Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage
Divorce proceedings in Florida are either contested or uncontested. In a contested divorce, the Court may determine the following issues: Equitable Distribution, Alimony/Spousal Support, Child Support, Timesharing /Parenting Plans (formerly “custody” or “visitation”), Relocation, and every other issue affecting your family. In an uncontested divorce, through negotiation or mediation, the parties agree on the major issues respective to their divorce settlement. Even in an uncontested matter, it is wise to have attorney on your side to help you navigate the divorce process.
Alimony/Spousal Support Modification
Absent certain “non-modifiable” provisions in the parties’ settlement agreement or Court Order, Alimony/Spousal Support may be modifiable based on a substantial, material, and permanent change in circumstances from the most recent order establishing or modifying alimony. Whether you are paying or receiving spousal support, it is imperative that you immediately seek legal counsel, upon learning of a change in circumstances to ensure the appropriate amount of support.
