Helping You Understand Your Rights
A divorce is the legal ending of a marriage. Under Florida law, a divorce decree, also known as a dissolution of marriage, is granted by a court and can be based on a number of different reasons, including "irreconcilable differences."

Uncontested Divorce: A DeFuniak Springs Divorce Mediation Lawyer
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which all the details of the end of the marriage are agreed upon outside of court by both spouses. Though they can require compromise and more contact with your spouse, this type of divorce is usually much less stressful and much less expensive.
As a certified family mediator, Dave Thomas has much experience in facilitating uncontested divorces that both sides can agree on.
Contested Divorce: When Litigation Is Involved
A contested divorce involves the decision of a judge, with a court settling the conflict and all issues.
We can represent you in court when a contested divorce is necessary, making sure your interests are advocated for.
