There are two grounds in Florida for obtaining a dissolution of marriage:
1. That the marriage is irretrievably broken
2. One of the parties has been adjudged mentally incapacitated under Florida Statutes 744.331 for at least 3 years preceding the filing of the petition
When obtaining a divorce, you may be entitled to alimony. There are several different types of alimony; permanent periodic alimony, durational alimony, bridge-the-gap alimony, rehabilitative alimony, and lump sum alimony. Roegiers Law can go over your options for alimony by your unique situation.
Equitable distribution is what Florida characterizes as the division of marital property. These assets can include the marital home, real property, businesses, retirement benefits, judgments and awards, patents, future earning capacity, licenses, and degrees, frequent flier miles, attorney’s fees, promissory notes, life insurance, bonuses and accumulated leave time, pets, social security benefits, stock options, trust funds, tax payments and refunds, and many other assets. Most divorces have property that is involved in equitable distribution and Roegiers Law can help you through this difficult process.
Any time a divorce has minor children to that marriage there are additional legal issues that must be resolved. Those issues include parenting plans, parental responsibility, time-sharing, and child support. Roegiers Law can help you navigate these issues while being compassionate to the sensitive nature of these issues for both you and your children.
