Divorce

Going through a divorce can be stressful, difficult and very emotional. The State of Florida requires that a person filing for a Dissolution of Marriage prove that they have resided in the State for a minimum for six (6) months prior to the date of filing. In addition the Courts must find that the marriage has irretrievably broken down in order to obtain a divorce.

When you hire an attorney you enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have someone who will advocate and protect your interests. At The Hamil Scott Law Firm we are extremely passionate about protecting your rights and giving you the individualized attention you deserve. We invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment for your confidential consultation.

ALIMONY

Alimony also known as spousal support can provide you with funds to maintain your standard as you transition out of the marriage. If you believe you should be awarded alimony you would need to show the court that you are in need of these payments and that your spouse is able to pay them. The courts will also take into consideration the duration of the marriage, your income relative to your spouse’s income and your ability to earn money as you transition out of the marriage.

There are several types of alimony: Bride the Gap Alimony, Rehabilitative Alimony, Permanent Alimony, Durational Alimony, Temporary Alimony and Lump Sum Alimony.

At the Hamil Scott Law Firm we will work to ensure that you receive or pay a fair amount of alimony. We invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment for your confidential consultation.

CHILD CUSTODY

Child custody now known as time sharing can be a very contested area in any divorce proceedings. There are two types of child custody in the State of Florida- Sole Custody and Joint Custody.

Every parent absolutely loves their children and the thought of having to share custody with another parent or even losing custody can be a very emotional experience.

At the Hamil Scott Law Firm we are compassionate about our clients and the outcome of their cases. Our Firm is committed to guiding you through this challenging process of finalizing a child custody agreement and arriving at the best solutions that will be in the best interests of the child. We invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment for your confidential consultation.

CHILD SUPPORT

The end of a relationship can be a very stressful and difficult time in anyone life. This situation is compounded of course when children are involved. 

Here at The Hamil Scott Law Firm we are prepared to guide you through this process and explain your rights and responsibilities to ensure that you obtain a fair child support order, whether you are concerned about your rights to receive or your obligation to pay child support.

RELOCATION

Parents often times move after a divorce to get a fresh start, education, job or for health reasons. However when children are involved moving becomes more difficult.

Under Florida statute, a parent may not relocate with the minor child to a new location more than fifty miles from their current location without the written consent of the parent or a court order authorizing the relocation. Relocation can potentially be a complex legal issue and divorced parents more often than not are not able to agree to the terms of relocation. If you are considering a move with your child, you need to contact The Hamil Scott Law Firm as soon as possible to discuss your legal options and responsibilities with regard to child relocation.
