Are you sure your prenuptial agreement is valid?

On your wedding day in Florida, you may have felt excited and a bit nervous as you took the first steps in a new relationship that you were hoping would last your lifetime. Perhaps, you also felt quite confident that you had secured your assets and identified separate ownership of your business or savings account funds by signing a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot.

Who gets the ornaments? Understanding equitable distribution

If it looks like a breakup with your spouse is on the horizon, you will likely start to think of how to separate your life from your spouse and move on.

Along with the emotional stress that can accompany such a difficult decision, the financial side of divorce can be intimidating and complex, especially for the wealthy.

How to separate chaff from wheat when it comes to attorneys

If you're facing a situation that prompts you to seek legal assistance in Florida, chances are the topic is of some paramount importance in your personal or professional life -- or both. When considering your options, you no doubt know there will be expenses involved if you hire an attorney. Just as when you purchase a car, a new TV or your dream house, you want to get the most for your money, so it's logical you'd want to find a lawyer whose services best align with your particular needs and goals.

There are many divorce lawyers in Florida: How to choose the best

No two marriages are the same. Most Florida couples wed assuming their unions will last their lifetimes. Studies show, however, many will end in divorce. The decision to divorce often leads to complicated challenges regarding issues including, but not limited to, child custody, finances, business and estate planning.
