Dissolution of Marriage
When you are contemplating a divorce, known as dissolution of marriage in Florida, you need the advice of a dedicated family law attorney who has extensive experience in divorce and child support. Our lawyers are some of the best and brightest in the profession who are committed to serving their clients best interest under the law.
Since Florida is a no-fault state, you don’t need grounds to petition for a dissolution of marriage that is irretrievably broken. However, you should seek advice from a competent divorce lawyer, especially if you have marital assets and/or minor children. A family law lawyer not only protects your interest, but he or she can help you understand your rights and obligations throughout the process.
The State of Florida requires both parents to share equally in the financial obligations of raising their minor children until they are 18 years of age. Once the court orders child support payments, you are legally obligated to make the payments. Child support orders are enforced by the Florida Department of Revenue and failure to make payments can result in civil and criminal penalties. Whether you want to establish paternity to file for child support, modify an existing child support order or are not receiving child support payments, a lawyer with experience in family law and child support can provide the legal help you need.
