Getting a divorce or a dissolution of marriage can be one of the most stressful times in your life. There are many important choices that need to be made following the decision to actually get a divorce. These include formulating a parenting plan, deciding a timesharing / visitation schedule, calculating child support obligations as well as the division of marital assets and liabilities.
While almost all couples go into divorce proceedings hoping for a smooth transition from marital to post-divorce life, this doesn’t always happen. Regularly, divorcing spouses are unable to agree on parenting decisions, a parenting plan, timesharing schedule or how to divide marital assets and liabilities. This is what Florida law categorizes as a “contested divorce,” and often times requires a judge to make the decisions that cannot be agreed upon for the couple.
