PRACTICE LIMITED TO
DIVORCE – FAMILY LAW
Fort Lauderdale Family Lawyer| Fort Lauderdale Family Attorney
The practice of family law best serves its clients when the attorney is located in the County and is most familiar with the court system in which the attorney most often practices.
A starting point is to understand that “divorce law” is substantially State law, not Federal. The law varies from one state to another. There may be differences in residency requirements, grounds for divorce and relief to which the parties are entitled. Florida divorce law differs in many ways from the laws of various states. Our “jurisdiction” has its own approach to the subject of divorce.
In Florida we have an ever changing body of divorce laws. It may even vary, particularly in procedure, from one County to another. This is referred to as “venue.”
