Divorce and Family Law

Providing a Personal and Professional Touch

No matter why you and your spouse have made the decision to divorce, the end of a relationship is a stressful time, filled with many emotions. The division of assets, debts, visitation schedules, child support, alimony, are overwhelming. You deserve to have someone to take you through the divorce process.

The experienced Family Law attorneys of The Ticktin Law Group understand your desire to resolve personal Family Law matters amicably. That is always our first approach, especially if children are involved.

However, this is not always possible. In the event that your spouse or former spouse is simply not willing to be reasonable, the attorneys of The Ticktin Law Group will take a firm position and deal with the problem as you believe would be best. There is always a balance, as divorces may become unnecessarily expensive on many levels, and you truly need to be fully informed of all consequences.

In Florida, Marriage Can End in Annulment or Divorce

An annulment is a court decree that a marriage is void. It’s as if the marriage never actually took place. There are very specific guidelines to seek annulment in Florida, so oftentimes, a couple will seek a divorce for practical purposes instead.

Divorcing in Florida has never been easier. Though, the divorce itself is never easy. It can take a toll on the individuals involved. There may be any number of reasons why someone might seek to end their marriage. But in Florida, it doesn’t matter. All that is required is for an admittance that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” No other cause is needed to file a divorce petition because Florida is what’s known as a “no-fault state.”

When considering divorce, the first step in the process should be to seek the assistance of a knowledgeable divorce attorney. Failure to seek professional help may result in filing the wrong forms or a delay in the divorce process.

We Handle More Than Just Divorce

The experienced Family Law attorneys of The Ticktin Law Group can help in a number of areas, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Domestic abuse

If you and your ex-significant other have children together, and you’re finding it frustrating to work out visitation and/or child support, we can help you obtain a court Order clearly outlining each parent’s responsibilities. The idea of going to court can be unnerving. You can count on us to bring the level of angst down to that of the business at hand.

Sometimes things change after the court enters a Final Judgment of Dissolution. If you believe your support payments are too high, or you are receiving too little, your visitation arrangement has changed, we can apply to modify the existing order to fit your current situation.

If you haven’t been receiving support which your former spouse has been ordered to provide, our Family Law attorneys will fight to enforce your rights and obtain the support to which you are legally entitled. While our attorneys are fierce litigators when necessary, we are truly caring individuals. We serve you.

If you have found yourself in an abusive situation with a significant other, someone you live or lived with, or a relative, first call 911, and then call us. No one should be afraid for their life, or for their child’s life. The law can help you to get the protection you need. We deal with these issues on a regular basis.

There are times in heated private family disputes, where one party falsely accuses the person with whom he or she is living, has dated, or is married, perhaps with the idea that it will give an advantage in the divorce proceedings, or a better shot at having the children for more time. If you have found yourself served with a temporary injunction, it is a serious matter.

Do not take the entry of an injunction against you lightly. Agreeing to the entry of an injunction, is an acknowledgment that all the alleged acts of violence are true, and that you did in fact commit those acts. It may be used against you in a later companion criminal case, in the Divorce or custody battle, or otherwise. Conviction of domestic violence could result in a jail or prison sentence, and a conviction of domestic violence cannot be sealed or expunged. Forever, employers, future significant others, your children, your family and friends, will have access to the public records marking you as a batterer. If you have been wrongfully accused, you need a strong advocate on your side.

Keeping Fees and Costs Down

Fees and costs can be humongous. This usually occurs in cases which should have been resolved but are excessive because of the emotional battle which needs to be extinguished. Often we see combatants become friends after the battle is over. These cases can be such a waste of money which is better spent on the needs of the family.

The Ticktin Law Group is committed to providing affordable legal representation. For the supporting spouse, we defend the issue of fees strongly when the litigation is being exacerbated by the non-paying party. This conduct leads to horrendous blood letting. For either side, we simply do not choose to participate in such conduct which benefits only the attorneys on the case. For the supported spouse, if needed, we have special fee arrangements which can be made, so that we are affordable, and more importantly, so that there are no surprises month by month.
