We Represent You at Every Stage of the Marriage Dissolution Process
Our Tampa divorce lawyers can help you with every aspect of your divorce. Obtaining a dissolution of marriage under Florida no-fault grounds for divorce may not itself be very difficult, but there are a number of issues related to the divorce that must be carefully considered and dealt with professionally. Even though you may want the divorce to be finalized as quickly and simply as possible, if you do not take the proper steps to protect the rights of you and your children, you could find yourself paying for bad decisions for years to come.
Our law firm makse sure you understand all aspects of the divorce and represent your interests in all related matters, including child custody, child support, alimony and the division of property. In all of these areas, if you and your spouse cannot agree on how the matter should be handled, the decision is left for the judge to make following a hearing. Attorney Dan Bubley is an experienced Tampa family lawyer and civil litigator who can represent your vital interests in court and make sure your voice is heard in any support award, property distribution or timesharing plan.
Tampa Prenuptial & Premarital Agreement Lawyers
Any couple can benefit from a prenuptial or premarital agreement. With a prenuptial agreement, a marrying couple can decide in advance important issues such as the division of property or the payment of alimony in the event of a later separation or divorce. When a couple enters into marriage with vastly different wealth or assets, the prenup helps both partners feel secure in knowing they will not be taken advantage of if the relationship later deteriorates. Spouses with children from a former marriage can also feel safe that the inheritance for their children will be protected in the event of a divorce. Finally, a prenuptial agreement is a private contract between two parties, and the terms of that agreement can be kept private. The issues decided in a divorce, on the other hand, are a matter of public record that can be seen by anyone.
A prenuptial agreement can provide for a surviving spouse in the event of death and not just divorce. This is just one example of how family law and estate planning can interact, and why it is so beneficial to have attorneys experienced in both areas of law help you draft legal documents with future consequences.
We are Here Long after the Divorce for Post-Judgment Modification and Enforcement
Even after the issuance of a final divorce decree, circumstances may change that require a change in court orders for custody, visitation or support. Making such a change usually requires going back to court and justifying your request in a motion or hearing. As a law firm here for the life of our clients, our lawyers are here to help with request or challenges to post-judgment modifications, as well as help in proceedings for enforcement of custody or support orders.
