If you or your spouse has filed for divorce or threatened to file for divorce, you have many unanswered questions.

It is imperative you do not take any actions that will hurt your case. Plantation legal separation attorney, Kelley A. Joseph, can sit down with you while you are in the early stages of a divorce and help you develop a plan to protect your interests.

Coordinated Strategy To Strengthen Your Case

The time between when a divorce is filed and when it is finalized may require parties to reach temporary agreements or file for injunctive relief with the court. Separation issues that may be addressed during this period include:

  • Staying in or leaving the family home
  • What to do with a home that is in foreclosure
  • What to do with marital assets and deciding who pays for household expenses
  • Temporary time sharing and child custody
  • Temporary alimony and child support
  • Taking children out of state

When there are concerns or allegations of domestic violence, a restraining order may or may not be a strategy in your case, but many times these matters require prompt legal action.

Joseph will carefully review all your options and help you understand the long-term implications of your actions.
