From premarital agreements to alimony appeals in Florida

On behalf of Furr & Cohen, P.A. posted in Family Law on Thursday, October 16, 2014.

Our readers know that we write about child custody topics frequently on our blog. For parents who are divorcing, child custody topics are an important part of the divorce process. That aspect of divorce, however, isn’t the only one that parents have to sort out. They also have to deal with issues such as division of marital property and debts. Alimony and child support might also be concerns.

For anyone who is going through a divorce, having to sort out all of these aspects of the divorce might prove to be a challenge. Laws might change or be updated, which means you have to not only know the current laws, but also know how these changes and updates could affect your case. You might not want to have to handle all that while you are going through the upheaval of a divorce. We understand that and can put our knowledge to work for you.

As equally as important as knowing that you deserve a fair settlement is knowing that there are some aspects of the divorce that you can appeal. Even if years pass after your divorce settlement, you might be able to appeal alimony awards or child support amounts. In those cases, knowing the criteria you must meet to make an appeal can take some stress out of the process.

No matter where you are in your relationship, keeping your interests protected is vital. Prenuptial agreements for those considering marriage, postnuptial agreements when situations change after the marriage, property division during a divorce, child custody and financial support orders for exes or children are all common family law issues that require working knowledge of the laws.
