Family law cases involve the things that matter most in life.

If you have just decided to end your marriage, then you may have heard nothing but horror stories about divorce. From friends to work colleagues, it seems everyone has an opinion on the process and what to expect.
A divorce will obviously change your life, but there is no reason why it has to destroy everything you have worked for – including how you interact with your spouse.

At the same time, you don’t want to compromise your interest in the assets you share with your spouse.

Although we understand this may be one of the most difficult times of your life, and that is why we offer solutions that can eliminate strife, cost, and conflict. Through uncontested and collaborative divorce, we help clients work through the process fairly and efficiently. Our skilled Tampa divorce attorney also assists clients and their families with high-asset matters and contested cases.
Many individuals believe that prenuptial agreements are only for wealthy couples. The truth is that prenuptial or premarital agreements serve a variety of purposes. Certainly, high net worth couples can benefit from these arrangements, but so can those whose marriage involves a closely held business or professional practice. Further, if there are expected inheritances or gifts from family, these agreements can be used to protect these funds as well. Similarly, it is not uncommon for many people to enter into second marriages today. In such cases, a prenuptial agreement can help to protect the property rights of children from a prior marriage as well as the assets you are bringing.
It is important to note that Florida is an equitable distribution state when it comes to dividing marital property. By presumption, everything that is determined to be marital would be split equally. If there are assets that are non-marital, it is up to the party that believes them to be non-marital to provide proof. By having a prenuptial agreement in place, a couple has more control over whether assets are considered marital or non-marital, as well as deciding upon dividing their property, rather than being bound by a judge’s decision.
Further, a prenuptial agreement is, realistically, the only way to prevent or limit issues of alimony or spousal support in a dissolution of marriage case. For many couple contemplating marriage, having a discussion and decision in the beginning of the marriage can provide security for moving forward with the marital relationship by resolving this issue in advance of marriage.
