Okaloosa County Divorce Lawyers

Guiding You Through the Divorce Process. Serving Okaloosa County & Beyond.

Have you been served with divorce papers or have you decided to go your separate way from your spouse? You likely have a number of concerns on your mind, such as what will happen to your kids or how your assets will be divided. It is important to try to keep a cool head and not get into any arguments with your spouse that can be avoided. Any efforts to maintain a sense of amicability is beneficial and may prevent the need for litigation.

Contested Divorce in Florida

Divorce can often be a contentious process when a couple can no longer agree on anything. Ending a marriage can often bring up feelings of resentment, rage, and grief, which prevents people from often making rational decisions. If one spouse is making the process difficult for the other, there is no other way to resolve the divorce than to go to court.

Not all divorces go through litigation. Litigation only becomes necessary when other alternative methods, such as mediation, have failed. For example, if a divorcing couple can’t agree on the following, they might need to go to court to resolve the issues:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Relocation
  • Spousal support

Many of these issues can become spiteful tools that affect everyone involved in the divorce in the short- and long-term. Our attorneys can help you navigate this time and protect your interests.
