Protect Your Interests
- High-Asset Divorce. Clients with a high net worth or extensive assets encounter unique challenges in a divorce. It is essential to deal with all property, business, and tax issues — including securing accurate business valuations and helping you plan financially for life after divorce.
- High-Conflict Divorce. While all Port Orange divorce cases involve some degree of conflict, certain cases fall into the category of “high-conflict” divorce. Our attorneys are experts in handling aggressive spouses, spouses who hide assets or who incur massive debt, and spouses who use the children as pawns. Our expertise in this area allows us to quickly reign in the unruly spouse and recommend other professionals, like forensic accountants, mental health counselors, and parenting coordinators.
- Collaborative Divorce. Our Family Law attorneys are trained in the collaborative process. The collaborative process is unique because the parties work together with a “team” of professionals to resolve their issues and dissolve their marriage amicably.

Divorce In Florida
Florida is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that neither spouse is required to establish blame or wrongdoing on the behavior of the other. Florida divorce rules are different from other states and can vary by county. Although divorce is frequently used, the term used throughout the state of Florida is “dissolution of marriage.”
All that is necessary to seek a divorce is for the marriage to be “permanently fractured”. This exercises the concept that marriage cannot be saved by any means. In Florida, at least one of the parties must have lived in the state for six months previous to filing the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.
This petition sets out the reasons and explains what the applicant’s spouse wishes in terms of division of property, alimony, custody, and child support.
The spouse who presents the request must “notify” the act to the other spouse. Before filing for divorce, the parties are not required to live in separate households.
Child Custody, Parenting Plans, & Timesharing. Protect your rights relating to your children through child custody and visitation (timesharing) negotiations and litigation. At Cobb Cole, we will work with you to craft a parenting plan that uniquely fits your family.
Family Law Appeals. If the Court enters an Order, there is a limited amount of time to file an appeal. Contact an experienced family law attorney as soon as you receive an Order to preserve your appellate remedies.
