Divorce FAQs

Divorce can be a difficult and confusing time in a person's life. At the law offices of Shawn Reid, Attorney at Law, we are aggressive family law lawyers who work to provide clarity in a chaotic situation. Here are some frequently asked questions about divorce in Florida.

How long will I have to pay alimony to my former spouse?

The terms and conditions of alimony can vary greatly from one situation to the next. An experienced Melbourne divorce attorney can tell you what you can expect to owe.

Do I really need to hire a lawyer to get divorced?

Many people think that it is not worth it to work with an attorney when they get divorced. They may feel that an added expense is not worth it. However, a do-it-yourself divorce doesn't have the legal advice that comes with an attorney — advice that could be valuable many times over. Creating an agreement yourself may create a minefield of problems later on.

Aren't prenuptial agreements only for the rich and famous?

In fact, having a prenuptial agreement in place can provide peace of mind for many couples, not just celebrities. Couples who are already married can also complete a postnuptial agreement, which covers a lot of the same ground as a prenup.

We understand that the divorce process can be intimidating and more than a little scary. In order to help ease your mind, initial consultations with our attorneys are complimentary. To set up your consultation, complete our online contact form or call us at 321-426-1840 or toll free at 800-639-8070.
