There are two ways to get divorced in Florida: the slow and expensive way, or the fast and efficient way. Either way, you will need to obtain a divorce to move on with your life. Fear of being judged about your sensitive family matters should not add further stress and expense to an already difficult situation. An experienced family law lawyer knows that compassion and understanding are just as important as providing solutions tailored to fit a family's legal troubles.
I am Christopher Mast, a family law attorney in Naples, Florida. I represent people who are going through the divorce process and dealing with other family law concerns in Collier and Lee counties of southwest Florida.
Helping You Get Through Your Divorce
Divorce is a painful and emotional process. Without a sensible and compassionate attorney to guide you, it is easy for a divorce to end up in a battle. Couples can argue over things as petty as household furnishings and as important as the affection of children and the family home. I try to help my clients get past emotion and am focused on resolution, including taking a hard look at the economic realities involved in their divorce.
The truth is that two households are more expensive than one, and you will need your assets to support yourselves and your children after a divorce. To fight over property now will only enrich your lawyer and deplete your family's future assets.
I will help you focus on resolving critical divorce issues quickly and efficiently, with a minimum of pain. These issues include:
- Marital property division
- Alimony (spousal support)
As a skilled Florida attorney experienced in other legal concerns, my firm can also assist with complex marital asset and debt division involving small family businesses, or adjustments to estate plans and wills for divorcing couples.
Using Premarital Agreements To Effectively Plan
After going through one divorce, many Florida residents opt for a premarital agreement for any subsequent marriage. A premarital agreement allows you to decide in advance how property will be divided in the event of a future divorce. I will help you prepare a premarital agreement that clearly establishes your rights and liabilities regarding financial resources, family business succession and more.
