Lake Mary Divorce Attorney

Divorce is one of the biggest decisions you may ever have to make, and working with an experienced, compassionate attorney can help make this emotionally draining process run smoothly. Our attorneys can help guide you in the right direction, and avoid common divorce mistakes—errors made during the divorce process, such as failure to locate assets or secure your desired parenting plan, can have serious impacts later on in your life. Our Lake Mary divorce attorneys at Troum Law Firm, P.A. are here for you in this difficult time.

Major Aspects of Divorce

  • Division of Marital Assets—There are two types of property to consider in divorce: marital and non-marital. Marital property, which includes debt, is property accrued during the course of the marriage. This includes bank accounts, real property, retirement accounts, pensions, business assets, and more. Anything acquired before the marriage is not marital property, and is not subject to division under Florida’s equitable division doctrine, which states that all marital property must be divided equitably (fairly, not necessarily evenly).
  • Parenting Plan / Child Custody and Visitation—Custody is one of the main areas of disagreement in divorce, particularly if one parent wishes to get a fresh start and move out of the city. Under Florida statute 13001, custodial parents, who want to take their children with them, who move outside of a 50 mile radius must either have permission from the other parent or a court order. In all custodial and visitation disputes, the court sides with what it believes is in the child’s best interest.
  • Child Support—Finding the right balance between each parent’s financial abilities and the child’s needs can be difficult when it comes to child support. An attorney will help ensure that, either as the paying or receiving parent, any child support agreement or court-order makes sense for you and your child.
  • Alimony / Spousal Support— Spousal support is a financial tool that the lower earning spouse can use, regardless of their gender, to pay for living expenses during the divorce, to go back to school, or to live on for the remainder of their lives if they are elderly or the other spouse is very wealthy.

Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce

A contested divorce simply means that spouses disagree on one or more issues, and these issues must be decided during mediation, arbitration, or through the court system. Many divorces are uncontested, meaning that both spouses are able to come to an agreement on all issues from asset division to child support. Many spouses wonder if they need an attorney in an uncontested divorce, and the answer is typically yes. All matters of divorce must be addressed carefully, and this is not possible without an attorney. For example, your spouse may decide to split all marital assets evenly, and you may agree that this is fair, or even more than fair—you are getting the better deal. However, it is not uncommon for spouses to hide money from one another in separate bank accounts, offshore accounts, in safety deposit boxes, or even by deferring work bonuses or raises. In fact, 7.2 million American spouses are currently hiding assets from the other, with men almost twice as likely as women to be the culprits, according to CNBC.
