Marital & Family Law
Marital & Family Law
If you are in a marriage that’s no longer fulfilling your needs, talk to us. We’re experienced in helping families solve problems and move forward in a cooperative way that starts the healing process for everyone, including the children.
In some cases, a post-nuptial agreement may be an avenue to avoid divorce and reduce tensions. At other times or in different circumstances, dissolution of the marriage may be the only viable solution. Neither is easy.
Choosing a lawyer who looks for solutions through negotiation and mediation is your best defense to avoid a long, protracted divorce that can permanently scar the family and drain resources. Lori Clifford is Florida Bar Board Certified in Marital & Family Law, the highest level of evaluation of an attorney’s competency and proficiency within a specialty, as well as professionalism and ethics in practice. As a specialist in marital and family law, Clifford Family Law will represent your best interests and is fully prepared to go to trial to protect your interests where negotiations fail.
Separation & Divorce
Discovering and dividing the property, business interests, and liabilities can be complicated and wearing.
Clifford Family Law handles contested and uncontested divorce matters, no matter how complex, including:
- Separation agreements
- Property and debt valuation and division
- Spousal support
- Mediation representation
- Dissolution of marriage
- Judgment modifications and enforcement
We will always be honest and straightforward with you to make the process as painless as possible. We will bring in accounting and financial professionals, as needed, to help you identify and value marital, non-marital, business, and other assets to obtain a fair and equitable settlement.
Consider the Children
Children are often unintended victims of marital discord. Protecting their feelings and best interests can be stressful.
Blending families’ schedules and needs together into an integrated, workable plan is one of the most important steps in resolving differences and moving forward.
- Child support arrangements
- Parenting plans
- Time-sharing after Relocation
Getting resolutions that are in the family’s best interest takes experience, clear communication, and calm reason. While some attorneys needlessly prolong negotiations and family acrimony for their own economic gain, we work solely in your best interest toward an early and amicable solution to help you get the pain behind you and restore your life.
Clifford Family Law handles pre- and post-nuptial agreements and domestic partnership agreements that set out the expectations and guidelines of the relationship, including property ownership, financial arrangements, child custody, and healthcare directives to protect the parties in the event of death, separation, or divorce.
