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.
All Florida divorcing spouses who have children must complete a Parent Education and Family Stabilization class before a divorce will be granted by the court. This parenting class is mandatory because it helps to minimize the emotional trauma of the divorce on the children. Each parent must independently complete the course before the divorce enters the court. They must provide the court with a certificate of completion to prove the obligation has been met.
