Litigated Divorces

Though peaceful divorces are preferable it is not always possible. In such cases conferences are scheduled with experienced divorce attorneys to litigate simple and complex cases. They can deal with contested divorces, domestic violence, child relocation, modification and all areas of family law.

Family Mediation - Divorce Without War®

Couples facing divorce can reach a peaceful settlement before opposing attorneys are retained and often before suit is filed. An experienced divorce law mediator will conference with both spouses and guide them in understanding and resolving sometimes very emotional issues. When agreement is reached all of the documents necessary to obtain the divorce are prepared for the couple and they can then proceed with an uncontested divorce. This division of our office is headed by Gerald S. Deutsch who founded this program in the State of Florida in 1992. He has practiced divorce law in Florida for more than 50 years.

Form Preparation Assistance

Some couples have reached total agreement on their own and simply need non attorney asssistance in properly preparing all of the complex forms necessary for divorce and other family matters. Typically this less expensive service is available when there are no minor children issues. Divorce Center of Fort Lauderdale can provide you with this service.

Marriage and Parent-Child Counseling

When both parties agree that marriage or parent-child counseling would be helpful, couples facing divorce can have an opportunity to recieve professional assistance to address these emotional issues.

Residential & Relocation Assistance

Professional assistance for residential relocation and other property issues involved in a divorce.

Questions And Issues Facing Divorcing Couples

 
What if my spouse won’t agree to a divorce?
Florida is a “no fault” divorce state.  So long as you have been a resident of Florida for more than 6 months, the court has the authority to grant the divorce even if your spouse doesn’t agree.

 

Can I get this accomplished in a peacful fashion (mediation) before a case is filed?
Yes.  If you will both agree to sit with one of our mediators, the mediator (who does not act as an attorney for either party) will help you structure a peaceful divorce and then prepare all of the documents necessary to complete the divorce.

 

Should I consider marriage counseling?
If you both believe that professional counseling will guide you to salvaging the marriage, you can seek such assistance before proceeding with a case.

 

Is there assistance in educational and career opportunities available for during and after a divorce?
Yes.  Our clients can obtain educational and discuss career opportunities with Fort Lauderdale Key College located at our Divorce Center location.

 

What role does financial planning play in this process?
As a result of the dissolution of a marriage, either or both parties may need to get professional advice dealing with their future financial status.  A professional can help you get through this often confusing future planning.

 

So many issues that I must face at this confusing time in my life.  Can you list just a few other areas with which the CENTER can assist me?
  • Children issues- Time sharing, child support, relocation, life changing future circumstances
  • Distribution- dealing with the home, business & other assets and liabilities,
  • Spousal support (alimony), spousal and parent behavior
 
Why Me?
The rhetorical question often asked by troubled spouses. We can help.

 

Please call the CENTER for an appointment. Our client coordinator will schedule your appointment and coordinate it with the appropriate professional.

Testimonials

The following is my opinion:

When I decided to file for divorce, I contacted Divorce Center of Fort Lauderdale. This turned out to be the best decision I made and the overall experience was fantastic. From day one Gerald “Jerry” Deutsch (the main man) and his side kick Kelly were super helpful and understanding. They are great listeners and even greater advisors, dipping into their wealth of knowledge and working very effectively. They always return phone calls in a timely manner.

I highly recommend Divorce Center of Fort Lauderdale. The process unfolded just like they said it would.

John “Happy Client” Kamprveen

I feel that our divorce was handled very professionally and with warmth from Jerry and Kelly. This is a difficult time in our lives, and these folks made it about as good as it could be.

David

Outstanding job of marking the best of a worst situation.
