Our Tampa divorce attorneys have handled enough cases to understand the most important thing of all – each case is unique. There are advantages and disadvantages to every situation that need to be skillfully considered.

From the minute details of your case to the broader legal approach it requires, a focused team effort will ensure that all angles are thoroughly covered in your representation.
THE FACTS: Are You Facing a Contested or an Uncontested Divorce?
Ideally, both spouses will be in agreement on all aspects of their divorce. There are no issues in dispute, and it’s known as a simple dissolution of marriage or uncontested divorce. These are the most simple cases and generally can be finalized very quickly.
In an uncontested divorce proceeding, the parties simply execute a Marital Settlement Agreement outlining all the terms of their agreed upon divorce, including child support, custody or timesharing, visitation, division of property and debts, and alimony, as applicable. They also execute a Parenting Plan if they have at least one minor child.
Entering into a marital settlement agreement replaces the necessity of having a judge decide issues and often leaves the parties more satisfied, since it allows both spouses more control over their future.
We are aware that not all marriages end so amicably. In cases where spouses are not in agreement, the dissolution of marriage is known as a contested divorce.
In this type of divorce, the parties may enter into other types of agreements such as a temporary agreement or partial agreement.
Often, there are disagreements over division of assets and liabilities, and spouses have difficulty coming to terms on what is considered ‘equitable distribution.’ In some cases, high-value assets may be at stake and family businesses become coveted possessions that only qualified legal intervention can protect. Many times there’s a risk of hidden assets that only professional scrutiny can bring to light.
With everything personal and financial that’s at stake, it’s understandable when some divorces end up in court. Going to trial is not the most common scenario, but sometimes litigation becomes necessary to achieve your desired outcome.
It’s usually when emotions run high that alimony and child custody issues turn into battles only to be fought and won in a court of law. When your divorce takes this turn, our team will aggressively represent your best interests and those of your child.
