Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage Archives


The divorce process can be a tumultuous roller coaster that will test every fabric of your emotional, mental and physical capacity. The physical impact of the divorce process is rooted in the emotional and mental stress that many people experience during a divorce. Some divorces are easily resolved, however, some can get downright ugly. With the significant emotions churning when dissolving a marriage many people lose sight of everyone around them, especially their children.

Relocation During Your Florida Divorce

If you have recently moved to Central Florida, the transient nature of its residents may surprise you. Neighbors come and go like seasonal fashion trends. People move here for many reasons.

This is because most of the time, they are too emotionally compromised to move forward toward a solution by themselves.

Your Florida Divorce: When You Need to Know the Law

Apparently, the forms available online at the Florida Courts website, coupled with the self-help center in Orange County, caused this person to question whether it was necessary to retain the services of a lawyer in her Florida divorce.

The Right Lawyer Can Make A Difference

What do you believe your divorce should look like? Do you believe it should be respectful or war-like? Litigious or peaceful? Of course, you may believe divorces are an ugly business, full of game-playing and legal maneuvering. You may be preparing for the emotional and financial fallout you think inevitably follows a divorce.
