An Experienced Miami, FL Divorce Attorney Who Will Free You From the Fight

Ending a marriage is not exactly a desirable outcome, but in certain circumstances, it’s for the best. Has your marriage caused significant pain and burdened your mental, physical, and emotional well-being? It may be time to finally let go.

Divorce is already difficult for couples. However, when children are involved, it’s a much heavier process. With an experienced divorce attorney, you can ensure that you and your children’s rights are recognized and given full protection under the law.

Florida follows the no-fault divorce system. That means couples can decide to separate without having to prove any fault or mistakes made throughout the marriage.

However, the biggest challenge arises when your soon-to-be ex-spouse contests the divorce. But whether your divorce goes contested or uncontested, it’s in your best interest to hire a seasoned divorce lawyer who can help you not be married to the fight.

Settle Divorce Issues with Ease and Efficiency

Divorce has a far-reaching effect on you and your children’s lives. To ensure you can move forward without much difficulty, a divorce attorney can also help settle the following:

  • Child custody and support
  • Alimony
  • Division of properties

Protect your rights with an experienced Miami divorce attorney. Schedule a consultation with The Family Matters Law Firm today.

Helping You Find Peace Of Mind Through A Florida Divorce

After the honeymoon phase, you might slowly realize that you no longer recognize the person you married. You may not see eye-to-eye on essential matters such as finances, parenting, and career growth. Or you might be annoyed by their habits and negligence regarding chores and domestic duties. These may not seem like deal-breakers for some, but coping with these personality traits every day for years can wear you down.

Fortunately, Florida is a no-fault divorce state. Whenever you decide to end a marriage, you don’t have to prove any fault that led to this recourse. The process only requires one spouse to file the petition with the court.

An experienced divorce attorney can help ensure the proper process is followed. Schedule a consultation by contacting The Family Matters Law Firm today.

Resolve Disputes With Ease And Efficiency Through Mediation

In every divorce proceeding, a couple should settle numerous issues before finalizing the papers. Among other vital considerations, they must address the division of properties and assets and possibly spousal support (alimony). For couples with children, custody and child support are critical matters for discussion and agreement.

If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse cannot agree on these issues, the court would require you to go through mediation before resorting to a trial. During mediation, you and your partner will have the opportunity to air sides, and a mediator will act as the voice of reason to keep the discussion calm.

Your legal counsel will be present during the mediation to provide advice and protect your rights. Free yourself from the fight by consulting an experienced Miami divorce attorney.

Why Choose The Family Matters Law Firm ?

The Florida Bar Small Logo

Legal concerns with family can cause intense stress and have far-reaching effects. This can be especially true when children are involved. You also have a lot of financial interests in a family law case, so you must partner with the right attorney. The team at The Family Matters Law Firm is the right choice for these reasons:

  • We understand family. The Family Matters Law Firm offers our clients a family-friendly environment. We understand how delicate legal issues are with spouses, partners, and children.
  • We speak Spanish. Language barriers shouldn’t be a problem when you work with our firm. We speak Spanish and can understand your personal concerns.
  • We have the experience and skills. Family law is not something anyone should take lightly. Our attorneys have been practicing law for more than 20 years. We understand the critical aspects of family law and the essential steps with each case.

Responding to Divorce Papers Without Being Married to the Fight

Once you file a divorce petition and your soon-to-be ex-spouse receives a copy, he or she has 20 days to respond. If there are no disputes regarding property division, child custody, support, and related issues, or if you have already agreed upon these matters, a judge will sign an order to finalize the dissolution of your marriage.

However, if disputes arise or your spouse contests the divorce, you may be required to undergo the mediation process. The matter will go to trial if you and your spouse cannot reach a resolution during mediation. Are you concerned about your rights? An experienced divorce attorney will ensure they are protected and upheld.

 

How Long Will It Take to Get Divorced?

In Florida, several factors can affect the amount of time before a dissolution of marriage is finalized.

A lawyer can prepare the petition in approximately one month in an uncontested divorce. The court would take roughly three months to finalize the dissolution. That gives you about four months to get the divorce finalized.

For a contested divorce, however, you can look at three months to several years. It varies depending on how the mediation will go or if you need to go to trial.

Contact our firm to schedule a consultation with a competent Miami divorce attorney that helps unhappy families find peace of mind.

  • The most effective, intelligent and caring divorce lawyer in Miami.

    Emily Phillips successfully helped me to resolve a highly bitter divorce case with an excellent outcome! My ex was unreasonable and only out for blood and revenge. Her attorney only cared about taking my money and padding his pocket by filing lawsuit after lawsuit. He didn't care about the effect of litigation on my child. Emily put a stop to the shenanigans. She is a bright, intelligent, caring, reasonable, and most importantly, a very effective lawyer!
