Dissolution Of Marriage Aggressive Representation. Compassionate Guidance.

Divorce Attorney in Stuart

Providing Effective & Compassionate Services

To get a divorce in Florida, you must first file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. In order to be eligible for a petition, either spouse needs to have lived in Florida for at least six months. The petition should be filed with the circuit court of the county where the individual filing the petition (the petitioner) resides. The other spouse (the respondent) needs to be formally notified of the filing. Should the respondent file a Counter Petition or Answer that denies or disagrees with anything in the petition, the petitioner can submit a Notice for Trial and proceed forward with a contested divorce.

At ADL Law, P.A. our family law attorney in Stuart has years of experience in this practice area and can provide effective representation at all stages of the legal process. Whether you are filing for divorce, contesting a petition, moving forward with a contested dissolution, or more, we can help you resolve your matter quickly and efficiently. Our attorney has a comprehensive understanding of this area of law and will work to handle all your legal obligations while you focus on other matters.

Divorce Laws in Florida

Our goal is to help you achieve all your divorce-related needs while fighting for your best interests and ensuring your rights are fully protected. We understand all aspects of divorce laws in Florida and will work to make your experience with us as efficient and pleasant as possible.

First, you should know that the only two grounds for divorce in this state are if one of the parties is mentally incapacitated or if the marriage is irreparably broken. Secondly, you should be well-prepared for a contested divorce if you are the petitioner, even if your spouse states otherwise. This is because they may want property, assets, custody, or other things that you believe are yours. Our lawyer will use his extensive experience and skill set to help you retain your belongings and your rights. Lastly, you should know that Florida is an equitable distribution state and will distribute your debts and assets in an equitable and fair manner.

When making decisions for property division, the court will take into account these factors, and more:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • Economic statuses of both parties
  • Contribution to the marriage made by both spouses
  • All other factors that may be necessary to do justice and equity between parties
