.
