We Keep Things Civil In Family Law Cases

The Law Office of David J. Kurland in Largo, Florida, can help keep acrimony in a family law case from making a bad situation worse. We'll work with you to keep things civil when negotiating child support, avoid Court Intervention, and keep any children in the marriage out of the fight. If you have additional questions or wish to discuss a case in more detail, feel free to schedule a consult.

Dissolution Of Marriage (Divorce)

Since Florida is a no-fault state, you don't need grounds for a divorce. Only one spouse needs to affirm that the marriage is irretrievably broken, meaning that it no longer works and the spouse doesn't want to try to make it work. While this may seem straightforward, the application of law and other concepts in court can become complex. We help you navigate Florida law and any necessary negotiations with your spouse. During a divorce case couples must sort out issues such as:

• Use, Possession, Or Ownership Of the Marital Home
• Division Of the Marital Assets and Liabilities
• Child Support for the Children
• Child Custody Of the Children
• Alimony
• Attorney's Fees


Shared parental responsibility is recognized in Florida. We'll help you establish timesharing of these rights between yourself and a former spouse. Usually one parent is designated primary residential parent, and is the one the children live with, and the other is designated the secondary residential parent, with whom the children visit.

Child Support and the Marital Home

A parent's share of child support depends on how much he or she contributed to the family's total income. It's our job to ensure that you are well-represented in child support cases. We'll ensure the proper support based on both parents income. However, a non-custodial parent earning 25% more money than the custodial parent may pay an increased percentage in child support. Use of the marital home usually follows the children, so it often goes to the custodial parent.
