We Understand The Challenges Men Specifically Face In A Divorce
In Florida, a divorce is called a dissolution of marriage, and it begins with a petition from one of the spouses. You can file for a simplified dissolution of marriage or a regular dissolution of marriage, depending on your situation and what best suits your needs.
A simplified dissolution of marriage is filed when there are no shared children involved, all property is divided or decided upon, and both spouses waive their right to a hearing. If the spouses do not meet these criteria, a regular dissolution of marriage must be filed.
A regular dissolution of a marriage often involves a hearing or negotiations. More paperwork, including a time-sharing schedule, is submitted to the court when children are involved.
Who Pays For Attorneys’ Fees?
The answer largely depends on your financial situation and if any assets in the divorce are contested.
Generally, attorney fees come from a marital pot unless one party makes more income to pay for the ongoing expenses. You will pay the same attorney fees if your income is the same. The answer becomes more complicated if there is a fight about property or assets.
If you are considering filing for divorce, we can help you determine your best option. If your spouse has already filed, we can help you with the next steps.
