Contested Divorce
A contested divorce is a more complicated form of divorce in which both spouses are unable to come to a joint agreement with one another about the fundamental issues concerning the actual divorce. The divorce must then be handled in court and each party is allowed to hire an experienced divorce lawyer to represent their side of the case. By speaking with a representative at Gautier & Hasty, you can begin to feel more at ease in knowing that you have dedicated legal counsel that is committed to getting you the results you need - the results you deserve.

Uncontested Divorce
When both spouses can come to a mutual divorce agreement, this is known as an uncontested divorce. This is much simpler form that does not involve the assistance of the court. By having an attorney on your side, you and your spouse can end your marriage with dignity, mutual respect and ease while still securing the assets and rights that you deserve.

Child Custody & Support
Child custody and support are often the most heated topics that are brought up within a divorce agreement. Child custody is identified as parental responsibility in which the parents of the child are responsible for figuring out where the child will live and how important decisions will be made. Child support is the amount of money that one parent must provide the other. This money is used to support the child and ensures that they have a steady lifestyle. Our main goal is to protect the well-being and best interests of the child while making sure that each parent gets the amount of custody and support that they deserve.

Division of Assets
Dividing the marital property during a divorce can be a very time-consuming and frustrating process. This is especially true for assets that were jointly acquired during the time of the marriage. At Gautier & Hasty, we are dedicated to guiding our clients through the procedure and helping them get the fair share of assets that they are entitled. With fair knowledge of the state's equitable distribution laws and a determination to see our client's succeed, we seek to see the assets fairly divided.

Alimony is an allotted amount of money that one spouse is responsible for providing to the other in the event of a divorce. Whether you are the one responsible for providing the financial support or the one who is receiving it, learn about the different types of alimony by speaking with a Miami divorce lawyer.

Domestic Violence
When physical or emotional abuse occurs within a relationship, this is known as domestic violence. If you or someone you love is a victim of domestic violence, now is the time to learn more about your options and getting the protection and help that is deserved!

Adopting a child is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, it can be a very intense and costly legal process. Our goal is to provide you with exceptional counsel you need to undergo the adoption process, whether you are the adopting parent or giving up a child for adoption.

Prenuptial Agreements
Divorce can be an unfortunate end result to some marriages. By creating a prenuptial agreement, you and your spouse are simply indicating what belongs to whom if divorce were to happen. This can make the process a lot smoother and lot easier on you and your spouse. Our legal team can help you and your partner understand the benefits involved and, if a prenuptial agreement is something that you both agree upon, we can help get you started with drafting one that is in both of your best interests.
