Preparing for Divorce in St. Augustine
St. Augustine Divorce Attorney
In Florida, a "dissolution of marriage" is what most people call a "divorce." If you or your spouse are considering a divorce, it is essential to get professional help. Being proactive about protecting your rights and interests could make all of the difference in your divorce. Our firm has the insight and knowledge required to handle even the most complex kinds of divorce cases. Depending on the circumstances that led to your divorce, it may be contentious, especially if your spouse is unwilling to cooperate or is withholding information.
In most divorces, the court will decide the following:
- How to divide marital property (aka "equitable distribution");
- Who will be responsible for minor children;
- Where minor children will live;
- How much visitation the parents will enjoy;
- How much child support should be awarded; and
- Whether alimony is warranted.
Before the court decides these issues, both parties are required submit specific documentation and attend certain classes or courses. It may be possible to decide these issues with the cooperation of both parties via a settlement agreement.
We offer affordable consultations to all our potential clients.

Will I get alimony or child support?
Many of our clients are concerned about their financial situation after divorce, which is perfectly understandable. In terms of alimony, various factors will be taken into consideration to determine whether or not you will receive alimony. For the most part, the longer the duration of a marriage, the higher the chances that you will obtain alimony from your spouse.
If you have a child who is a minor, you may be able to petition for child support. When deciding on child support matters, a family law court judge will look at the income of both parents as well as the child's age and needs, among other factors. Our firm can assist you with alimony and child support matters and do everything possible to secure a positive outcome on your behalf.
