Types of Divorce in Florida

There are many different avenues you can use to secure a divorce in Florida. You should choose the divorce method that best suits you and your family's needs.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is another option that can be explored if you and your spouse have an amicable relationship or if you wish to end the marriage and arrange your own agreements without the determination of a judge. Nobody knows your marriage and circumstances better than you do, and a collaborative divorce is sometimes the better option as it has the benefits of being less expensive and more personalized.

Gray Divorce

Gray divorce is a term that was coined to describe late-in-life divorce or divorce for couples who have been married for 20, 30, and even 40 or more years. People who divorce later in life tend to have more assets and more accumulated debt, making gray divorce a complex process.

High Net Worth Divorce

If you and your spouse are divorcing with a lot of assets, the buzzword for this type of divorce is “high net worth divorce.” The best way to protect your assets and ensure a fair property division agreement is to speak with an experienced divorce lawyer.

Military Divorce

Various issues make military divorce distinct from traditional divorce. For example, property division can become complex when military pensions are involved, and custody can be difficult to determine if one spouse is currently stationed out of state or overseas. If you or your spouse is in the United States military, contact Givens Givens Sparks. We have divorce specialists on our side who have the experience and knowledge of both military and family statutes.

Same-Sex Divorce & LGBT Family Law

Legalizing same-sex marriage also introduced same-sex divorce in Florida. Our firm is equipped to handle the sensitive and unique issues facing LGBT couples in our state.
