Getting Guidance Through Your Divorce

Embarking on a divorce can be a complex and emotional journey. In Florida, the grounds for divorce are straightforward: A marriage can be dissolved if it is deemed “irretrievably broken” or if a spouse has been mentally incapacitated for at least three years. This no-fault stance ensures that the focus remains on resolution rather than blame.

At McCauley Law Offices, P.A., we understand the intricacies involved and are here to offer you the legal support you need. When you have reached the end of your marriage, you deserve to have someone by your side who can lead you through the divorce process and defend your best interests along the way. Whether you are trying to resolve your divorce through collaboration or otherwise, we are here to help.

The Difference Between Uncontested And Contested Divorces

Getting a divorce does not mean that you have to go to court to resolve things. Instead, you may be able to pursue an uncontested divorce instead of a contested one. An uncontested divorce is one where you and your spouse agree on all major aspects, such as property division, child support and custody arrangements. This path can be more amicable, cost-effective and quicker to resolve.

However, if there are disputes that you and your spouse cannot resolve, this leads to a contested divorce. Such cases often require a robust legal strategy and a skilled attorney to advocate for your best interests. No matter which path is right for you, we can guide you through the challenges along the way.

Temporary Relief And Orders

During the divorce proceedings, you may require temporary relief for various urgent matters. Florida courts can issue temporary orders to provide immediate support and stability. These may include temporary child support, alimony, child custody arrangements and exclusive use of the marital home. If you believe that you need temporary relief during your divorce process, we can help you pursue the support you are after.

Your Future Starts Here

Getting a divorce is an opportunity to open a new chapter in your life, and we can help you put your best foot forward into that new life. Having the right attorney by your side can be the difference you need in defending your needs through your divorce.
