In the state of Florida, divorce is initiated when either you or your spouse files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. Since the petition must be certified by the court, it is important to have a reputable and established divorce attorney at your side. Art Fulmer, Jr. and Christal Holmes are seasoned attorneys that will Stand for You in divorce court.
It may be comforting to know that the goal of the court in the event of divorce is fundamentally positive – as expressed in Section 61.001, Florida Statutes. The marriage dissolution laws are designed for three core reasons:
- “To preserve the integrity of marriage and to safeguard meaningful family relationships”;
- “To promote the amicable settlement of disputes that arise between parties to a marriage”; and
- “To mitigate the potential harm to the spouses and their children caused by the process of legal dissolution of marriage.”
Our attorneys, Art Fulmer, Jr. and Christal Holmes, handle each and every case with the same dedication and attention, whether it is a simplified divorce or more a complex case. We guide and support our clients every step of the way, from the initial consultation to the final hearing. We attend each mediation and court date with our clients, explaining the process the entire way while we effectively present or defend your case.
