"Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer Who Handles Every Aspect of Your Case at Every Stage"
I am able to represent you in every aspect of a divorce, including equitable distribution of property, child custody and time sharing, child support, and alimony, which is also now commonly referred to as spousal support. I am able to handle a divorce from any point in the case, from the initial filing through post-judgment modifications and the enforcement of existing orders.
One of the more complex issues in a divorce is when one or both parties own a business or substantial assets. All marital assets are subject to the equitable distribution process. Therefore, there are many potential consequences that must be addressed when a family-owned or closely held company is involved in a divorce. Much of my practice involves advising business owners and other people with substantial assets as to their options in a divorce proceeding.
