Divorce & Family Law in Sarasota

Going through a divorce can be extremely difficult and emotional, and you may feel a bit overwhelmed when deciding to file for a divorce in Sarasota.  It is crucial that you have an aggressive and compassionate Sarasota family law attorney to advocate and litigate on your behalf  as well as thoroughly explain to you your rights and options during each and every step of a divorce.

The Byrd Law Firm is here to help you make decisions that are right for you and your family.  We understand that a divorce can turn your life upside down, financially and emotionally, as well as the lives of your children.  We are sensitive to the stress and emotional turmoil you are going through.  Whether your divorce will be friendly and uncontested or a hostile courtroom battle, we will help you through this difficult period by providing effective and efficient representation.  We will protect your rights and strive to fully meet your goals.

A divorce is often a complicated and frightening process.  Florida divorce law allows for no-fault divorces wherein neither party has to accept or lay blame.  This often makes divorces simpler and less emotional than it would be in a State that requires you to assign blame to one party over the other.  Your future is at stake so having an experienced attorney is essential.
