There are thousands of people in Florida who find themselves in family law court for the first time and don’t know what their options are. From divorce to child custody and support to alimony issues, there are many family law cases that can become complex in a hurry. Knowing your options can help when it comes to navigating family law courts in Florida.
Divorce cases can be, without a doubt, some of the most complex family law cases a person might experience. Many divorce cases involve families with children, which just adds a whole other layer of issues and potential disputes to resolve. A couple without children might just be at odds over the division of property, but a couple with children may experience disputes over the right amount of child support to be awarded and the right child custody arrangement for the spouses and children alike. In the worst of cases, there may even be allegations of domestic violence involved.
Some cases will need to go through the litigation process, with each step of the case fought in a courtroom in front of a judge. However, in many other cases, the soon-to-be ex-spouses can at least attempt to negotiate a settlement out-of-court, which can then be approved by the judge.
