The family law attorneys at Fenstersheib Law Group provide their clients with the expertise and compassion they need while navigating the complex, often overwhelming process of dealing with a family law matter in Florida.
A looming divorce or custody issue can derail a person’s life, throw their future into question, and cause tremendous emotional turmoil. This can make an already difficult situation feel impossible. Therefore, it is paramount to have trusted attorneys to turn to with questions, concerns, and guidance during these times.
At Fenstersheib Law Group, the attorneys focus on providing the most relevant information to their clients in a concise, easy-to-understand manner, which equips them with the ability to make well-informed decisions about their family law case.
Florida is a no-fault divorce state, meaning either party to a marriage can file for divorce without citing specific reasons or justification; they must state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” In addition, before filing for divorce, it is required that at least one party to the marriage has lived in Florida for a minimum of six months.
A divorce in Florida may be contested or uncontested. If it is contested, one or both parties disagree with one or more terms of the divorce and cannot come to a resolution without mediation or family court involvement.
In these cases, the Florida courts will determine the matters, including how the assets and debts will be divided and whether alimony will be awarded. If children are involved, then the court will also make rulings concerning child support orders, parental rights and responsibilities, and the timesharing of the children.
Contested divorces require more time, money, and energy than uncontested divorces, where the parties agree on all divorce terms. For this reason, resolution through mediation is preferred – usually by all parties involved, no matter how at odds they seem to be.
A high-net-worth divorce means even higher stakes than a typical divorce and as a result, can create a particularly stressful environment for both parties. No one wants to lose more of their hard-earned money and assets than they need to, and no one wants to walk away from a marriage feeling as though they got the raw end of the deal.
However, navigating a high-net-worth or otherwise complex divorce involving many moving parts is no easy task. It requires a higher level of legal expertise and sophistication than many family law attorneys can offer. The attorneys at Fenstersheib Law Group have what it takes – the knowledge, expertise, and negotiation skills – to handle complex divorces so that their high-net-worth clients are never taken advantage of but receive a fair divorce settlement.
Except under limited circumstances, all parties must attend mediation before a final divorce hearing. Mediation is a valuable and effective tool designed to assist the parties in working towards a solution that they can accept. Issues such as child support, alimony, parenting time, and equitable distribution of assets are common disputes mediators help the parties resolve. Each side will consult with their lawyer before agreeing to anything.
When facing an impending divorce or contested family law matter in Florida family court, it is advisable to work with a Florida divorce lawyer to ensure that everyone’s rights are protected and that the process moves as smoothly as possible.
