Our Tampa Divorce Attorneys will aggressively represent you in your divorce to protect you and your children’s rights and futures. The following are common questions posed by individuals during their cases, answered by our Tampa divorce lawyer.

Who gets the kids?

Florida Courts focus solely on what is in the best interest of the children when determining who the Tampa Divorce Attorneychild will stay with. Florida Courts have a strong preference for involving both parents in a child’s life. Many parents request sole custody, but this is somewhat rare because of the policy consideration for both parents to be a part of a child’s life.  Our Attorneys will make sure you get as much time with your children as possible!

During the court’s analysis, it will consider the following factors pursuant to Florida Statute Section 61.13:

As you can see, the Court can literally consider nearly anything in determining which parent spends the majority of the time with the minor children.  We will assist in ensuring all relevant factors are brought to the Court’s attention.

Who gets the stuff? Who gets the debt?

Florida Statute Section 61.075 codifies “equitable distribution” which relates to who gets the assets and debts during a Florida divorce.   In short, marital assets and marital debts are divided equally, 50/50 unless the parties are able to prove to the Court, why the assets and debts should be divided unequally.  At the end of the day, this is where our Tampa Divorce Attorneys can help to ensure you get what you deserve out of your divorce or other family law matter.  We discuss elsewhere on our blog what constitutes a marital asset in our article titled “Considering A Divorce, What is Equitable Distribution?”  It provides a brief overview of equitable distribution of marital debts and assets.
