What are the Divorce and Custody Alternatives in South Florida?

Nearly fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce. Although fewer people are getting married these days, many of those unmarried couples are still having children. The ending of these relationships is one of the most difficult and stressful things that a person will go through in their lifetime. You have a thousand questions. You are afraid, because you are facing a great unknown. How will I manage financially? How are we going to work out schedules for the children? Who gets custody? What is custody? How much will I get (or have to pay) in child support? Who gets the house? Can I afford the house? Am I going to get (or have to pay) alimony? How much? For how long? What about my pension?

The first, and probably most important question to ask yourself is what kind of divorce you want. There is more than one way to get to the finish line. At Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL, we know that collaborative divorce and family mediation in South Florida are better ways of  finding solutions for your family law disputes. Family mediation is the process in which you and your partner sit down and address the issues, guided by Nancy K. Brodzki, Esquire. Ms. Brodzki is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator who has the knowledge and expertise necessary to effectively help clients settle their disputes. Mediators don’t advocate for either party, rather they are completely neutral and impartial, using proven conflict resolution techniques to help you find solutions to complicated problems. Collaborative Divorce involves a team of attorneys and neutral professionals working together to assist the family in creating a fair and equitable settlement, taking the needs of the whole family (especially the children) into account. Florida’s legislature just passed the Collaborative Law Process Act, which recognizes Collaborative divorce as another approved settlement process and provides structure for all collaborative divorces.
