Getting a divorce is seldom easy. In addition to the various emotional issues that must be dealt with, the involved parties have to determine how they will divide the property they’ve accumulated as well as how any children of the marriage will be cared for. A contentious divorce in which there is hostility between spouses is even more difficult because often, neither spouse can see things clearly and cannot be objective about how to proceed. That’s why it is wise to learn about how a Florida divorce attorney can help you end things smoothly.
Possible Divorce Outcomes
Under Florida law, every divorce is unique. The outcome of a divorce will depend upon the unique circumstances of each individual marriage, including whether or not there are children, the type of employment of each spouse, the earning capacity and wealth of each spouse, the health of each spouse, and any special needs of the children of the marriage. The goal of a divorce court is to equitably distribute the financial resources of the involved parties and to provide for the best interests of the involved children. An experienced divorce attorney can ensure that this process takes place as efficiently as possible.
When a divorce is agreed upon by both spouses and there is little or no conflict involved in the decision, there is an alternative to a traditional divorce. A collaborative dissolution is the dissolution of a marriage in which the partners agree on a settlement that covers all issues of the marriage, from payment of debts to property division and child support. A family law or divorce attorney can help a divorcing couple initiate this process. This can make the whole process simpler and can save time and money.
