The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one. The process of dissolving the marriage can be complicated — especially in contested cases — and emotional. If you are heading for divorce, our Orlando divorce lawyer can help streamline an otherwise complex process. We can ensure your case meets Florida’s legal parameters, ensure your preferences are observed, and fight for a fair and appropriate resolution.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we take care of the legal details so you can concentrate on the changing dynamics of your family. We will help you sort out living arrangements for yourself and your children. We also help you make sense of financial arrangements involving child and spousal support and property division. Our representation goal is to help you emerge as unscathed as possible and get a peaceful and amicable new start.
You Do Not Have to Navigate Florida Divorce Law on Your Own
Divorce law in Florida is multifaceted and its intricacies can be hard to understand on your own. Since your marriage and divorce are unlike any other, it can also be difficult to understand the parameters of your case. Our family law lawyer serving Orlando can help. We will listen to your story with compassion and empathy.
We will also identify your grounds for divorce. In Florida, there are only two — the marriage is irretrievably broken or there are irreconcilable differences. In some cases, you can request a divorce based on the mental incapacity of your spouse. Our divorce attorney will help you choose the option that best fits your circumstances.
Simplified Divorce Cases
If you and your spouse both want to end your marriage, you can file for divorce together. Our Orlando divorce lawyer will review the details of your case for a simplified dissolution of your marriage.
According to the Florida Courts, you and your spouse can petition together for a simplified dissolution of marriage if:
- Both spouses want the divorce.
- You do not share minor children.
- You do not share dependent children.
- The spouse is not currently pregnant.
- You agree on how to divide assets.
- Spousal support is not requested.
Both spouses must agree to waive a trial or appeal and sign all required paperwork in the county clerk’s office following a divorce hearing.
Even with a simplified divorce, you should consider hiring a lawyer to protect your interests. At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we help you understand the legal nuances and complications that might arise. We also help you effectively navigate them so you can get on with your new life.
Traditional Divorce Cases
If both spouses cannot agree to the conditions and guidelines of a simplified divorce action, one of you will need to file for divorce against the other. This is called a traditional or regular divorce. If you file for divorce the traditional way, we will help you identify grounds, have your spouse appropriately served, and delve into the legal process.

Contested Versus Uncontested Divorces in Orlando
A traditional divorce can be contested by the other party. If yours is, our divorce attorney can help you understand and work through the contested issues. Every divorce case is different and unique. Some commonly contested issues in divorce cases include:
- Division of marital property
- Division of marital assets
- Resolution of marital debt
- Resolving alimony issues
- Deciding on child custody
- Resolving child support
Reaching an agreement on these issues can involve mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution. If mediation does not resolve these issues, your case may have to go through the rigors of divorce court.
You will not have to go through the process on your own. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse cannot reach an agreement, the judge will make these important decisions for you. Whenever possible, we will help you work out the details of your divorce and each contested issue.
