Do You Provide Phone Consultations?
We’d be glad to hear from you over the phone. Nevertheless, we recommend visiting us in person for the best consultation experience. If you have concerns about meeting face to face, we can discuss virtual options.
How Should I Prepare for Divorce Proceedings?
The best way to prepare for a divorce is to get your finances in order. Keep a record of all your financial information, so it’s easier to establish how much your total assets are worth. Moreover, financial stability will be vital as you exit your marriage and seek custody of your children.
How Do I Establish Paternal Rights?
A name listed on the birth certificate does not guarantee paternal rights in Florida. All issues of paternal rights must be settled in court. Fortunately, the team at Hudson Family Law can help you maneuver through this process.
How Long Will My Divorce or Family Law Matter Take?
There is no way to estimate how long your case will take without first learning your unique circumstances. Every family law matter is different, and cases may take longer depending on the attorney, litigation, and general handling of the case. When you consult with our divorce law firm, we’ll be able to better estimate how long your issue may take to resolve.
Can I Get Alimony If I Wasn’t Married Very Long?
Yes. Alimony is dependent on the length of a marriage. Instead, alimony is determined based on the need and ability of each party respectively. However, you may be eligible for a different type of alimony depending on the length of the marriage.
How Does the Court Divide Marital Assets?
In most cases, division starts with a 50/50 split. However, one party may dispute the other’s right to certain items or assets. Inheritances, income earned outside of the marriage, and assets acquired without your partner may all be reasons to dispute an equitable split.
Can a Father Have Visitation Rights If He Isn’t Paying Child Support?
Child support payments do not entitle a parent to visitation rights. Regardless of whether a father is paying child support, he must go through the court to have legal access to the child.
