Florida Family Law Attorney With Three Decades of Experience
Each divorce is different. Sometimes divorces can be resolved quickly with little disagreement. Other times, aggressive representation is needed to protect your interests in court. At the Fort Lauderdale law offices of Andrew D. Washor, P.A., we tailor our approach to meet your needs:
- Complex/high-asset divorce: When complex assets, like family-owned businesses or investments, are involved in a divorce, it is critical to work with an attorney who has the resources to effectively protect your interests. We partner with highly-regarded certified public accountants (CPAs) and experts on hidden assets when handling complex divorce matters.
- Collaborative divorce: Attorney Andrew Washor uses collaborative divorce principles to help couples settle divorce issues without fighting. In collaborative divorces, spouses and their attorneys work together to make decisions, sometimes with the assistance of child psychologists or financial specialists, depending on the issues involved.
- Pro Se Mediation: Working through a divorce agreement yourself is often the best way to cut costs and reduce the impact on the children involved. Nancy and Andrew Washor are certified family mediators by the Supreme Court of Florida. Working as a team, we mediate issues and prepare the paperwork for couples wishing to represent themselves.
Regardless of which method you may choose, we can help you resolve all issues associated with your divorce. These may include determination of child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support and division of asset and debts.
We can also help clients change their names back from their married names to maiden names. A name change is free if done at the time of divorce, but could costs hundreds in court costs and attorneys fees if left until later.
Mediation and Divorce
In a divorce, couples may try negotiating a settlement through their attorneys. If that fails, mediation is required in Florida before most divorces can be granted. If mediation fails, couples can take a more adversarial approach through the family court system. We can accommodate each approach and run Compassionate Mediation, Inc., helping couples mediate the issues in their divorces.
Our Convenient Broward County Location
Our law office is directly across the street from the Broward County Courthouse. When clients must attend hearings at the courthouse, we meet them across the street at our office and go to court with them. That way, they can trust that their lawyer is by their side the entire time.
Our location also helps save our clients money. Unlike other lawyers who charge their clients for travel time as they drive to and from the courthouse, we have no need to charge these fees. The walk across the street only takes a few minutes of time.
