Jacksonville Divorce Lawyer


Florida Marital SeparationAttorney

Divorce combines complex litigation with highly emotional issues. At the Law Office of Douglas A. Oberdorfer, P.A. in Jacksonville, Florida, I encourage my clients to make rational and educated decisions, and I can assist you with filing divorce papers.

The Process of Mediation

In handling divorce cases, especially those that involve minor children, I believe in the process of mediation. A cooperative environment can resolve issues more effectively than a contentious courtroom setting. A divorce may end a marriage, but it cannot break the bond you have with your ex-spouse when you have children. Children should always be a primary concern when making decisions during the divorce process. Bitter support and custody disputes do nothing to foster future positive relationships between you and your ex-spouse.

Making Educated Decisions

During our initial meeting, I will gather the necessary information and let you know what to expect about the process, depending upon whether your divorce is contested or uncontested. There are ramifications related to finances, your home, and the equitable distribution of marital assets that you need to be aware of before we proceed. I want to ensure that you understand everything about the process, and I strive to keep you informed about every step along the way. At the Law Office of Douglas A. Oberdorfer, P.A., I will encourage mediation as a way to resolve your divorce, but I will not shy away from litigation if that is the only way to secure a favorable outcome for you.

If your objective is to make educated decisions in the best interest of your children, you need a divorce attorney who shares that philosophy. I always strive to come to a resolution that serves the best interest of the children. Please contact me for more information or to schedule an appointment.
