DIVORCE:

Simply contemplating divorce or actually being served with divorce papers can be an extremely emotional and stressful situation. A divorce typically involves many issues such as child custody and support, visitation, alimony and spousal support, possession of the marital home, the relocation of children, as well as the division of assets and liabilities.

CHILD CUSTODY:

There are very few things as important as children. At the Law Firm of Jeffrey Hap, one of the most important issues that often arise with our clients concerns the custody of children. In child custody cases, the Court is obligated to do what is in the best interest of your child. In order for the Court to make the right decisions, it is important that the unique and specific circumstances of your case are brought to the Court’s attention.

CHILD SUPPORT:

Both during a divorce action, and after the divorce is resolved, both parents are responsible for supporting their children. This may either be through physical custody or financial support, commonly known as Child Support. In Florida, Child Support is based on a unique formula that incorporates the income of both parents, as well a number of other important factors. The goal of the Law Firm of Jeffrey Hap is to ensure that you are obligated to pay the proper amount of Child Support by relying on all of the facts of your particular matter.

ALIMONY/SPOUSAL SUPPORT:

Spousal support is an important issue that is regularly raised in divorce proceedings. Also known as alimony, spousal support is the monetary support paid by one spouse to the other in order to attempt to maintain a lifestyle. This support may be temporary, such as during the course of the divorce, or permanent in nature. Determination of spousal support/alimony can be a very complicated matter. To begin with, there are a number of forms of alimony including permanent alimony, rehabilitative alimony, lump sum alimony, bridge the gap alimony, and nominal alimony. There are also tax consequences depending on the type or form of support you negotiate.

DIVISION OF PROPERTY:

Division of property, that is assets and liabilities is known as equitable distribution in Florida. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean that the property is divided 50/50 between the parties. The Court has discretion in dividing up the assets and liabilities as to who gets what, and how much each spouse actually receives. All types of property may be subject to equitable division including but not limited to cash, bank accounts, any liquid assets such as stocks and bonds, 401K’s, retirement and pension plans, assets such as real estate, vehicles, boats and planes.

MODIFICATIONS & ENFORCEMENT:

Generally, in the world of divorce and family matters, nothing is written in stone. Issues may occur after a divorce is final. These type of issues are commonly known as post-marital matters. Such post-marital matters may include issues like modification of child support, modification of alimony (upward or downward modifications), visitation modifications, or custody modifications.

RELOCATION OF CHILDREN:

Often one parent or the other ends up with residential custody of the children. Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, the parent with the residential custody may need to relocate. Such relocation may simply be in another close county in Florida, or may be within the state of Florida but significantly far away, or completely out of Florida to a distant state, or even to a foreign country.

PATERNITY:

We represent both unwed mothers and unwed fathers in regards to their rights and liabilities concerning their children. Establishing paternity is necessary in order to establish custody, child support, child support arrears, reimbursement for medical bills due to the birth of the child, and visitation. Without establishing paternity, the Court cannot rule on these issues.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:

The allegation of domestic violence is often accurate and must be considered in child custody and visitation orders. Unfortunately, sometimes the allegation of domestic violence is simply used as a tactic in a divorce proceeding to gain an advantage in the divorce or custody matter.

WILLS and PROBATE:

Everyone should at least have a Will. A Will is a written communication by which a person directs how their estate is to be distributed upon death. The estate consists of property which is left behind by someone after death. Without a Will, the Courts and/or the State may determine who or if anyone gets your property upon death.
