Divorce Is Not About Your Past, It's About Your Future

When a marriage ends, it is critical to focus on both your short-term and long-term interests, but the emotional aspects of divorce can make it difficult to think about next week, much less next year. That's why it is critical to enlist the services of a knowledgeable divorce attorney who will provide sound guidance, help you navigate the important decisions that must be made, and put you in the best possible position to move forward with your life.

At the law office of Barry P. Burnette, PA, in Tavares, we will work closely with you from the initial consultation through the resolution of your case. We will help you establish and prioritize your objectives, and then develop a legal strategy to achieve those goals.

It may be possible to resolve some issues efficiently and without the need to litigate. Other disputes may not be resolved amicably and must be settled in court. Both situations may occur within the same divorce. We are experienced at negotiation, mediation and litigation. We are prepared to use the strategies that produce the most favorable outcome for you.

A Record Of Success In Challenging Cases

Attorney Burnette has practiced law in Central Florida for more than 15 years. Most of his career has been focused on family law. He has established a reputation as a knowledgeable attorney who is assertive when necessary and willing to take on tough cases that other lawyers turn away.

Other attorneys know we advocate aggressively for our clients. But we are aggressive for the right reasons. There are times when a strong stance is warranted, whether it is to protect your rights as a parent, modify or terminate alimony, or address any other dispute.

Protecting Your Rights In All Aspects Of Divorce

We represent clients in the full spectrum of family law matters, including:

  • Division of assets and debt — All marital property must be divided equitably in divorce. But "equitable" is open to interpretation. Sometimes, it's not clear what is marital property and what property is separately owned. The lawyer you select will have a significant impact on how property division issues are resolved.
  • Division of complex assets — If you have accumulated substantial assets during your marriage, or if one or both parties brought substantial assets into the marriage, it is important to protect your long-term financial interests.
  • Spousal support — Florida courts have great discretion when determining the amount and the duration of alimony. Here again, the lawyer you work with will likely impact the outcome in this area.
