Family Law and Divorce in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota, Pinellas County, and surrounding West Florida areas.
Consulting with your divorce lawyer and receiving advice about the divorce process prior to filing is almost always beneficial. Areas of complexity exist that are not apparent to most parties prior to being a litigant in the divorce process.
These areas include the timing of business valuations, protection of nonmarital assets, the ramifications of commingling, the imputation of income to a non-earning or under-earning spouse, children considerations, and the like.
If it appears that divorce is likely to be in your future, you may well wish to properly position yourself rather than just being reactive in the litigation. My job is to introduce you to that process.
Part of that planning effort is to identify such existing documentation as may support your position. Where documentation is lacking or non-existent, pre-divorce planning may allow you the opportunity to properly create and document that evidence. Cases are usually won by the party that is best prepared from an evidentiary standpoint.
