Police and Fire
(Public Sector) Divorce

Divorce Attorney Tampa Fl

In a (Public Sector) Police and Fire Divorce, Firefighters and Police Officers have unique benefit and pension plans that must be considered carefully. Typically these benefits have to be dealt with in a special manner due to factors that can complicate the division of assets and benefits. Some of these factors may be the agency you work for or if the pension system you are vested in recognizes a Qualified Domestic Relations Order or some other variant. Another consideration is if you also are subject to the terms of a contract. These concerns and others need to be factored in when a public sector employee is going through a divorce.

We have the experience and knowledge with all of these situations. Our Firm can help navigate through the common obstacles encountered with
a (Public Sector) Police and Fire Divorce. For public sector workers with many years on the job benefits the division of assets is a critical concern. Items such as pensions, deferred compensation accounts, health insurance, accrued vacation and other compensation are all considered in equitable distribution. This is especially true when employment benefits and retirement accounts may be the only valuable asset left. Some of the specific examples are:

Most cases are resolved out of court even in complex divorces and the parties do not have to go to trial. Trial can be costly, both financially and emotionally, and can be avoided through mediation or conciliatory meetings between the spouses. These processes let you stay in control of the future and the ultimate outcome of the divorce. The alternative, going to trial, places the final decision with the Judge who has little intimate knowledge of your issues and cannot personalize those issues as you or your attorney can. While going to trial is not ideal it is sometimes necessary when the two parties are unwilling to yield to the other. However, it is imperative that your attorney be ready and willing to advocate and litigate if negotiations break down and know when to barter and when to fight.

Stop searching for an attorney you can trust and count on. Amber Boles is your attorney. She is incredibly responsive, always willing to listen to your concerns and has a very caring heart. We were at our last hope in trying to get a two year case resolved. After spending thousands and thousands of dollars with another attorney and getting nowhere, Amber took on our case with such passion that she was able to get more accomplished in 45 days than our old attorney did in two years. She is someone who in my opinion doesn’t see you as a revenue stream, but one who wants justice served for her clients. She studied hard to know our case and spent countless hours getting ready for trial. She represented us so well in court. Amber is inspiring to be around and candidly one of the smartest individuals I have the chance to be around. I highly recommend you hire Amber Boles. She is top notch in our book. An outstanding lawyer.

I hired Amber to assist me with my divorce. My ex-husband is self-employed and was trying to evade alimony and child support payments. Amber was very aggressive in uncovering his income. She left no stone unturned, and did not waste time in moving my case forward. She was extremely knowledgeable about the law and was very familiar with our judge. At trial she presented the evidence and facts in a clear, professional manner. She was very organized, and aggressive. Most of all she really cared about me. She far exceeded my expectations. She was the second attorney I had on my case, and by far the best! Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

Words cannot explain what an amazing human being Amber is. She went above and beyond to help me in a very ugly custody battle. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. When you’re in court cases that have your children’s safety at risk, you want the best. And Amber Boles is the best!

Professional, personable, efficient, informative, and the list goes on. Thank you so much for handling my family’s legal matter quickly and efficiently. We could not have done it without you being there every step of the way. My family and I are very satisfied with your services. You are our “go to” attorney. I highly recommend Amber Boles!

Amber is wonderful! After a two year long, failed custody battle with another attorney, we hired Amber. Amber had the case resolved in about 5 months with mediation and we got everything we wanted! Amber knows family law so well, it made the process easy and comfortable! We highly recommend her!
