Miami Divorce Attorney

Before filing for a divorce in Florida two requirements have to be met.

  1. Since Florida is a no-fault divorce state, the only ground needed to obtain a divorce is that the marriage is "irretrievably broken." It can't be fixed or put back together.
  2. Further, one of the parties to the marriage must have resided in the State of Florida for six months before filing the petition for dissolution of marriage.

The circumstances of every divorce are unique. It is always in your best interest to retain an experienced Miami Divorce Attorney like myself, who is sensitive to your situation and needs. After gaining an understanding of your objectives and performing a thorough investigation of the relevant facts I will be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your position. We will work together so you will be able to develop reasonable goals and a strategy calculated to succeed in obtaining the best possible resolution of your divorce or related matters.

I am focused on helping my clients resolve divorce disputes through mediation. The advantages of mediation include: it is voluntary and non-binding; the parties control the scheduling and can expedite resolutions, if desired; the process may be less stressful than a trial or other court hearing; and mediation is generally more cost-effective than contested litigation.

If matters cannot be resolved through mediation I have the knowledge and expertise and supporting staff to litigate all matters before the trial judge.

Simply stated, marital property includes:

  1. Assets that were acquired during the course of the marriage, individually by either spouse or jointly by them;
  2. The enhancement in value and appreciation of nonmarital assets resulting either from the efforts of either party during the marriage;
  3. Gifts that either party gave to the other during the course of the marriage; and
  4. All vested and non-vested benefits accrued during the marriage in programs of retirement, pension, profit sharing, etc.

Marital liabilities are those which were incurred by either party during the course of the marriage.

DIVISION OF MARITAL PROPERTY AND MARITAL DEBTS

Florida requires that marital assets and marital debts be equitably divided. Equitable distribution is the apportionment of the marital assets between the parties in a just and equitable manner regardless of who owns the property. Equitable distribution of marital debts is also required.

The starting point is to equally divide the value of those assets and liabilities that were accumulated during the marriage.

Some factors that determine equitable distribution include:

  1. The duration of the marriage;
  2. The economic circumstances of the parties;
  3. One party desiring to keep a particular asset; and
  4. And any other factors that do justice and equity between the parties.

I work closely with my clients to help them determine the value of the marital estate and how to equitably divide marital property. Often property division matters can be worked out through mediation, based on the needs of the parties. One party may want the house while the other may be concerned about protecting a business interest or retirement account.

Even in cases where property division matters can be worked out in mediation, it may be in my client's best interest to initiate a court proceeding to obtain restraining orders that prevent the sale or transfer of assets and to require full disclosure of assets.

I work with my clients to ensure that they are treated fairly whether property division matters are decided by the parties or by a judge. You can contact me for a confidential consultation at (305) 854-8689 or you may contact me via E-mail
