Contested & Un-Contested
Have you and your spouse grown apart, seeing things completely differently than when you first fell in love and decided to get married. Maybe you have just decided to call it quits after not being able to find common ground and continue the relationship without disagreement and strife. Many couples today face these and other related marital issues that don’t seem to get better with time. Relationships are tough to manage in today’s fast-paced world. Unfortunately, it’s very easy to get married in the State of Florida and just as easy to get divorced. Usually, all it takes is for one partner to declare there are irreconcilable differences in the marriage and the courts after certain processes are fulfilled grant divorces. It’s a shame that more conditions aren’t involved in getting married in the first place so that couples don’t take their marriage for granted. Maybe a more involved process for ending a marriage would give couples additional time and motivation in finding solutions to their apparent difficulties.
If you have reached a decision to end your marriage or are faced with a divorce action from your spouse, there are legal issues you should be aware that a competent family law attorney can answer. Considering divorce or the breakup of any marriage is one of the most difficult decisions you will face in your life. Compassion, understanding, legal support and counsel is what’s needed most during this frustrating and difficult time. Many family law attorneys in Jacksonville fl are sensitive to the issues one is confronted with. But choosing the right divorce and family law attorney can be a daunting task with so many practicing this field of law. Many divorce attorneys approach couples engaged in a divorce action, from an adversarial position, but managing the conflict within these types of disputes rather than creating it, is a more sophisticated legal approach especially if children are involved. Those affected by separation and/or divorce oftentimes feel things are completely out of control, but having the support of an attorney committed to solving the problems divorce creates allows families to build a durable process for a secured future.
