As an experienced Aventura Divorce Attorney, We understand that the decision to divorce can be a tough one, no matter who makes it. Depending on the length of the marriage, whether there are children involved, and other circumstances, the fallout from divorce can be devastating. It’s important to know your rights and where you stand with the laws of the State of Florida.
Aventura Divorce Attorney Stephanie G. Morrow and her staff will support you and help you keep perspective during what can be an emotionally trying time. We know that many people experience fear and anxiety; we help mitigate these emotions with compassionate support and education. Ms. Morrow often recommends various tools such as counseling, self-help books, and prayer to help you become centered again. We will never push any agenda or philosophy — you are responsible for the ultimate decision, it’s our job to make sure that you are informed of the ramifications of that decision.
Some couples may also be able to consider an Aventura annulment lawyer if their case meets certain criteria. This may include misrepresentation, bigamy, or forced “shotgun” weddings.
Parents typically have questions about how the divorce will affect their time with their children. We help you understand child custody and visitation laws so that you can make decisions that are best for your children. We work with families, assisting them with custody evaluations, substantial time-sharing issues, visitation schedules, and modifications to agreements.
A Florida child support lawyer knows the specific guidelines that the courts have set. To talk with a knowledgeable attorney about how these guidelines affect you, contact our offices for a consultation. We help our clients know their rights so that they can make the best decisions for their children. We also understand that the needs of families can change after these decisions have already been made; we can help families with child support modifications.
Many divorcing couples consider going to an Aventura spousal support lawyer (often called alimony) as an issue to be resolved. There are many spousal support solutions available to meet your diverse needs such as temporary, rehabilitative, lump sum, and bridge-the-gap alimony. In determining whether a party is entitled to alimony, the court must determine that one party is in need of alimony and the other party has the ability to pay it. We can help walk you through the different spousal support options.
Florida courts divide marital property equitably. Often, the help of an experienced attorney is needed in helping couples determine which of their property is marital and which is non-marital. At our law office, we can help couples assess how the courts will view their property.
In military divorces, federal law can (and often does) trump state law. Attorney Stephanie G. Morrow is experienced in divorce matters and is familiar with the laws that apply to military divorces, including The Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act (USFSPA). Because of the involvement of one or both parties in the military, aspects such as pension or veteran’s benefits come into play. Aventura Divorce Attorney Morrow can help you navigate your divorce, as she understands the unique issues that come with military divorces.
