Experienced Divorce Attorneys in Tampa
At Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A., our skilled family law attorneys understand what is at stake during your divorce proceedings. We take the time to listen to our clients, assisting you through the entire process and customizing every strategy to determine the best divorce process for your case. Whether you are interested in exploring collaborative divorce, traditional litigation, or guidance with a high asset divorce, we are happy to assist. We service clients throughout Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Brandon, Sarasota, Fish Hawk, and beyond.
Our team can assist with a variety of aspects of divorce, including:
- Pre-Divorce Planning
- Property Division/Equitable Distribution
- Collaborative Divorce
- Domestic Violence Injunctions
- Child Custody
- Child Support
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 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.
Call us at (813) 223-5421 to arrange a consultation regarding your divorce.
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.
