Divorce

Florida is a “no fault” divorce state. A no fault divorce means that neither party is considered directly responsible for ending of the marriage. If one spouse is considered at fault for ending the marriage, because of situations such as domestic abuse, an extramarital affair, or other actions that may have created an unhealthy relationship between the couple, the assignment of fault, although not legal in nature, can affect the outcome of child custody (time-sharing), alimony and property division decisions.

There is no legal separation in the state of Florida. If a married couple chooses to live separately but does not go through the legal divorce process, one spouse can petition the court for child support during the time that the spouses are separated, but cannot usually get any type of spousal support through the legal system. Since there is no official legal separation statute, if couples choose to separate and cannot amicably agree on spousal support or division of assets and liabilities, it may be best to pursue divorce.

When a couple splits up, many decisions need to be made related to the distribution of assets, liabilities and property. Spousal support, or alimony, is another aspect of the process that needs to be agreed upon. If children are involved, the situation becomes more complicated, since issues such as time-sharing (child custody and visitation) and child support must be considered. Aside from day to day finances for dependent children, considerations related to health insurance, life insurance, college education funding and other financial matters must be agreed upon. Every divorce case is unique and the types of considerations that need to be made in each case will differ depending on circumstances.

The results of a divorce can have long-lasting ramifications for you and your family for years to come. At Grazi & Gianino, we provide compassionate guidance and are responsive to your concerns, while also aggressively protecting your rights and your best interests in the pursuit of a positive resolution. With years of experience handling divorce cases, our divorce lawyer can provide you with the legal guidance you need to make informed decisions and the legal representation necessary to ensure that your interests are properly protected. Our comprehensive divorce representation also extends to matters related to child custody and time-sharing, child support, spousal support (alimony), and property/assets/liabilities division.
