According to an often-quoted statistic published by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fifty percent of all marriages in the United Sates are likely to end in divorce. If you live in Florida, the odds are even a little bit higher.
Although terminating a broken marriage in Florida is legally less difficult that in the days before the state’s adoption of a so-called “no fault” divorce law, the emotional trauma – both that of the spouses and their children – that results from a divorce is considered by many mental health professionals to be on a par with the death of a close family member or a life-threatening illness.
Whether you are considering a divorce or have learned that your spouse intends to pursue one, the process can seem overwhelming. You need not go it alone, however. The advice and counsel of a knowledgeable and experienced South Florida lawyer can make the difference between merely surviving the divorce process and emerging from it with a solid financial future and a clear understanding of your rights and responsibilities, as well as those of your former spouse and your children.
The need for solid, aggressive legal representation is of course especially important if you and your spouse will be unable to agree on one or more fundamental issues such as child custody and “time sharing” (visitation), division of property, child support and alimony. However, the terms of your divorce will almost certainly have long-term implications for you, your children and even your extended family. For this reason, even if you are involved in a collaborative or an uncontested divorce, you need to know that you have an experienced professional on your side doing everything possible to protect your interests. That’s where we come in. When you retain one of the family law attorneys at Orner Law, LLC, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from a relationship with a caring, dedicated professional.
