Family Law & Divorce

Fort Myers Divorce & Family Law Attorney

No one should go through a divorce without the advice of an excellent, experienced lawyer.


It’s not an easy decision to make. But once you’ve made the decision you need a compassionate, experienced and tenacious divorce attorney fighting for you. At Peter M. Dennis P.A., Peter is prepared to guide you through the process, fight for you, and spend the time to understand your unique situation and needs.

There are several different processes open to couples in the Fort Myers area who are contemplating getting a divorce. Couples who meet certain qualifications (briefly: no children and no one is seeking Alimony) can choose to take advantage of Florida’s Simplified Dissolution of Marriage process, also known as a Simple Divorce. Other couples may not be able to qualify for a Simple Divorce, may still be able to get an Uncontested Divorce, provided they can agree on some or all of the major issues involved in their divorce. Other couples may have no choice but to get a Contested Divorce which is generally more time consuming and costly than the other two types of divorce.

Your Fort Myers Divorce Attorney will meet with you and help you discuss which of these divorce options is best for you.

Child Custody

In a divorce proceeding, one of the hardest issues to deal with is the custody of any minor children or dependents. Peter is familiar with the approach Fort Myers courts take when handling Child Custody cases. Peter approaches Child Custody matters with understanding and compassion, born from his own experience as a dedicated father. Let Peter put his knowledge to fight on your behalf for the best interests of your child.
