1 Divorce Attorney Clearwater - New Port Richey - Tampa Bay You need a knowledgable and experienced divorce attorney to fight for you because the stakes can't be higher! DIVORCE IS HIGHLY STRESSFUL The famous Holmes and Rahe psychological study found that divorce is the second most stressful situation that a person can face in their lifetime. Typical emotions include feelings of anger, betrayal, guilt, and depression. Parents are frightened about the impact that the divorce will have on their children. Everyone is anxious about the economic impact of a divorce. Added to the stress of the end of the marriage is the stress associated with the complicated legal system and the inherent ugliness of litigation The legal system recognizes how important your divorce is to you and your family. A divorce case is assigned to a Circuit Court Judge. Circuit Court judges are the judges that hear serious criminal cases and multimillion dollar lawsuits. The same judge that presided over a murder trial six months ago could be the judge in your divorce trial. The stakes can t be higher. The fate of everything you own, your future finances, and most importantly your children are effected by a divorce. You need a divorce attorney who is not only aggressive, but one who is knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced. Most of all, you need an attorney that cares about you and who you can trust to give you honest advice. The job of a good attorney isn t merely to be an advocate, but also to be a counselor to his clients. As your divorce lawyer, I will do everything I can under the law to help you. COMPLICATED AREA OF LAW Divorce law is technically one of the most difficult areas in which an attorney can practice. Divorce attorneys need experience with a combination of different fields of law: civil law, 1 / 5

2 property law, and tax law. Sometimes a divorce can get so ugly that a divorce attorney needs to also understand criminal law. Regardless of what challenges your case can present, I have the experience and knowledge necessary to secure a favorable result. WHY IS A DIVORCE CALLED A DISSOLUTION? Everybody knows the word divorce. But in Florida, the legal term for the end of a marriage is not a divorce but is instead a dissolution of marriage. The reason the term dissolution is used instead of divorce is because when two people get married, they create a legal entity called a marriage. Any property or debt acquired during the marriage is not owned by the individuals but is the property of the legal entity. This is very similar to the creation of a corporation, except the sole shareholders of the marriage entity are the husband and the wife. When shareholders wish to end a corporation, it is dissolved and the company s assets and liabilities are divided amongst the shareholders. Likewise, when a husband and wife seek a divorce, they are asking a judge to legally dissolve the marriage entity and similarly divide the marriage s assets and liabilities. DIVORCE ISSUES There are two main issues involved in a divorce: money and children. Issues involving children include custody (or timesharing), visitation (or parenting plans), parental relocation. Issues involving money include equitable distribution, alimony, child support, and attorney fees. As your Florida divorce attorney, my number one priority, with hard work and preparation, is to help you get custody of your children. Although all issues are important, I think it is appropriate that the best interests of your children should get the top priority 2 / 5

3 POST DIVORCE ISSUES There are two main post-divorce issues: Modifications of the Final Judgment (custody, child support, visitation, and alimony )and the Enforcement of the Final Judgment (Contempt). As your Florida divorce attorney, I can help you with any post divorce matter. MY PHILOSOPHY OF DIVORCE CASES I have two rules. Goal number one is to do everything I can in my power under the law to win your case. This includes teaching you how to behave and how to testify in order to convince the local judges to rule in our favor. Someone once said that a good attorney knows the law; a great attorney knows the judge. That s why it is important to retain a Florida divorce attorney with experience practicing before the judge hearing your case. Goal number two is to save you as much money while attempting to accomplish goal number one. DON'T HESITATE TO CALL A DEDICATED DIVORCE ATTORNEY If you need a Florida divorce attorney for any case in Clearwater, New Port Richey, or anywhere else in the Tampa Bay area, don't hesitate to call an experienced and knowledgeable divorce lawyer.
