Representing Clients In Divorce And Related Cases

Divorce is the most high-profile category of family law. In Florida, the legal term for divorce is dissolution of marriage. Before your marriage can be dissolved, several key issues need to be resolved, the most important of which are the following.

  • Asset and debt allocation/alimony: Generally, assets and debts acquired during marriage are split roughly 50-50 when a divorce takes place. One spouse may also be granted temporary or permanent alimony.
  • Child custody and support: One of the most important goals of the family law system is to protect children's best interests by establishing parenting plans that meet their needs and providing them with financial support.

In addition to divorce, our family law practice also encompasses petitions for modification of child custody, child support and alimony judgments. If underlying circumstances have changed since your divorce, you may be entitled to a modification of one or more of these obligations.

Taking The Approach That Is Right For Your Case

The goal of the divorce process is to make it possible for you and your spouse to move on with your lives. Especially when children are involved, this goal is often best achieved through the negotiation of a settlement agreement that takes both parties' rights and interests into account.

However, in order to protect you or your children, it may be necessary to litigate your divorce case in court. Family law attorney Mark McMann is prepared to fight the good fight and will work hard to pursue the results you deserve.
