Divorce

Divorce is always painful,  but states like Florida which don’t force the parties to blame the other help ease that some.  When two parties seek a “dissolution of marriage” in Florida,  they don’t need to prove that one of them was at fault.  The Court can grant a divorce if the marriage is irretrievably broken, which is another way of saying that you don’t want to be married any longer.

There are many other issues a Court may need to resolve,  even if there are no children born into the marriage. Divorce Lawyer Timothy S. Keough can advise you of your rights on those issues, such as how your property, savings, retirement, and debts may be divided.  The State of Florida is also a state which may allow one party to receive alimony as well as contribution toward their attorney fees and costs.

Child Matters

All parents want what’s best for their children. However, there are often disagreements about what is best, and when parents separate, there are many issues to consider. There are no written guidelines for determining custody or timesharing. Absent a negotiated agreement, the Court will make this determination.

The standard for determining custody and/or timesharing is the best interest of the child.  The Court usually believes, unless there is a danger,  that children do better when both parents are involved. However, the extent of involvement can be increased or decreased based on various factors. Child support will be calculated after determining the incomes of the parties, health care insurance, and child care costs of the children as well as the timesharing in accordance with the State of Florida guidelines.

Family Law Attorney Timothy S. Keough can assist you with these issues,  helping you protect your rights taking care of your children. He can also assist with paternity and adoption issues.
