Can I get a contingency basis divorce attorney in Florida?

Under 4-1.5 (3) (A) of the rules and regulations of the Florida Bar, when dealing with a family law matter, an attorney cannot collect payment which is contingent upon finalizing a divorce or the amount of child support, alimony, or marital property awarded. The Florida Bar finds this practice to be unethical and a hindrance toward possible reconciliation. However, the Florida Bar’s note on this regulation states does not apply to any contract for a contingent fee for matters involving “the recovery of post-judgment balances due under support, alimony, or other financial orders.”
