In Florida, there is a presumption that marital property and debts will be divided equally between the spouses as a starting point. First, the property must be classified as either marital or separate property; then, its value must be determined. Nikki A. Uri frequently works with experts to determine income and property valuation.

The Florida courts no longer award “child custody” or “visitation.” Instead, the courts order a parenting plan and time sharing. Shared parental responsibility for major decisions also is awarded unless it would be detrimental to the child’s wellbeing.

The court will determine the amount of child support you are required to pay or entitled to receive pursuant to the child support guidelines. Nikki A. Uri will help ensure that this amount is fair under Florida law.

There are many different types of alimony in Florida. Judges have broad discretion when awarding alimony and will consider many factors, including the length of the marriage, the standard of living established during the marriage, the incomes and financial resources of each spouse, the health of each spouse, the needs of the requesting spouse and the other spouse’s ability to pay. Whether you are defending against an alimony award or seeking an alimony award, she can help you.

If one party is unable to afford legal fees in divorce, he or she may ask for the other spouse to pay attorney’s fees. Nikki A.  Uri represents individuals who are requesting attorney’s fees as well as those who are defending against them.
