At the Law Office of Jordan Gerber, we realize that the stakes are high. Due the intensity of the emotions involved, many clients are unaware of the complexity of the issues surrounding this sensitive topic. We not only advocate for our clients, but also embrace the role of counselor to ensure that clients understand their options while simultaneously appreciating that the emotional toll that divorce can take on all parties involved.
Although Florida is a self-proclaimed “equitable distribution” state, this does not necessarily mean that everything between parties facing divorce is split down the middle. In fact, there are numerous complex issues involved in determining if an asset is marital or separate and property division can end up being one of the most contentious aspects of divorce. Unequal distribution can also be effectuated to provide equity between the parties. In this case, certain aspects need to be highlighted such as the contribution of each party to the marriage and each party’s role in the acquisition of assets and liabilities.
Long gone are the archaic notions of child custody and the designation of primary residential parent. Now, more than ever, the court will look to the best interests of the child in determining a proper timesharing schedule.
Spousal support, or alimony, is one of the most bitterly debated aspects of many divorces. This is due to the fact that often, neither spouse feels the support award is fair. At The Law Office of Jordan Gerber, we understand both sides of the alimony issue and work diligently to achieve both obtaining the desired award and defending such award depending on the Client.
When your family structure is changing, it is imperative to make provisions for the financial support of your children. Child support is calculated by state enacted guidelines, but a skilled attorney well versed in family law can ensure that the correct information is entered into the formula which will determine the share of financial responsibility each parent will have.
No one can predict the future. After entering into a Final Judgment or Agreement, there remains the possibility that you will need effective legal representation to deal with subsequent changes in circumstances. When such changes, such as job loss, injury, promotion, and increase in quality or availability of educational opportunities for your children occur; this affects the applicability of prior court orders relating to child support, timesharing, and spousal support.
“Better safe than sorry” is a classic adage for a reason. Unfortunately, for many, it is often learned after failing to prepare for an unforeseen life changing event. People rarely enter into marriage planning for divorce, although statistics would assume otherwise. At The Law Office of Jordan Gerber, we understand how helpful a tool a Pre or Post-Nuptial Agreement can be in protecting parties’ separate interests while simultaneously circumventing the need for future litigation and unnecessary stress.
