Helping Clients Find Effective and Positive Resolutions in Divorce
Every marriage is different, so the end of each marriage will also be a unique process. Spouses have a variety of issues that may or may not arise in a divorce, depending on their specific circumstances. Also contributing to the nature of a divorce is the emotional state of the relationship.
Some people divorce relatively quickly and affordably, while others face a long, drawn-out, stressful, and costly process. At the Law Office of Luz D. Nieto, our goal is to identify the best possible method to reach a resolution in a divorce case and to obtain a final judgment as efficiently and effectively as possible. The following are only some types of divorce cases I regularly handle - contact me directly to discuss options for your case.
Each divorce case will require spouses to resolve all relevant legal issues before a judge will dissolve the marriage. Some of these issues include:
Equitable division of property, assets, and debts
Child time-sharing and parental responsibilities
The goal of many divorcing spouses is to agree to the terms of the divorce judgment out of court, on their own terms. If spouses cannot agree, the court will need to hear the arguments of both sides at trial and make the necessary determinations. This litigation is often thought of as “traditional divorce,” and it can be costly, time-consuming, and emotionally daunting for both parties.
Also called informal or simplified divorce, an uncontested divorce is a faster, less expensive way to obtain a dissolution of marriage in Florida. This is a simpler process you can pursue if the following are true:
You have no minor children together, and the wife is not currently pregnant
If there are children, both parties truly believe that have agreed to everything involved and do not want to fight about any issues
One or both spouses have lived in Florida for six months
Both spouses agree they want a simplified divorce due to the breakdown of the marriage
Neither spouse seeks alimony support and/or there is a total agreement as to alimony
You still want to seek help from a Palm Beach County divorce attorney for a simplified divorce, however, as complications can arise.
If you are your spouse cannot agree on certain issues but want to avoid traditional litigation, mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method that can help. Mediation sessions allow spouses to discuss their views and how they want issues resolved and, with the help of a neutral third-party mediator, hopefully reach a mutual agreement regarding unresolved matters. This can help keep a case out of court and keep control in your own hands.
Collaborative divorce is a special process that spouses can agree to in order to avoid litigation. Florida passed the Collaborative Law Process Act (CLPA) that allows spouses to pursue this resolution method for their divorce cases, as well as other family law matters. The benefits of this process, includes but is not limited to:
Much faster than most traditional divorce cases
All information is confidential
Focused on the interests of the children
More cost-effective than litigation
Spouses largely control the outcome with the guidance of their attorneys
Access to financial and child experts to help reach favorable resolutions
Both spouses and their attorneys must agree to work together collaboratively, and agree not to bring the matter to court, in order to pursue this route for divorce.
