Tampa divorce attorney Paul E Riffel is committed to providing cost-effective assistance to divorcing individuals throughout Hillsborough County.
Handling A Wide Array Of Legal Issues Related To Divorce
At the law firm of Tampa divorce lawyer Paul E. Riffel, we provide assistance with the many different legal issues you may face during the divorce process. Only some of these include as follows:
Division of property – Florida law requires that all marital property be divided in an equitable manner. This does not mean equal, but instead the family courts focus on what type of division would be fair under the circumstances. Our law firm can help you protect your separate property and can fight for your rights to an equitable division of property, assets, and debts between you and your spouse.
Child custody and support – If you have children, determinations regarding custody, timesharing, parenting plans, and child support will be some of the most important during your divorce. An experienced divorce attorney can help you cooperate with your spouse whenever possible to agree on a custody arrangement and have it approved by the courts. If you are unable to agree, we can represent your rights to see your child and prove to the court that a favorable custody arrangement would be in the best interests of the child.
Alimony/spousal support – Under some circumstances, you may deserve to receive spousal support–also known as alimony–following a divorce. Conversely, your spouse may be demanding that you pay spousal support. In either situation, we can work to make sure the court determination on alimony is fair for you and that you receive the support you need.
Looking For Efficient Solutions For You
Too many divorcing spouses spend a long time arguing, refusing to agree, making new–and sometimes false–allegations, and using many other tactics to be adversarial and cause difficulty and delay throughout the process. Fortunately, an experienced divorce lawyer will know different methods of encouraging cooperation to increase efficiency whenever possible. Some of these methods may include:
- Simplified dissolution of marriage;
- Collaborative divorce;
- Mediation; or
We will evaluate which of these tactics may be appropriate in your divorce and will advise you of all possible options in your case.
