Frequently Asked Questions

Florida does not recognize legal separation. Therefore, you should be aware that until you file for divorce, all of the marital responsibilities and liabilities are in full effect. Unless you have made the proper alternate arrangements, you and your spouse can still make life decisions over one another, and continue to have financial liability and an interest in financial gain over each other’s assets and liabilities.
The amount of child support to be paid is determined by the Florida Child Support guideline worksheet. The formula that is used takes into consideration how many children are involved, whether one parent is already paying child support for another child, the number of overnights each parent will have with the children, child care cost, medical insurance, and the income of each parent.
Absolutely NOT. If there are no concerns about the safety of the child, both parents are entitled to spend time with the child, even if one parent is not paying child support.
No. Florida does not recognize common law marriage. As such, a Family judge will not have any authority to make decisions over any financial responsibility with the exception of child support, if the couple has a child.
Basically, this is how you dictate how your assets will be administered and how your loved ones and what is most important to you, will be taken care of when you die. In addition, it also includes planning for the possibility of your incapacity. This is a way for you to keep control over your affairs and give you and your family peace of mind should an emergency happen.
It is a court process that identifies the assets of a deceased person in order to pay the decedent’s debts and distribute the remaining assets to his or her beneficiaries.
There are many ways to avoid Probate. That is why it is important that you meet with an attorney in our office to determine if there is a way for you to do so.

The most basic documents prepared in Estate planning are:

  1. Will – This is the document that decides who gets your property when you die and who will in charge of making sure that your decisions are exercised.
  2. Durable Power of Attorney – This document allows a person of your choosing to act as your agent and perform duties, such as signing documents, on your behalf.
  3. Living Will – This allows the person you assign and your physicians to terminate artificial machines that are extending your life in a permanent comatose or vegetative state with no chance of recovery.
  4. Durable Health Care Power of Attorney – This allows you to appoint someone to make medical decisions for you in the event you are incapacitated.
