Sarasota and Bradenton Divorce Lawyers

The decision to seek a dissolution of marriage can be a difficult and complex decision for a married couple to make. There is little doubt that the trauma of divorce can shake the foundations upon which a life has been based, and can deeply impact the emotional wellbeing of both parties as well as children of the marriage. There are many issues that arise in divorce including, among others:

  • The division of assets and debts
  • Division of tax liabilities
  • Disposition of real and personal property
  • Child custody and support
  • Spousal support (Alimony)
  • Ongoing professional and business operations and ownership
  • Tax liability issues
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Pre-Marital Agreements (“Pre-Nups”)
  • Paternity Matters


As dissolution of marriage is difficult and emotional, these decisions need to be made in a calm and rational fashion. An individual should receive considered advice in determining how to proceed when a divorce is inevitable from a source that can be relied upon to work to protect your interests. At Cole & Cole Law, P.A., our attorneys are available to assist you with these difficult legal matters. The decision to divorce, how to divide the various assets and handle the responsibilities arising from that decision need to be reviewed and arrived at with an objective viewpoint, and hopefully brought to a successful conclusion through negotiation of a marital settlement agreement, rather than discord and litigation. You need an attorney who is capable in trial to provide help in protecting your rights, if an agreement cannot be reached.

We are available to assist you in deciding what is best for you in dissolving a marriage as well as to assist in trying to work to an agreement with your spouse concerning these matters. We will advise you on the decisions needed concerning any alimony to be paid, child support and custody, division of marital assets and the handling of the myriad problems that arise during this most stressful period of a life. In order to cross these troubled waters it is always best to have a competent attorney to represent you and to assist you in making these life altering decisions.

At Cole & Cole Law, P.A. we are here to assist you in mediating a settlement agreement, if possible, or representing your interests through litigation, if necessary. As you consider divorce, we suggest that you have a consultation with one of our attorneys to address the many issues that may arise and determine what, if any, steps you need to take to protect yourself prior to a final decision being made. We can also help with premarital agreements to divide your assets fairly at the time of dissolution which can be quite beneficial to professionals, seniors and to others so that their assets and their estate plans are not ruined by divorce.
