In Florida, divorce is called a “dissolution of marriage.” A dissolution of marriage proceeding can be contested, uncontested, or a combination thereof.

A paternity case may be necessary to establish a child’s parentage depending on the marital statuses of the child’s mother and alleged father at the time of the child’s birth.
A premarital agreement (also known as prenuptial or antenuptial agreement) is made between prospective spouses in contemplation of marriage to be effective upon marriage.
Post-judgment issues are events that occur or circumstances that arise after a final judgment resolving the initial case has been entered such as enforcement, contempt, or modification.
Although the attorneys at the firm continue to practice and are experienced in the traditional litigation based dissolution of marriage, they recognize the benefits, both financial and emotional, of not going to court. They use mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution whenever possible. Additionally they are trained in handling matters by the Collaborative Divorce Process. Collaborative Divorce is a way of reaching resolution with the parties by the attorneys for both parties using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques and court proceedings.
