In Florida, a married couple has several options available when they are ready to put a legal end to their union. The simplest and least expensive option is the uncontested divorce. To qualify for this, both parties must agree on every aspect of the settlement agreement.
If the parties do not agree on the terms of the settlement, it is called a contested divorce. In this situation, the attorneys work to broker an agreement. If an agreement is not possible, the case goes before a judge and the court will make the final ruling.
Our family law team will look to foster as amicable a solution as possible so that despite the fact that your marriage has ended, the two of you can part on respectful terms with each party feeling satisfied with the outcome.
If a couple is unmarried when their child is born, and the mother or father wants to officially establish the paternity of the father, Florida provides several ways to do that. We can help unmarried parents resolve disputes concerning paternity that will have an effect on custody, visitation and child support.
Allow us to relieve the stress and complication of the adoption process so that you can focus on preparing for the new addition to your family.

You have the right to feel safe from domestic abuse. We are here for you if your former spouse or close relative becomes a danger to you and your children. There are legal protections, such as a restraining order, available to you that we can help put in place on your behalf. A restraining order, or an injunction for protection, is a civil order issued by the court to protect you from violence or threats of violence. It prohibits the respondent from coming to your home, school or place of employment. It can help determine temporary custody for minor children.
From handling all aspects of your divorce to helping you experience the joy of expanding your family through adoption, at Mara & Mara, we strive to provide compassionate, dependable legal solutions for your family.
