Experienced Divorce Lawyer Protects Clients through the Divorce Process in Palm Beach County
Dedicated Florida family lawyer advocates for your interests
For over 40 years at the Tyson Law Group in West Palm Beach, I have successfully handled divorces, ranging from simple cases to complex, contested matters. Although divorce is often hotly litigated, I firmly believe that it doesn’t have to be that way. Parties can utilize other methods of settling their cases outside of the court system. I have been very successful at using alternative dispute resolution remedies, including arbitration, mediation and collaboration. I provide Palm Beach County clients with efficient legal services targeted at helping achieve their goals while keeping their economic stability in mind.
Accomplished family lawyer skillfully assists clients with distribution of personal property, bank accounts, stocks and other assets
Florida is an equitable distribution state, in which the courts attempt to divide property fairly between the parties. I will first attempt to broker an agreeable settlement with the other party to avoid unnecessary legal fees, stress and hassle. If a settlement isn’t possible, Florida courts will determine how to divide your property. They consider factors such as the contribution of you and your spouse, your economic circumstances and the length of your marriage. I will use my knowledge of Florida laws to advocate for a favorable property division.
Determined advocate fights for your right to spousal support and temporary support
Florida provides spousal support in many circumstances, including temporary support while your divorce case is pending. Spousal support also may be awarded to help you transition from being married to single, to give you a chance to acquire additional training or education, or to provide the same standard of living you enjoyed during a long marriage. I have represented Florida residents in support matters for over 40 years and have a track record of successful outcomes.
Knowledgeable lawyer taps into alternative dispute resolution solutions
I explore options for alternative dispute resolution that save my clients time and money, including such methods as:
- Mediation — This process allows the spouses to work together toward an acceptable settlement. A neutral third-party helps them improve their communication and focus on their interests. I can assist you through this process and help you form a favorable settlement agreement to present to the court for approval.
- Arbitration — Spouses can have an arbitrator instead of a judge make important decisions about their divorce. This process if often much faster than waiting for a judge’s docket to clear. I have served as an arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association, so I know what type of evidence is necessary to secure a favorable outcome.
- Collaboration — In a collaborative divorce, clients can design their own settlement agreement with the guidance of their attorneys. In doing so, they can save money for the family and feel confident that they can live with a settlement that they worked out themselves. I have helped several clients through this process successfully.
I am a compassionate lawyer who takes advantage of the many benefits these ADR solutions provide.
