Family Law

Divorce and Family Law

We are a full-service divorce and family law firm that takes pride in providing professional services to individuals and families with respect to all their legal needs. We always strive to protect your rights with professional excellence.

Your West Palm Beach family lawyer, Jessica Mishali, has experience in representing individuals with respect to divorce, child custody litigation, the division of marital property, alimony and child support. We are also highly experienced in enforcing final judgments and orders and in modifying alimony child support and custody. We understand that the nature of these proceedings are filled with frustration and enormous financial and emotional challenges. We are careful to structure our approach to the needs of each client and will never use a “cookie cutter” approach.

We are highly experienced and effective negotiators and always attempt to mediate our cases whenever possible. However, if a case cannot be settled, we are also highly experienced litigators and have extensive trial experience.

Florida law requires the equitable division of marital property and marital debts in a dissolution of marriage action (divorce). Under the concept of equitable distribution, title to the property no longer matters. Marital property means that everything you acquire during the marriage, other than gifts or inheritance, is marital property. Likewise, debts or liabilities acquired during the marriage by either spouse are considered marital debts. The starting point, for the court, is that marital assets and marital debts are split equally. There are some limited exceptions whereby the court can make an unequal distribution. Assets brought into the marriage are non-marital and can usually be kept as separate property upon divorce.

Child custody is an extremely important issue to our family law attorneys located in West Palm Beach. We are careful to handle families with children with compassion and understanding. We understand that this is one of the most difficult and important issues in a divorce case. In recent years the Florida legislature has endeavored to limit “custody” battles. The word custody has been removed from the law and in most cases the court awards shared parental responsibility to the parties. This refers to the sharing by both parties in the important decisions about the children after the divorce. The law also has eliminated the terms, primary residential or custodial parent. The court now must decide the amount of timesharing for each party with no presumption of equal timesharing. The court will determine all matters relating to parenting and timesharing in accordance with the best interests of the child.
