Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Life is full of unforeseeable complications and challenges. When dealing with marital and family matters, there are ways to protect your interests in the event you are facing a dissolution of marriage.

A carefully crafted Prenuptial Agreement can protect assets that were acquired prior to the marriage, that are passed down from generation to generation and can protect parties’ who have been married previously and may have children that are now entering into another marriage. Marital settlement agreements can provide an organized and efficient way to handle the dissolution of a marriage, and distribution of the marital and pre-marital assets.

In instances where a married couple is not seeking divorce, but agree that planning for their future, should a dissolution become unavoidable, is in their best interest, postnuptial agreements are an effective way to achieve this goal.

Child Custody

Child custody in Florida is called timesharing. Both parties are entitled to participate in the lives of their children after a divorce and during the process. Determining whether there is a majority residential parent or whether there is equal timesharing is among the most complex aspects in the divorce process. Setting up a methodology for dealing with such factors as distance, work and school schedules as well varying extracurricular activities, makes this a highly challenging process.

In addition, other more serious factors, such as physical, mental, and substance abuse by either parent are contributing factors in the determination of a timesharing schedule. Zisser Law works with an experienced network of psychologists, parenting coordinators, and counselors to help reach a parenting plan that is in the best interest of the child.
