Answers from Our Central Florida Divorce Lawyer
At Stepniak & Park, we make sure to provide our clients with high-quality
and informative counsel. This includes giving them the answers they need
to understand their case. Below, we have compiled a list of common questions
that we get at our firm. If your question is not posted below, feel free
to give our office a call. We provide
FREE consultations so you can learn more about your case before committing to our services.
I am thinking of getting a divorce. Do I need a lawyer?
While you do not need to have an attorney to help you through the
divorce, it is recommended because divorce is complex. You want to have a lawyer
guide you through your disputes, disagreements, and to make sure that
you walk away from the divorce with your fair share of assets and property.
We at Stepniak & Park can protect you throughout the process and make
the process as stress free as possible.
How is property divided in a divorce?
property, assets, and marital debt are divided equitably. This does not mean that property division is split in half, but that
it is divided according to what is fair in the eyes of the law.
How will child custody be determined?
Child custody is determined by looking at the best interests of the child, including
arrangements that maintain and foster a healthy relationship with both
parents. Frequent contact between a child and his or her parent is encouraged
because it promotes stability for the child. But there are exceptions,
such as if one parent is not deemed fit for custody. Make sure you have
an attorney with you to fight for your custody rights.
How much does divorce cost?
At Stepniak & Park, your initial consultation is free and we do everything
possible to offer affordable rates. You can find out more about our flexible
