Settlement Agreements in Florida

Board Certified Marital and Family Law Attorney in Clearwater

Settlement agreements may go by many names - such as postnuptial agreement, marital settlement agreement, and property settlement agreement. The purpose of a settlement agreement is for a married couple to come to terms on their rights and obligations. Our team at K. Dean Kantaras, P.A. assists clients in these agreements. Frequently used as a precursor to a divorce, these agreements are a way to have a couple work out their differences over as many issues as they deem appropriate. They can be utilized effectively to settle many contentious issues.

Some issues that can be handled via a settlement agreement include the following:

  • Amount of child support
  • Life insurance to cover child support in case of death of a spouse
  • Custody
  • Visitation
  • Support during college
  • Permanent alimony
  • Temporary alimony
  • Taxability of alimony
  • Division of marital assets
  • Division of marital debts
  • Residence in the marital home
  • Sale of the marital home
  • Pensions
  • Stocks
  • Bonds
  • Business interests and valuation
  • Professional practice interests and valuation

Settlement agreements differ from prenuptial (or antenuptial) agreements. These are agreements that are entered into prior to marriage when a couple has not yet acquired any marital assets. Be sure to contact a Clearwater family lawyer from our firm to discuss your options!

How an Attorney Can Help You Draft an Enforceable Agreement

Parties must include any issues in their settlement agreement. The only requirement is that issues covered not be illegal or against public policy. Parties need to have full and honest disclosure of assets and liabilities for the settlement agreement to be enforceable. Absent fraud or coercion, a settlement agreement can be expected to win approval of the court.

Settlement agreements can smooth the way to a less stressful divorce. A skilled legal team can assist you in the proper creation of a settlement agreement so that the likelihood is great that it will be enforceable. Without proper preparation, your settlement agreement won't do you much good! That's why it is vitally important to choose the right law firm to handle your legal matter. Our team has 59 years of combined experience and a long list of accolades and accomplishments. You can trust K. Dean Kantaras, P.A. 100%.
