Any divorce – mediated, collaborative, or contested – will involve difficult choices that will affect every aspect of your life. These decisions are even more challenging when children are involved.

No case is too complex for our divorce attorneys in Tampa. Own a business and want to make sure it is protected from your spouse during a divorce?

No matter the circumstances surrounding your divorce, we commit ourselves to every case and get serious results.
What to Expect at Your Divorce Consultation
If you are considering divorce, an initial consultation with our firm could provide you with vital information about the process ahead. We can go over the divorce process as it applies to your unique situation, ensuring you are aware of your rights and have a thorough understanding of the court process. If we accomplish that, your case will run as smoothly as possible.
Even if you and your spouse decide not to divorce at this time, the team at Robert Sparks Attorneys can provide you and your spouse with a plan for the future and helpful guidelines on how to avoid conflict in the future if, later on, the marriage doesn't work out.
Discussing Case-Specific Aspects of Your Divorce
Just as no two families are identical, no two divorces are the same. You and your spouse might have questions that apply specifically to your unique situation. During your divorce consultation, your attorney will discuss any and all case-specific issues, including relocation, modification of previous divorce orders, division of specific assets and more.
Other important factors you may wish to discuss include:
- Timelines and procedures for your divorce
- The jurisdictional aspect of your Florida divorce
- Child and family issues, such as custody and support
- How your assets and debts are likely to be distributed
- Attorney's fees (one spouse can pay for the other's)
- Whether or not alimony would be appropriate
With highly experienced divorce lawyers on the team, Robert Sparks Attorneys is here to provide vital and necessary information that you can use and apply to make your divorce less stressful and complicated. Knowledge is very important, and it is paramount that you educate yourself so that you can make informed decisions and take action when necessary.
Can I Get a Second Opinon On a Current Divorce?
Our firm is always happy to provide second opinions to individuals who may already have retained a divorce lawyer, but are unsure if they are getting the best deal. It is in your best interests to ensure that every aspect of your divorce is handled appropriately.
Our team at Robert Sparks Attorneys can give you a second opinion consultation if you have any type of question or concern about your divorce, including if:
- You are filing for divorce pro se (doing it yourself)

A: The date of filing is important because it will act as the final snap shot of the finances of the marriage. In analyzing equitable distribution and identifying and valuing all the assets and liabilities of the marriage, the time frame that the Court will ultimately look at is the time between the date of the marriage and the date of the filing for divorce. All assets and liabilities accumulated by the parties during that period are subject to the equitable distribution process of a Florida divorce.
