Your attorney will take the time to examine both parties’ incomes and expenses, and work diligently to protect your interests and make sure you get a fair result.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement signed before marriage to determine which who gets what in the event of a divorce. A premarital agreement becomes effective once the parties are married. This type of agreement is important for clients with extensive assets. With a prenuptial agreement, Florida State law will not automatically dictate what happens in the event a couple gets divorced

Adoption

We take a proactive approach to our services, and are dedicated to protecting your child, but also your rights, through every part of the process. We can help facilitate all forms of adoption including stepparent adoptions, international adoptions, relative or grandparent adoptions, and domestic adoptions.

Minor Guardianships

For some individuals or families, pursuing guardianship is an alternative to adoption. Guardianship allows an adult to care and make decision regarding a child’s welfare. This may be an appropriate option if a parent becomes ill, is incapacitated or leaves the home. Guardianship of a minor can be limited to a specific amount of time, and unlike an adoption, a parent can appoint an individual to make legal decisions for their child without losing their parental rights.

Elder Guardianships

Unless a court determines otherwise, an adult is assumed to be capable of making his or her own decisions. If an individual is unable to make important decisions due to a mental disability or medical condition, a legal guardian will be appointed to help take care of their affairs. A legal guardian can make financial, legal, and healthcare decisions for the ward. We will work with you or your relative to ensure their well being and act in their best interests.

Juvenile Matters

If your child or someone close to you is charged with a juvenile crime, it is crucial to work with an attorney experienced in juvenile defense. Due to their age, children are some of the most vulnerable defendants. Many juveniles who end up in the justice system are victims of abuse and are disproportionately minorities who are charged with harsher sentences in adjudication and delinquencies.
