How do we help?

We can draft contracts and provide you with independent legal advice. We will help you understand your rights and obligations, and customize your agreement to work for you. The law says what will happen if you separate, but you might not like it, or might want more certainty. That’s where a contract comes in.

Why Would I want a Prenup?

They allow you to plan for your future, and helps protect you and your partner from potential risk. They are an integral part of any financial plan.

• Protect your assets – A home, your business, a pension or other significant assets

• Protect your interest in your home – You might be investing more into the purchase of a jointly held home than your spouse. Without an agreement, you may not be entitled to any credit for your larger investment.

• Protect your estate plan – This is especially important if you are getting re-married and you have obligations to your former spouse or children from a previous relationship.

• Have some certainty if you are not getting married – The laws regarding property division are different when you have lived together than when you are married, and they are evolving. An agreement provides some certainty.

• To protect your income – You may want to include a spousal support waiver so you know that you will not have to pay support, or you might want one spouse to be provided for.

Domestic Violence 

Whether you or someone under your care such as children, are survivors of domestic violence, or you have been falsely accused of committing domestic violence, it is extremely important you understand what happens in a Domestic Violence hearing and what a judge may be looking for to either enter a Final Injunction Against Domestic Violence or a dismissing one.

Domestic Violence Injunctions (commonly called Restraining Orders), allow a person to seek protection by filing a sworn petition that they are a survivor of domestic violence and/or reasonably believe they are in danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence.

Florida judges consider the following factors when deciding whether or not to enter a Domestic Violence Injunction/Florida Restraining Order:

(1). The history between the parties, including threats, harassment, stalking, and physical abuse.

(2). Whether the accused has attempted to harm the person seeking the injunction, or their family members, or other people who are close to the person seeking the injunction.

(3). Whether the accused has threatened to conceal, kidnap, or harm the petitioner's child or children.

(4). Whether the accused has intentionally killed or injured a family pet.

(5). Whether the accused has used of threatened to use weapons, such as guns, knives, etc., against the petitioner.

(6). Whether the accused has physically restrained the petitioner from leaving the home or contacting the police.

(7). Whether the accused has a criminal history involving violence or the threat of violence.

(8). The existence of a verifiable order of protection previously issued from another jurisdiction.

(9). Whether the accused has destroyed the petitioner's personal property such as cell phone, clothing, or other items.

(10). Whether the accused engaged in any other conduct or behavior that has led the petitioner to believe they are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence.


Florida Law does not require a domestic violence survivor to retain an attorney to assist with the injunction/restraining order process. Likewise, Florida Law does not require a respondent/person being accused of committing domestic violence to have an attorney. However, make no mistake, there is a lot at stake in Florida Injunction proceedings, whether you are a survivor or being falsely accused of committing domestic violence, it is our opinion that you should definitely have the help of an attorney who has experience and practices in Florida Domestic Violence cases.
