Daytona Beach Divorce Attorney
When you are going through a separation or divorce, few things are more important than understanding your legal rights and options and working with a lawyer who can protect your rights. At Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A., we fight on your behalf, and we keep you informed at every step of the process. It is our goal to fight for your right to keep your fair share.
Every divorce case requires a distribution of property and debt, establishing a parenting plan and child support if there are children, provisions for other common issues found in most divorces, and entry of a divorce decree which legally ends the marriage. Nevertheless, every divorce is as unique as the individuals and circumstances of each case.
The attorneys at Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A., understand where family law and other laws intersect, and most have developed proficiency in specific types of divorce cases. Our attorneys provide guidance to individuals going through both contested and uncontested divorces and will negotiate on your behalf. However, if the divorce negotiation does not work, they are prepared to be a persuasive advocate for you in court. Our attorneys are ready to handle all matter that may arise during divorce planning and in the course of a divorce, including:
- Division of property, distribution of assets in high-asset marriage dissolution
- Division of debts, uncovering of hidden assets and division of retirement assets
- Business valuation and dividing a business during a divorce
- Child custody and other child-related concerns
- Parenting time (access and visitation)
- Spousal maintenance awards
- Child support, including cases with self-employed parents
The attorneys at Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A. believe that the best result for any divorce client is to achieve an amicable settlement of the case which is easy to live with for the clients for the rest of their life. Since divorce cases can be complex, it is for your good that you hire a lawyer who has trial experience in the courtroom. Any lawyer who does not have experience in the courtroom cannot tell you what can possibly be the outcome of a settlement issue if it is not accepted by the other party. Our attorneys actually try cases in court so they know what can possibly be the outcome in a case like yours or what can happen at the trial.
Every Florida divorce case is of a different nature, and has different results and implications. Due to our immense experience in dealing with divorce cases, we know what can be the possible reaction of the judges in a specific case.
How is Child Custody Determined?
Unless otherwise agreed upon, primary custody of children is generally awarded to one party with the other party having rights to visitation with the children. If the court must determine custody, it is awarded based on the welfare and best interests of the children, after a consideration of the following factors:
- The circumstances of the parents and children
- The nature of the case
- Which parent is the most likely to allow frequent and continuing contact with the other parent
- Any acts of domestic violence
Both parents are obligated to support their children. In Florida, the amount of child support is determined by following the formulas set forth in the child support guideline schedules. See Fla. Stat. Ann. 61.30. Ordinarily, the obligation to support a child ends when that child reaches 18, marries, or becomes financially independent.
Few events in life are as stressful as the dissolution of a marriage. If you are contemplating divorce, we can help. We will aggressively fight for your rights while focusing on a smooth transition for you and your children.
