Complex Divorce Litigation Attorney In Fort Lauderdale

Divorce can be a tumultuous and complicated process. This goes not just for the couple separating but also the family that they still share through their children. Disputes over material ownership, debts, money, and children’s issues are only some of the things you will have to contend with.

These situations require a compassionate eye, careful attention, and a professional manner. Complex family law litigation requires an attorney who can get you the results you are entitled  too, with as little bad blood as possible.

To be sure, these sorts of scenarios are far from amicable. Finding a balance between your happiness and your ex-spouse can be difficult.

Scott A. Levine and his family law firm, located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, have been helping families through difficult times since 2004.

Timesharing & Support

Children, more than the parents themselves, are the most affected by a divorce. Divorce is not simply about assets. It is about maintaining a post-divorce family structure that still supports the needs of the children and helps them adjust to parents who now have two households.

Every parent, going through a divorce, needs someone from the outside looking in to give the best advice possible, under the situation.  Common issues include the formulation of a parenting plan and timesharing schedule that is in the best interests of the children, and workable; the provision of health care coverage for the children; and reliable communication between the parents about children’s issues, following the divorce.  In addition, in some instances, a parent may wish to relocate with a child, following divorce, and this is known as parental relocation. We can assist you with these, and other, issues.

A divorce does not have to be more painful than it already is. A child needs to know that their parents still love them. A child support attorney from our firm can help make that transition much easier for the child.

Asset Division

As to be expected, Complex Divorce Litigation can have difficulties when it comes to satisfying both parties. Even having one party be happy is an uphill battle. Under Florida law, the Court is empowered to divide marital assets and marital liabilities, through a process known as “equitable distribution.”

This does not mean an equal division. The court can and will take a look at several different factors in considering how to fashion the equitable distribution scheme.  It is our firm’s utmost duty to get you what you are entitled to receive, and to ensure that you are treated fairly in the process.

Property

The majority of married couples are expected to have a primary household where their family lives. In divorce cases, this is often the first dispute. The primary home, being the center of your family’s lives, is very important to define.

The fair division of property is still a complicated issue. When two spouses agree on terms, it is a straightforward approval from the court. However, if they end up disagreeing, that is where we come in to negotiate terms. This is to help the court to make a fair assessment of the assets and decide who gets which assets. Scott A. Levine, P.A. can help you with property disputes and get you the best terms according to your living situation and more.

Domestic Disputes

Often, a divorce is not amicable. It could be a case of one spouse being abusive to another, be it physically, mentally, or both. In such cases, call us immediately at 954-587-2244 to get the due help you need. Our firm promises to be discreet and efficient. It is known to us that divorce in these types of situations can be sensitive. You and your family’s safety will be our top priority.

Alimony

Financial stability after a divorce can be difficult for a family that has accustomed itself to a married lifestyle. However, that does not mean it is impossible. For spouses who need additional finances after a divorce, alimony or spousal support ensures that you will have sufficient income to meet your needs, following the divorce.  The formulation of alimony, including the amount, and term (how long it will be paid for), is one of the most challenging things in a divorce.  Our firm will help you make sure that you receive a proper amount of spousal support [alimony], for an appropriate period of time.  

If you face the prospect of paying alimony, our firm will make sure that you do not overpay, and that the length of the alimony award is proper.  Alternatively, we can discuss other ways to avoid alimony or to minimize your alimony exposure.
