Navigating The Road To Divorce In Florida

Mandell, P.A. has helped clients in the Fort Lauderdale region and across Florida understand their options. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed and scared about the future. We listen to each client with compassion in order to understand your needs. We then can find the best solution for you and your situation.
What You Should Know About Property Division And Support
Florida is a no-fault state, which means you do not need to have a reason to file for divorce. As an equitable distribution state, the court will divide property fairly. It’s important to know that this does not mean it will be split 50/50 down the middle. As your representation, it is our job to fight for everything you believe you are entitled to. Some of the things that the court will use to determine how to divide the property include:
- The length of time of the marriage
- The contributions of each party to the marriage, such as giving up a career to stay home and raise the kids
- The ability of the spouses to earn a living after a divorce
We also help those looking to receive or avoid paying spousal support as a result of a divorce. The goal is for each party to maintain their current lifestyle. For couples with children, we can make sure that their best interests are represented in any child custody proceedings. Having an attorney who understands all areas of the law is crucial. While we aim to solve every dispute out of court, we will go in front of a judge when necessary. Our top priority is making sure we reach a reasonable solution for everyone involved.
