Divorce

Many people believe that divorces involve the separation of marriages between spouses. While this may be true, there are several other factors that must be considered during a divorce in Florida.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Divorces dissolve marriages, thereby legally separating a couple. This separation is not just literal and physical, but it applies to all aspects of the marriage. As each individual leaves the marriage, each individual becomes fully responsible for his/her own life.

Annulments

In the state of Florida, marriage is perceived as a sacred Union shared between two individuals who love and care for each other. It is the foundation of the family and often the means of societal population. As such, marriages are expected to be valid.

Arbitration

When people hear the word “divorce,” there is often a feeling of uneasiness associated with it because people are so familiar with the lengthy, complicated, even messy process that accompanies divorce proceedings. Fortunately, there are alternative ways for spouses to dissolve their divorce.

Prenuptial Agreements

What makes divorces so difficult for separating spouses is that they must abruptly decide on how the many years of the marriage will be dissolved and how the marital property accumulated will be distributed. There are many factors to consider during divorce.
