Our team can assist with a variety of aspects of divorce, including:

We take particular pride in handling high-asset, substantial income cases in which alimony and equitable distribution are complex. These cases often involve issues of commingled nonmarital property or disproportionate distribution where 50/50 is simply not fair.
Our divorce attorneys associate with highly reputable financial experts to value closely held companies, determine tax issues, or assist with structured settlements. At times, we will even contact forensic experts to locate assets or income sources, if necessary.

How Do I File for Divorce in Tampa?
Florida is a no-fault divorce state, so the only reason you need to provide is that your marriage is irretrievably broken. Another circumstance that qualifies you for divorce is if one of the parties has been deemed mentally incapacitated for at least three years. You will also need to prove that you and your partner are Florida residents. Once that is established, you are eligible to file the Petition for the Dissolution of Marriage. Whether you are serving divorce papers or the respondent, our attorneys and staff will be on your side every step of the way.
Is Florida a 50-50 Divorce State?
Florida is an equitable distribution divorce state. According to Florida laws, marital property is divided fairly, although not necessarily equal, in a divorce. Other states that divide everything equally and straight down the middle are known as community property states, and Florida is not one of them.
