Dealing with Divorce in Casselberry, Florida
Every divorce is unique, but each can be complicated in its own right. Before you file a divorce, it’s important to understand how it may be classified: contested or uncontested. In a contested divorce, the parties have been unable to reach an agreement regarding all of the issues in their divorce. A judge will hold a hearing and make determinations for the couple. In an uncontested divorce, the couple has agreed on how to split assets, pay and receive alimony and even decided on issues surrounding child custody. In most cases, an uncontested divorce is more cost effective.
The state of Florida is a no-fault divorce state. This means that, as in most other states, you do not have to provide evidence of a spouse’s wrongdoing in order to secure a legal separation or divorce. You only need to show that your marriage is “irretrievably broken.” If you do have evidence of wrongdoing such as abandonment or adultery, the judge in your case may use that evidence to make certain rulings in the divorce.
Even those going through a no-fault, uncontested divorce need experienced legal representation. It can be easy for a person to start giving into demands as a divorce wears on in the interest of “getting it over with.” When you have an experienced Casselberry divorce attorney on your side, you can rest assured that your divorce will be equitable.
