Protecting Men’s Rights During Divorce in Orlando
Family Law for Men
Divorce is difficult for anyone. However, the issues faced by fathers can be especially daunting. You face the prospect of spending less time with your children, even if you have a 50-50 split of child custody (known as parenting time in Florida). You may be dealing with financial concerns over child support, alimony, and marital property division. You may feel separated not only from your spouse, but also from your family, your church, your neighborhood and your friends. The legal process may make you feel like you have lost all control.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce in Orlando
There are many who assume that the primary difference between a contested and uncontested divorce is proving fault for the dissolution of the marriage. This is a misconception, however, since Florida is a no-fault divorce state. That means spouses are not required to prove the marriage should end based on some type of wrongdoing, but rather can simply assert that there are irreconcilable differences. Regardless of whether or not your spouse wants a divorce, you may still proceed with filing for one if that is your desire.
When we talk about uncontested vs. contested divorce in Florida, we are referring to whether the spouses can agree to the terms of their divorce.
This includes matters related to:
If you and your spouse can work out an agreement on these issues, your divorce is considered “uncontested.” However, if there is even one issue that you cannot agree on, the divorce becomes “contested,” and you will need to take the matter before a judge who will decide for you.
A Partner You Can Count On
Regardless of whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, you need an experienced fathers' rights attorney to protect your interests. As your legal ally, adviser, and advocate, attorney Mikaela Nix can help you protect your assets, preserve your relationships with your children, and survive the process with your life and dignity intact.
Division of Marital Property
Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that marital assets are divided equitably. However, "equitable" does not necessarily mean 50-50. Nor does it necessarily mean fair. Your spouse can claim a right to property that you considered yours and yours alone.
As your lawyer, Ms. Nix can protect your financial interests when dealing with issues such as:
- Enforcement of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements
- Division of businesses, professional practices, and other complex situations
- High net worth divorce
- Division of marital debts
- Division of 401(k) accounts, pensions and other retirement assets
As an entrepreneur and a professional with her own law practice, Attorney Mikaela Nix is qualified to understand your business and financial interests in a divorce.
