Do you have children?

Do you own property together?

How will you properly and fairly divide your assets?

The end of a marriage can bring about many changes, including changes that affect your financial situation, living situation and relationship with your children. At the law offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, PA, we recognize what an emotional and stressful time this is and strive to vigorously address all of your family law issues with sensitivity while achieving the best results for our clients.

Although Florida is a no-fault divorce state (which means you do not need the approval of the other party to get divorced), there are so many questions and decisions that go into a divorce. The end of a marriage is a stressful and uncertain time for everyone involved, especially if there are minor children that stand to be affected by a dissolution of marriage.

The law offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, PA, located in the heart of Coral Gables, has been assisting clients with their family law, probate and guardianship issues for over 20 years. Actively participating in over 500 mediations since commencing practice over 20 years ago, we assist our clients and their family law needs, including:

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Domestic partnership agreements
  • Mediation of family law matter
  • Uncontested divorces
  • Contested divorce with minor children
  • Asset and debt division
  • Probate and estate matters
  • Alimony and child support
  • Petition to reopen cases for child custody or child support matters
  • Post-judgment modifications of final judgments and marital settlement agreements

We offer quick and comprehensive divorces whether your divorce is uncontested or contested. The differences are as follows:

Uncontested Divorces

Both parties are mutually agreeable to the divorce and generally all issues of minor children, child support, property division and others are agreed to in advance. Generally, we meet with both the husband and wife together. Attorney Jacqueline A. Salcines personally sits down with you and will work to iron out all the issues and draft a marital settlement agreement that is fair and impartial to all parties involved.

The costs are minimal, because typically your spouse will not be required to be served and you can be divorced in less than 15 days.

Contested Divorces

One party initiates this type of divorce. Typically, the wife or husband has disagreements that need to be resolved. There may be issues regarding child support, alimony or property division, which requires taking the matter before the judge.

With extensive knowledge in family law, we can help you work out an agreement or narrow the issues, either by mediation or settlement, so that you are protected.

Allow us to vigorously fight for your rights in court.
