Getting married and having kids is easy. Getting divorced, splitting assets and "dividing" children - is another story. It can quickly get bitter and costly, but there are ways to make the process less painful and the outcome more agreeable.
The events leading to the litigation of a family law matter are, for many, the most difficult of their lives.

Divorce & Related Matters
Financial issues are a major concern during a divorce and beyond. You want to know what will happen to the house, the car, the retirement funds and even the family pet. In theory, fair property division means splitting everything 50/50. Of course, this is just a starting point, as there are a variety of issues that need to be taken into consideration, the most important being whether property is marital or non-marital. Our attorneys have the experience to help you protect what is yours.
When a divorce is over, it is not necessarily final. Situations may arise that require post-judgement modification. A job loss or other financial change could require a change in spousal support or child support. There is also the issue of enforcement. When one party fails to follow the divorce judgement requirements, legal action may be required. Our lawyers handle all of these post-divorce matters.
The time to thing about how a divorce would affect your life is before you file for divorce, not after. Here at Stephen H. Artman, P.A., we offer a free initial consultation to explain Florida divorce law in easy-to-understand language. Contact our office today to speak with a family law attorney.
