Divorce Lawyer in Miami

Filing for divorce, or, the dissolution of marriage is never easy nor is facing any Family Law related matter. These Family Court matters can affect almost every part of your life including your family, your property, your children, and even your pets! The process for a Divorce as well as other Family Law matters in Florida involving Child Custody, Child Support, or Paternity can be quite complicated, and the motivating factors behind a divorce serve as a foundation for many aspects of your case initially, and will come into play throughout the proceeding as well.

Couple arguing because of divorce


A divorce is the fastest, easiest form of divorce possible in Florida, but the process involves certain requirements. Generally, a divorce must not involve any of the following:

  • Children
  • Disagreements Surrounding Assets or Property
  • Unresolved Financial Issues
  • Include Two Parties Who Are Not Citizens of The State
  • Involve an Unfinished Marital Settlement Agreement

If all these requirements are met, you may be able to end your marriage without delay. However, if there are any extenuating circumstances the process will require court involvement and further legal action. A divorce, although easy, may not always turn out as such in the end.

There are couples that will try to resolve their divorce matter alone without the help of an experienced Divorce Lawyer with the legal know-how to help make sure their rights and interests are carefully protected. There is nothing worse than walking away from a divorce case with strings still attached. That’s why our dedicated Divorce Attorneys have the experience you need on your side to make sure nothing is overlooked in your Divorce proceeding.

Contested Divorce

Divorce court can be an infamously heated space that leaves both sides of a case strained and their goals fiercely contested. Generally, the assets and property acquired during a marriage must be divided equally. Property acquired before the marriage is unaffected by a divorce depending on certain circumstances that only an experienced Divorce Lawyer will truly understand. In a Contested Divorce where the parties are unable to agree on some if not all of the terms of their separation, the court will make adjustments to property division when complete asset and property division is not possible or when applicable, a complete determination concerning the marital assets, combined debts, entitlement to alimony, and child custody along with the applicable child support. With the help of an experienced lawyer at Marrero, Chamizo, Marcer Law, you can better ensure that the court adjustments or any determinations made are fair and equitable on your side of the case.

Alimony and Spousal Support

During the divorce proceedings in court, the issue of alimony or spousal support may arise. Alimony means that following divorce, one party is mandated to financially support the other. The monetary payments may be delivered in a single sum or consist of monthly payments until a specified time.

Spousal support is discussed if one party is unemployed or earns significantly less income than the other spouse. The support takes into account various factors, such as the different incomes and resources available to both parties, the length of the marriage, and whether any legal written agreements exist. Temporary support is generally set to end after a determined amount of time or when the receiving party can provide for themselves. In most cases where spousal support may apply, it is important to have legal representation in order to attain a fair agreement for the monetary payments.

Child Custody and Support

Child support can be among the most difficult aspects of any divorce case. In the State of Florida the laws on Child support are clear in determining the amount. However, the topic also involves determining where the children will live and what kind of support the hosting parent will receive. Before making a decision, the court will consider what is best for the child, which is determined by family history and resources.

You may file for joint-custody, but it will only pass if both parties agree. Child support depends on the child’s needs, age, and the hosting parent’s income. In cases involving child custody and Child Support the decisions are naturally never easy to make since it primarily predetermines the future of the child(ren).
