The divorce process


Why is important to have a divorce lawyer by your side

The divorce, known in Florida as a dissolution of marriage, is the legal process where a marriage or marital union ends, involving the cancellation and/or the reorganization of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage.

In the United States, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples divorce and every 13 seconds a divorce takes place in U.S. According to a national survey, the lack of commitment is the most common reason given by divorcing couples, while the arguing and infidelity takes the second and third place in the ranking.

The divorce could be a tough, stressful, and emotional process, especially when kids are involved. Usually, the kids don't want their parents to separate or they tend to have mixed feelings about the divorce, especially when they see their parents fighting every day.  They also tend to take it personally, thinking that their parents are separating because of them.

For the adults it's not easier. They find themselves facing a long road full of informal and formal obstacles such as the division of marital assets and debts, alimony, custody, child support, taxes, and an ocean of documents they need to fill. Beside all these, they are also facing the loneliness and even depression.

Even if we talk about an at-fault or no-fault divorce or about a simple or collaborative divorce, having a lawyer by your side during this process is very important. Not only for the legal aspects of it, but sometimes a lawyer can be a motivational support for you to get through the process more easily and successfully.
