2. Are you open to marriage counseling? We have excellent recommendations if this is still an option.
3. Gather initial financial records using the Florida Financial Affidavit as a guide.
4. Take an inventory of your personal belongings that do not fit into the financial affidavit.
5. Get a copy of your credit report to verify your debts.

Divorce & Family Law in Naples Is What We Do

Family Law refers to Florida law, rules, regulations, and court procedures involving the family unit when that unit comes under the purview of the courts. We at the Law Office of Russell Knight value your family as it exists now and will exist in the future. Most family law matters need the attention of a conscientious, skilled attorney who can successfully process your divorce and/or child custody matter.

Child Support

Child Support in Florida is determined by a multitude of statutes.  The first step in determining child support in Florida is determining whether the non-primary parent has substantial or non-substantial parenting time with the child.

Alimony

In 2011 The Florida legislature made extensive revisions to Florida’s alimony statute but, despite that, alimony in Florida is not calculated in a predictable fashion.

Parenting Time

Since 2008, there is no “visitation” in Florida law.  It is instead called “parenting time” which is both a clearer definition of what visitation really is.
