Dedicated Divorce Support

While all divorces will follow an established legal procedure, every proceeding will differ in duration and particular requirements depending on the couple involved. Others can easily fast-track their divorce by reaching an agreement before going to court, while some may go through a contentious process where sensitive issues might take longer to settle, affecting the couple and their families as well.

You don’t have to worry, however, because Trinity Family Law can always represent you regardless of the complexity of your situation. Our divorce lawyers can help you draft and finalize a divorce agreement during mediation if you and your ex-spouse are on good terms. We will strive to reach an agreement where the terms will best benefit your children if any.

If, however, you and your ex-spouse are going through a messy breakup and mediation couldn’t help, our divorce lawyers are always ready to make a compelling case in court as well. We’ll gather all the relevant paperwork and evaluate the information before determining how to best get you a fair share of assets and properties. We’ll also ensure that any alimony, child support, child custody, and debt division terms will be fair, reasonable, and best for your family.

The bottom line is that while we will do our best to resolve any issues during mediation, we’ll proactively advocate for your rights as a parent and over the assets in question before the court as well if needed.

Child Custody & Child Support

As long it’s best for the child’s development and safety, Florida family law will always favor the fair share of parenting time and parental responsibilities between mothers and fathers.

Alimony & Spousal Support

Whether you are the party asking for alimony or the one being required to pay it, our divorce lawyers can represent you and make sure that the final order will be just and feasible.

If you want a more detailed explanation of how alimony works in Florida, don’t hesitate to call Trinity Family Law for a free consultation. In the meantime, however, here’s a brief definition of the four types of alimony that can be awarded in Florida:

Bridge-the-gap alimony is temporary financial support that lasts for no more than two years. This is awarded to help the receiving spouse in meeting “legitimate and identifiable” basic living needs as they transition from being married to single. This is available for spouses who have the ability to become self-sufficient and will take steps to be financially independent.

Additionally, while the court doesn’t factor in the length of marriage when awarding bridge-the-gap alimony, this is mostly awarded in cases where the marriage only lasted for less than seven years. This is because, for longer marriages, other types of alimony are justifiable and better suitable.

Rehabilitative alimony is awarded to the receiving spouse if they need time and financial assistance to reestablish the skills, knowledge, and overall capacity to become self-supportive. The receiving spouse will have to provide evidence that the marriage hindered their earning capacity before this alimony will be awarded. This means that even if the duration of the marriage will still be considered, it is the impact of the marriage on the receiving spouse’s earning capacity that will determine whether the alimony will be awarded or not.

For example, if the receiving spouse stopped working to take care of the children or stayed home due to the other spouse’s demands, rehabilitative alimony can be awarded. Moreover, this alimony has a termination date and will require the receiving spouse to follow a rehabilitative plan, ensuring that both parties will continue to have the same standard of living during their marriage.

Durational alimony is financial assistance provided to the financially dependent spouse whose marriage was either short-term (7 years or less) or moderate-term (7-17 years). This will be awarded if permanent alimony is inappropriate and will have a predetermined duration of payment, which won’t exceed the length of the marriage.

The amount of durational alimony can be modified or terminated if a substantial change in circumstances warrants it. Even if the predetermined duration is not yet up, this alimony will be terminated when the paying spouse dies, or the receiving spouse remarries.

Permanent alimony will be awarded if one spouse lacks the ability to become self-sufficient again following the dissolution of a long-term marriage, helping them in meeting their needs as established by their standard of living when the marriage was still alive. This is typically only awarded to spouses whose marriage lasted for 17 years or more and will only be terminated upon either spouse’s death or the receiving spouse’s remarriage.

Should you decide to work with Trinity Family Law, our Cedar Key, FL divorce lawyer will carefully assess your specific situation and determine the most appropriate type of alimony to request. We’ll make a compelling case for establishing your need for financial support and provide evidence of the duration that you need it paid.

On the other hand, if you’re the one being requested to pay the alimony, rest assured that our divorce lawyers will fight for a fair alimony agreement. We’ll ensure that you’ll pay no more or longer than the actual amount and duration necessary.

Asset & Property Division

Many issues and possibly heated arguments can arise when it comes to dividing the assets and properties between divorcing couples. This is even more magnified if there’s a substantial amount of assets in question. Fortunately, at Trinity Family Law, our divorce lawyers are well-versed in handling asset and property division negotiations, even in the most tricky cases.

We will gather your financial records and other relevant documents to evaluate and determine the share that each spouse deserves. We can help locate, value, and divide all kinds of assets, including complex ones like the following:

  • Real estate assets
  • Professional practices
  • Financial accounts
  • Insurance policies
  • Privately held businesses
  • Publicly held companies
  • Foreign assets

Long-term assets like stock options, employee benefits, and pension plans can also be characterized, valued, and divided by our lawyers. So if you want to get a clear idea of what kind of share to expect after the divorce, contact Trinity Family Law today for a free initial consultation.

Business Owner, High-Value, or High-Profile Divorce

While all divorce cases can become somehow difficult at some point, the level of conflict can easily rise for high-profile or high-value couples. Disputes over money and other assets are too common and tend to be more complicated and messy than those with normal couples.
