Divorce/Dissolution of Marriage/Alimony
While most of us call it divorce, the correct term, according to the state of Florida is “dissolution of marriage.” If you want a divorce in Florida, it only requires the marriage to be “irretrievably broken.” This essentially means the marriage cannot be saved through counseling or any other means.
When you go through a divorce, it will cause many emotions as dissolving the marriage may include other family law issues. Often, divorce includes issues, such as child custody (time-sharing), child support, alimony, division of assets/liabilities, and many other issues.
Hiring the right family law attorney in Jacksonville will ensure the process goes as smooth as possible. Even the most complex divorce can be kept from getting out of hand when you hire the right divorce lawyer.
Child custody and time-sharing can be contentious issues during a separation or divorce. In the state of Florida, parents are required to develop a “parenting plan” that details the responsibilities each parent will have for the child or children, and that maps out the time each parent will spend with them. Having an attorney help you craft your plan is essential to ensure you get the most time with them and retain decision making power over aspects of your children’s lives such as education, religion, schooling, and more.
Child support is another matter which is often addressed during a separation or divorce. In Florida, child support payments are made from one parent to another until the child reaches 18 years of age or graduates from high school.
Child abuse and neglect charges/allegations are another serious matter that can arise and will require swift diligence and experience to handle.
Tassone, Dreicer & Hill can assist you with your child custody and/or child support case, or help you fight abuse and neglect charges/allegations.
While your divorce may be over and it may be in the past, sometimes, elements of the divorce need to be modified. The state of Florida allows for modifications to the alimony, child support, and time-sharing agreements, in certain cases. Maybe you’ve had a significant change in income or your residence or employment will be changing soon? Changes such as these could trigger a modification.
When a substantial change has happened, it may be time to look into a modification to the current agreements stemming from your divorce. If you need to modify the child support, alimony or time-sharing agreement, call the law offices of Tassone, Dreicer & Hill. We will help to ensure the process goes smoothly and we will work hard to accomplish the modifications you seek.
Along with modifications to the agreements, it’s possible you may need to enforce the agreement. Maybe your ex-spouse hasn’t been paying child support or spousal support. When support goes unpaid, it may be considered contempt of court. Sanctions up to and including incarceration are possible.
Not only does enforcement apply to support, but it can also apply to the time-sharing and parenting plan if one party isn’t holding up their end of the agreement.

At Tassone, Dreicer & Hill, we help clients with enforcement of agreements regularly. Our legal team offers decades of experience in family law. Call us today and find out how we can help.
