The Denmon Pearlman Difference
We believe that the right divorce process makes all the difference. Sure some cases require court intervention at the beginning. Think emergency matters, such as domestic violence, an impaired parent, or a spouse putting a financial stranglehold on another. And we have a proactive litigation process specific for these cases.
But most divorce cases are transnational. It’s about untangling financial matters. Setting people on a path to economic security and flexibility as they enter new lives. Minimizing conflict between parents when doing so so that co-parenting remains high divorce fees and costs remain manageable. And we have a collaborative approach away from the Courtroom specific for these divorce cases.
Our divorce team handles everything from simplified divorce to high real estate and complex financial divorce.
Divorce: The heart of our Pinellas practice is divorce. Also called a dissolution of marriage, this process involves terminating a marriage but also resolving child and financial issues for the family afterward.
Child Custody: Pinellas County courts are known for being conservative in the handling of custody cases. A Judge in Pinellas is likely to define a parent (often the mother) as a majority parent and awarding unequal timesharing.
High Conflict Divorce: High-conflict divorce has the potential to devastate families, especially children. We need to move high conflict cases in a direction that minimizes the impact on the children after the divorce is complete.
Small Business: Small business divorce has large issues to resolve. These include appropriate determination of income of the business owner, valuation of the business, and how to handle a business with two or more owners after a divorce is finalized.
Alimony: In the Florida courthouses, spousal support is called alimony. Alimony is a monthly transfer of money from a spouse with more income to a spouse with less income for a set period of time after a divorce is finalized.
Military: Many military members from MacDill make life over the Gandy or Howard Franklin Bridge in Pinellas County. We help resolve complex military issues including pension division, SBP, and child support determination.
