The Support You Need To Get Through Your Divorce

If you’re going through a divorce, attorney House can help you understand how Florida’s divorce process impacts your life. When necessary, he will fight for your rights in the courtroom.

He offers experienced representation for the following kinds of divorce:

  • Contested divorce. If you and your spouse disagree on how to dissolve your marriage or have differing opinions on matters such as child custody, alimony or property division, you have a contested divorce on your hands. He’ll work with you to try and negotiate with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse to reach a mutually beneficial arrangement for both parties. If that isn’t possible, he’ll advocate for your best interests in the courtroom.
  • Uncontested divorce. If you and your spouse agree on how to dissolve your marriage, you can file for an uncontested divorce. Attorney House can help you finalize the process and ensure that your legal needs and concerns are met.
  • High asset divorce. If you or your partner own valuable assets, divorce becomes more complicated. Courts strive to equitably divide assets between partners at the end of a marriage. Typically, individuals with high and valuable assets want to safeguard assets that they have a personal attachment to. Attorney House will help you understand the asset division process and protect your assets during your divorce.

No matter the circumstances of a divorce, the dissolution of a marriage is often a stressful, painful process for both parties. Attorney House will always approach your case with care and compassion so you can get the fresh start you deserve.

He can also assist clients in cases involving domestic partnerships or unmarried couples. Parties who are unmarried or engaged in a domestic partnership have different rights than a legally married couple. If you cohabitate with a partner and are unsure of how certain laws may affect you, attorney House can help you understand how to proceed with your case.

Child Custody And Support

For any parent, the most difficult part of a divorce is often the child custody and support processes. You want the best for your child and trying to secure a custody and support arrangement that’s fair and equitable for both parties can be challenging.

Attorney House has the tools to help you navigate your child custody and support case. If possible, he’ll work on your behalf to help you and your ex develop a parenting plan that serves the best interests of your children. He’ll fight for your parental rights in the courtroom if an arrangement can’t be reached. All child custody concerns are important and need to be resolved correctly. His mission is simple when he handles high-conflict child custody and support cases. He takes the burden of these legal matters off your shoulders so you can focus on what’s important: taking care of your children.

Establishing paternity is essential for a variety of reasons. For example, in Florida, fathers are responsible for contributing to their children’s care. Establishing paternity can allow a single mother to obtain child support from the child’s paternal father.

Additionally, knowing the status of the child’s paternal father could provide valuable information for the child, such as medical records indicating possible future medical complications. Attorney House will work with you to establish paternity for your child, so you can ensure the father plays an active role in their child’s life.

Alimony And Spousal Support

Depending on the circumstances of your marriage, you may want to request alimony from your spouse; alternatively, your spouse may ask you to pay spousal support on their behalf.

The outcome of your alimony arrangement could impact your financial stability. Courts consider several factors when determining alimony, including each spouse’s income, contributions to the marriage, and how employable each part is post-marriage. Attorney House can help you understand how an alimony arrangement could affect you and help you seek a fair alimony arrangement given your circumstances.

Property Division In Florida

Property division is often the most financially impactful process that occurs during a divorce. The outcome of your property division case could make your future more economically stable, or lead to financial instability for years to come.

During the property division process, the court attempts to divide property between both parties equitably— but that doesn’t always mean assets and liabilities get split 50/50. For example, if one party obtains sole custody of any children involved in the divorce, the court may award that party the entirety of the marital home to help them care for the children.

The property division process is complicated. Attorney House will help you understand how to value your assets and liabilities and will help you pursue the best interests in your property division case.

Domestic Violence

Suffering from domestic violence can be a traumatic experience. If you are abused or threatened, you need protection. However, many victims find the process of pursuing a restraining order and tackling a domestic violence case in court stressful when combined with the trauma of abuse.

Attorney House has over two decades of experience helping individuals obtain protective orders for domestic violence cases. He’ll handle your case with empathy and compassion and fight zealously for your rights in the courtroom.
