If you and your spouse agree on everything about your dissolution of marriage, then you can proceed with an uncontested divorce, which offers maximum flexibility and speed. An Orlando divorce attorney will draft up the necessary papers, including a marital settlement agreement that lays out the parties’ agreement in writing. The parties sign all the necessary papers, which are then filed with the court and a short final hearing is scheduled to have the final judgment of dissolution of marriage entered. We can anticipate possible future disagreements and settle them before the issues arise. Coming to a voluntary agreement between the parties can streamline the process and prevent the fighting and negativity that often occur in these situations.
When you and your spouse cannot agree to some or all of the terms of the divorce settlement, for example, you can’t agree on a proper timesharing plan or any disputes related to temporary or permanent child support or alimony, then your dissolution of marriage case is going to proceed as a contested divorce case. As Orlando divorce attorneys, we are experienced litigators and trial attorneys at The Spence Law Firm and know how to leverage the facts of your case to obtain the best results possible. Here are some of the major issues at stake in a contested divorce case:
Child Custody / Timesharing
Timesharing is one of the most important issues in any divorce case. Both parties are entitled to free and continuing contact with their children, although that is not an absolute rule. Sometimes facts are present that require alternate timesharing plans, including supervised timesharing. We will talk with you about the best timesharing plan for you and your children.
All minor children in the State of Florida are entitled to receive monetary support from their parents. Whether you need a child support order established, need to modify an existing order, or need to enforce an order that is not being followed, an Orlando divorce attorney at the Spence Law Firm we can help with your child support issues.
Spousal support or alimony is another important issue. In large part, alimony is used to monetize the contributions of the homemaker spouse during the marriage. Contributions within the home are no less valid under the law, and the homemaking spouse should not be punished for all the years of service they provided within the home, putting educational and professional goals on the back-burner. The spouse and, most importantly, the children, should be able to maintain the type of lifestyle they had before the divorce, while the other spouse should not be driven into the poor house to support an extravagant life style.
Distribution of Property
Distribution of property can be another hot-button divorce topic. You want an Orlando divorce attorney on your side who can make sure the odds are in your favor and ensure that you can keep the things that are most important to you and your family. At the Spence Law Firm, we help advise you on the best strategies to pursue regarding a favorable distribution of property.
