No matter the complexity of the potential divorce, Ralph the Lawyer will meet with you for a free initial consultation to review your options.
In a dissolution of marriage, a court separates marital assets and liabilities from non-marital assets and liabilities. This could be hard to determine on your own. Ralph the Lawyer can help you determine what is considered marital and non-marital. This will help give you a better understanding of what is to come in a divorce proceeding.
When distributing the marital assets and liabilities, the courts need to be equal unless relevant factors dictate justification for unequal distribution. Some of the relevant factors are (Florida Statute Section 61.075):
In Florida, a Paternity case is to determine the biological and legal father of a child and to award parental rights. There can be no order against a Father without this determination. Children conceived or born during a marriage are presumed to be the children of the husband and wife. Without marriage, there is no presumption and all parental rights and obligations, such as timesharing and child support, are not automatically assigned to the biological father.
Paternity can be established by two different blood tests:
Although there may be a divorce decree, child custody or timesharing order, or child support order already in place, circumstances may change in life. You have the right to motion the court to request an amendment to these orders. Sometimes circumstances have not changed but one party is violating an order, you have the right to request the court to compel or use other means to enforce the orders.
Although Ralph the Lawyer does not want to meet you under these circumstances, if you find yourself in them, he is here to assist you through these trying times.
An uncontested divorce can be a good situation for everyone involved. No arguments and all parties cooperating leads to a smooth and quick divorce. Although both parties agree, divorce agreements are legally binding. It is always a good idea to have an attorney at least look over the details to ensure your best interests are protected.
The Self-Empowerment Program (SEP)
Not all divorces are complex and require the expense of a lawyer’s representation. In Florida, the courts have made it much easier for individuals to file for divorce, and other family law issues, without the need for a lawyer. However, I’ve seen that even this process can be confusing for the average individual unfamiliar with the court system.
Ralph the Lawyer recognized this dilemma and came up with the unique, Self-Empowerment Program (SEP). The trademarked SEP program is designed to guide qualifying individuals through the court process without the unnecessary expense of hiring a lawyer.
With reasonable, flat rate fees, qualifying individuals can have the assistance of an experienced firm paralegal guide them through the complexities of the form-driven court process, providing a roadmap for what to expect at hearings, and providing limited instruction throughout the process. You will be guided, step-by-step under the supervision of a paralegal, with filling in the forms and filing them on the court’s on-line portal. Your filings and notices from the court will be sent directly to your email. Furthermore, the experienced paralegal will be available to you for any procedural questions through the divorce.
While you will not be represented by a lawyer in this process, at any time along the way, should your issues evolve into those that may need a lawyer, Ralph the Lawyer will be available to provide legal consultation with reasonable rates.
