When it comes to family strife or turmoil on the home front, most people want to handle their own affairs and protect their privacy (personal and financial) at all costs. However, in cases of divorce, you need to share personal information with professionals, such as Boca Raton family law attorneys, who can give you the benefit of their knowledge and experience. Sharing this information can help you make sound, informed decisions that protect your rights, financial interests and the well-being of those you care for most.
In recent years, the Florida courts have adopted a more modern, gender-neutral view of the family, where both spouses now have shared responsibilities for childcare, income and managing the household. Today’s trend in divorce is for parting couples to negotiate the terms of their own divorce settlement, rather than simply hope for the best in court. Divorcing couples should expect to take responsibility for creating their own parenting plan and determining the most equitable way to divide their assets and debts.
Experienced Palm Beach County family law attorneys can advocate for your rights and interests in negotiations and mediation with your spouse. If these negotiations fail to produce equitable results, the case can then proceed to the courtroom where a judge will decide the disputed issues.
