What Steps Can A Family Law Attorney Take to Resolve My Issues?
Regardless of what family law matter you need help with, our lawyers will work to come up with the most effective way to resolve your issues. In many cases, in a divorce, when determining paternity, or when trying to come up with a modification agreement, disputes may arise when couples and parents do not see eye-to-eye. Under these circumstances, a family law attorney can help you mediate your issues to come together on a resolution rather than taking matters to litigation. Although we do what we can to avoid litigation, sometimes a dispute is so contentious and problematic that litigation is the only way to proceed. We will represent you and do everything in our power to provide you with the results you need. An attorney can give you the legal advice you need to make informed decisions about your case and give you the best opportunity to move forward.
What Are the Financial Effects of Divorce?
Although many people are familiar with child support as a financial obligation that may be required in a divorce involving children, alimony is a type of financial support determined by how dependent one spouse may be on the other for financial support. In many cases, spouses involved in a divorce that are dependent on their spouse for financial support are left without many options to support their way of life. At Yaffa Family Law Group, we are here to pursue your best interests through alimony and divorce litigation in Boca Raton. By working with a family attorney from our law office you will be putting yourself in a great position to get the results you need. We will keep you informed throughout your process by giving you the advice and important information you need to make sound decisions throughout your divorce process. An attorney from our team will fight aggressively to make sure you get the payments you deserve. With the assistance of our law office, you can continue to live in the manner you’ve grown accustomed to.
Even though some states have laws requiring a 50/50 split of assets during a divorce, Florida takes a more balanced and equitable approach to the matter. By law, Florida is an “equitable distribution” state, as opposed to a “community property” state. Generally, this means that during divorce, your assets, property, and liabilities may be equally distributed in a divorce settlement by the courts. It is important to note that property also means debt. The equal distribution of property during a divorce allows fair debt distribution so no one is given an extreme disadvantage. It is possible that some factors may affect this process so it is important to seek the proper help to get your property sorted effectively. There are times when the courts take these factors into consideration and shift the final divorce decree one way or another. An experienced and knowledgeable equitable distribution attorney in Boca Raton can fight for your case so you can get what you rightfully deserve. Our attorneys fight to make sure our clients get the best results possible at the end of the day.
Hiding or concealing assets happens more often than you would think in a marriage. If one spouse doesn’t know of the other spouse’s hidden assets, it can make it extremely difficult for the court to properly divide those assets during a divorce. Either spouse can hide bank statements, cash, jewelry, and many other types of valuable assets that can never see the light of day in court. These hidden assets can have an adverse effect on the distribution of property, leaving you with much less than you deserve. Protect yourself from hidden assets and fight for what is rightfully yours by contacting our law office today.
If one spouse tries to hide funds and conceal assets, the other spouse has a huge challenge. The spouse that faces that major disadvantage is often referred to as the “out spouse”. Because many marriages have a de-facto manager of finances, meaning usually one spouse or the other handles paying bills and managing the finances of the household, they have the ability to hide assets and funds from the other spouse during a divorce. Our lawyers can take the appropriate steps to ensure equity when it comes time to distribute property. We can work to make sure you are treated fairly throughout your entire divorce.
