Leon, Wakulla, Gadsden and Jefferson County Divorce Lawyer
I am a dedicated Tallahassee family law lawyer with nearly 40 years of experience. I understand the emotional and financial hardships associated with divorce and other family law issues. Without proper guidance through the divorce process, you could face undue obligations or fail to obtain appropriate levels of financial support.
At the Law Office of Eric I will evaluate your situation from every angle and tailor my representation to meet your unique needs while addressing the best interest of the children. I pursue effective and efficient conflict resolutions. I can leverage mediation and negotiation strategies before filing for divorce proceedings if that is in your best interest.
Florida law follows an equitable distribution of assets standard for dividing property in a divorce. This standard typically calls for assets and debts to be split evenly between both parties. Under the law, everything you accumulated during your marriage is subject to property division. Simply having your name on an asset does not mean you will acquire 100 percent of the asset. These can include:
- Retirement accounts
- Bank accounts
When you or your ex-spouse experiences a substantial and significant change of circumstances, you can pursue a post-decree modification. This action enables you to present evidence to the court to support your need to have a prior court order changed. You can obtain modifications for the following situations:
- Child custody
- Child support
Extensive Family Law Representation

- Child support
- Child custody and visitation
- Dissolution of marriage/divorce
- Modifications of past decrees
- Prenuptial and post-marital agreements
