If you’re contemplating divorce in the Orlando area, HAWM Law understands it can be a very emotional process. Our experienced attorneys can help explain your rights, options, and protect your best interest and the best interest of your child.

A marriage joins two people together; it is based on a legal contract entitling each person to certain rights. A divorce is a court order terminating the marriage. The “petitioner” is the person filing the divorce documents to start the case, while the other person is called a “respondent”.

divorceWhat if your spouse is being friendly and amicable, do you still need to hire an attorney?

Each situation is unique and the legal aspects of divorce can be complicated. The decisions that are made can affect the rest of your life. They can also be very difficult to undo. So even if you and your spouse are friendly and have agreed upon custody and property, it is a good idea to seek legal advice from a qualified attorney.

Why Hire a Divorce Attorney

Divorce attorneys know the law and can apply it to your unique situation and set of facts. It’s important to understand your rights and the attorney will know if the conditions and terms are fair.

Family law attorneys will also have a better understanding of the procedures and practices of the court that will help move your case along to a timely resolution. Many divorce cases can continue for years due to procedural errors. This can be avoided with the help of a competent attorney. An attorney will also be able to advocate your desires and wishes in the case of a contested divorce, where you and your spouse cannot agree on how to resolve your issues. Even when there is an agreement, there is more paperwork and legal filings that will need to be prepared to accomplish the dissolution of marriage.
