Our divorce legal team is with you through pre-divorce planning, filing or answering a petition for dissolution of marriage, financial disclosures and the discovery process, negotiating and drafting property settlement agreements and parenting plans, and representing you in court on contested matters that can’t be resolved outside the courtroom. Our skilled divorce lawyers are trained and experienced in mediation and collaborative divorce as well as litigation; we are creative problem solvers who will work to resolve your case most efficiently and effectively. We have worked with the top forensic accountants and mental health professionals in the Tampa Bay area and utilize experts as needed to prepare and present the strongest case on your behalf. We’ll make sure you are well-represented in every aspect of your Florida divorce, including:
Child Custody – creating timesharing schedules and parenting plans that are practical, meet your needs, and represent your children’s best interests
Alimony – From temporary support during the divorce proceedings to transitional or permanent alimony afterward, we know the factors the courts look at when considering spousal support and will ably represent you whether you are seeking alimony or being asked to pay.
Child Support – Our experienced child support lawyers make sure you and your spouse are each reporting income accurately for an honest calculation of support. We are also prepared to argue for or against deviations from the child support guidelines based on the children’s best interests.
Equitable Distribution – Our firm concentrates on divorce cases where one or both parties have a high income or net worth. Clients rely on us for expert assistance in identifying and valuing marital vs. non-marital property, including business valuations and other complex asset matters.
Our Florida divorce attorneys are additionally well-versed in post-divorce modifications of custody or support based on supportive relationships, parental relocations, and other substantial changes in circumstances.
Prenuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements help couples start their marriage on the right foot with disclosures of financial information and shared expectations regarding marital and non-marital property and the payment of alimony in the event of divorce. If business or financial circumstances change during the marriage or marital troubles arise, a post-nuptial agreement can be a way to rebuild trust and restore confidence in the marital relationship. We can help you negotiate, draft and review a prenup or postnup that is valid, fair, enforceable, protects your rights and meets your needs. Our skilled and seasoned family law litigators also represent parties in litigation when the validity or enforcement of a marital agreement is challenged in court.
If parents are unmarried when their child is born, either the mother or the father will have to take positive steps to establish the child’s parentage before courts can legally order or enforce child support or timesharing. In contested cases, a paternity lawsuit may be necessary to resolve the dispute. Our team is experienced in handling paternity matters in St. Petersburg divorce cases, child custody disputes, and stand-alone proceedings.
Same-sex marriage has been valid in Florida and nationwide since 2015, thanks to cases decided in federal courts including the U.S. Supreme Court. The law on the books in Florida bans same-sex marriage, however, and the judicial climate in the courts today puts the constitutional right to same-sex marriage in a less certain position. Whatever the state of the law, count on the family law attorneys at Greene & Greene to offer sound legal advice and effective assistance to LGBTQ individuals dealing with marriage, divorce, child custody and other complex family law legal issues.
