Family law is a broad name for many different possible cases – from injunctions due to domestic violence
, dissolutions of marriage
, and child custody
cases. At Draper Law Office, we work with you to get through this difficult time by offering a level head and sound legal advice as you go through the process.
Our main focus in family law is the dissolution of marriage, or divorce. Florida is considered a "no fault" divorce state, which means that irreconcilable differences can be valid grounds for a divorce. Divorces can be uncontested or contested: in uncontested cases, the issues such as child custody and division of assets and debts have been settled. In a contested divorce, the parties have not agreed upon one or more of these issues. Even if the divorce is uncontested, it can be important to get an attorney involved so the process of filing the divorce and guiding it through the court system is quick and seamless.
