Did you ring-in this new year with a wedding proposal? If you said, “Yes,” amidst the promises of a lifetime of togetherness and joyful wedding preparations, now is the time to also think about the true value of a prenuptial agreement, namely, agreeing to mediate before choosing to litigate.
It’s quintessentially unromantic, but apparently a rising trend, to present your soon-to-be spouse with a prenuptial agreement the “just-in-case-this-doesn’t-quite-work-out” agreement.
Settlement agreements should be entered into freely, voluntarily, and only after full disclosure of all pertinent facts. The agreement itself will most likely contain representations that full disclosure was made.
Most divorce cases do not end with a trial by the judge, but by agreement. The agreement establishes the rights and obligations of the parties. When one party fails to live up to their obligations, it becomes necessary to enforce the agreement.
Nothing is more important than your children. When faced with a divorce or paternity lawsuit, often the most difficult issues involve the future parenting arrangement.
A spouse who does not make timely support payments can have his or her wages garnished through the Florida Child Support Enforcement Department. The court orders that alimony be automatically taken from the paying spouse's paycheck. The court can also order that the paying spouse give the alimony payments to the Support Enforcement Department, which will give the money to the receiving spouse. The department acts as a third party which manages the collection and distribution of support payments on a statewide basis. If the paying spouse of child support or alimony fails to make timely and sufficient payments, the court can suspend the paying spouse's driver's license.
