Attorney William R. Alexander is an experienced family law attorney serving clients in the Deltona, DeBary, Orange City and other areas throughout Volusia County, Florida who need legal assistance resolving dissolution of marriage and child custody issues.
When you are contemplating dissolution of marriage it is imperative that you speak with an experienced divorce attorney to protect your rights and assets. While Florida does offer a simple dissolution of marriage for married couples without minor children, divorces are rarely that simple. Firstly, spouses shouldn’t waive any of their rights before consulting a divorce attorney to fully understand the legal and financial impact it may have on their future. Second, many spouses don’t want to forfeit alimony as a simple divorce requires. Third, a spouse may not feel that marital assets and expenses are being distributed equitably. For these reasons, you should consult with a divorce lawyer like Attorney Alexander who specializes in Family Law.
Child custody laws in Florida have changed considerably in the last several years. Today, family courts consider the best interest of the minor child(ren) without giving preference to either parent. And due to the complicated nature of child custody laws, an experienced family law attorney is essential. During the dissolution of marriage process, parents will be required to submit a parenting plan and timesharing agreement for court approval. The plan outlines each parent’s responsibilities for raising their minor children and a visitation schedule. The family court may also require child support payments. Failure to make child support payments can result in substantial legal penalties. It is imperative to consult with an attorney who specializes in family law if you are unable to pay child support or want to petition the court to modify the child support order.
