At the Law Offices of Kelley A. Joseph, P.A., we will guide you through the process of filing for divorce and navigating the issues so that you understand what’s happening at every step.

With the multiple complex issues, substantial assets and the potentially volatile emotions involved, it is easy to understand why so many divorce proceedings result in protracted litigation. However, divorce litigation could have a terribly negative impact on your children. It also has the tendency to destroy the working relationships that you will need to maintain with your spouse.
You will have the rest of your life to implement your parenting plan, time sharing, child support and spousal maintenance agreements with your ex-spouse. We know that the tone of the divorce can set the tone for these interactions for decades to come.
“I prepare all of my cases as if they are going to trial; not because I think they will, but because this is the best way to resolve divorce issues outside of trial. By coming to the negotiation table thoroughly prepared, I am able to negotiate more effectively toward resolution with the other side. When a case does need to go forward to litigation, I use my extensive experience to get results. I can help you resolve the issues in your divorce efficiently while making sure your interests are protected.” ∙ Plantation Divorce Attorney Kelley A. Joseph
Many lawyers only take on the simplest legal issues for their clients or take uncontested divorce cases. When divorce issues become more difficult, they hand their clients off to another lawyer when a complicated matter arises.
At the Law Offices of Kelley A. Joseph, P.A., we will see your case through to the end. We have good relationships and experience working with a wide range of experts, including financial experts, psychological experts and vocational rehabilitation experts, so that we can gather the appropriate information to manage even the most difficult family law case.
We have the experience, resources and skill to handle some of the most complicated matters that can arise in your divorce, such as:
Divorce preparation is critical. Once a divorce petition has been filed, joint bank accounts will be frozen. Making sure you have the resources necessary without running afoul of the law will help you financially support yourself during divorce. Other strategic matters may also be necessary, especially in a complex divorce.
Because divorce is an inherently stressful process, we recommend making sure a support network is in place before you initiate proceedings. Even the most well-balanced individuals are likely to be shaken by divorce. This should ideally be a professional, rather than family or friends. A therapist can help you manage your emotions in a safe environment.
It can be difficult to manage your emotions during divorce, but it is important to avoid posting negative things about your spouse during the process. In fact, we advise against posting anything pertaining to your divorce on social media.
Although it is difficult, we encourage people to try and maintain a sense of humor during divorce. This can help you weather the storms of divorce. Remember, this will not last forever.
Finally, it can be tremendously beneficial to practice self-care in the form of meditation or exercise. Both activities are proven to be an excellent way to relieve stress.
