Tampa/St. Petersburg Uncontested and Contested Divorce Attorney

Divorce, or dissolution of marriage, separates assets that are commingled or marital, and also prompts custody decisions regarding any children from the marriage. The most common divorce agreement and settlement questions with which people have concerns are:

  • Is there going to be alimony and how much will it be? This is a complicated question that depends upon the length of the marriage, the ability of each individual to earn an income, lifestyle during the marriage and many other factors. We can walk you through your options.
  • How is the property divided? Pre-marital or non-marital property is usually yours to keep, although not always if it has been commingled. Marital property is divided equitably, which is not the same as a 50-50 split. We help our clients work through the issues and decide what battles to fight. We help those with complex property division matters such as business valuations.
  • How much is child support? This question depends upon the child custody determinations and also on the income earning ability of each parent. In general there is a Florida state formula that is followed. We can help you understand your obligations and rights.
