Divorce can have a profound effect on your future, even after it has been settled. It can involve your children; your property, assets, debt, and monthly finances; your retirement; and even your extended family. It is important to make sure that your future and your rights are protected under Florida family law.
As a family man and a Florida Bar board-certified specialist in marital and family law, I understand the far-reaching effects of divorce very well. I can help you protect your rights so that you can get a fair and equitable result, and explain the legal options that fit your particular circumstances.
In some cases, Florida family law can make the painful process of divorce easier. If you and your spouse are able to negotiate an uncontested divorce, you can save money and avoid a trial. Florida law has also done away with contentious custody battles, relying instead on time sharing and parenting plans that help divorcing couples resolve disputes about their children.
However, I also know that some divorces can be bitter. While peaceful agreements are certainly desirable, your spouse may be uncooperative. As a former prosecutor, I can offer strong legal representation to help you protect your rights and your relationships with your children. I will work exhaustively and offer all the personal attention necessary to help you get a fair and equitable divorce settlement.

Protect Your Family Relationships with the Help of a Former Prosecutor
Whether your divorce will be easy or difficult, it is important to have an artful negotiator working for you. Many issues need to be decided with your best interests in mind. For example:
- When children are involved, child support and time sharing plans are one of your top priorities. Get help resolving disputes about your children with the help of an experienced attorney. In some cases, paternity may be contested. The rights of extended family members, such as grandparents, may also be compromised.
- The financial effects of divorce can be far-reaching. Your income is at stake, and there can be important legal issues that involve property and debt division, alimony and spousal support, and retirement.
- In high-asset divorces, financial issues can be complicated even further. The worth of a business may need to be assessed and asset division may need to be negotiated to fulfill the requirements of Florida law.
- In military divorces, the need to travel frequently or live far away from your children makes parental relocation very important. Additionally, your military retired pay may be at stake.
- Changes in life circumstances may require a modification to a previous divorce agreement. Additionally, one party may need to sue another for enforcement of court orders if child support is not being paid or visitation rights are not being respected.
