Statistics reveal that half of all marriages will end up in a divorce. For many married couples, divorce is a real option. If a couple comes to that point, there is some important information that each person must know. First, legal separation is not recognized in Florida. However, a couple seeking legal recognition of their physical separation without divorcing takes advantage of several different state laws. These include laws that permit child support during marital separation, grant the couple the ability to draft a marital separation agreement, and award alimony in certain cases of marital separation absent divorce. Even though the Florida courts don’t have specific rules for separation, the courts can take an active role in the process, and the parties are not prohibited from maintaining any other proceedings for other or additional relief during their separation. Attorney Byrnes Guillaume explains the complexities of the divorce process, will clarify your rights, and protect your interests. In child custody cases, it is important that the separated parents come to terms for the benefit of their children. Why let the courts decide for you?

Byrnes Guillaume will strive to ensure the best outcome for all involved in your divorce, child custody and child support issues. Under Florida law, the rights of the child and the parent are regulated. Each parent should seek a qualified family lawyer to make certain the rights of all parties involved are addressed. Even if a divorce is amicable, legal representation for both parties is important. In Florida there are two issues related to the time children spend with each of their divorced parents. There is Parental time sharing (once known as visitation) and there is custody.
