An overview of adoption in Florida

While adoption can be an exciting event for a family, there are important rights at issue. The rights of the biological parents, for example, must be respected. Additionally, the age of a prospective adoptee could impact any adoption decisions as a child of at least 12 years of age must consent to being adopted. An adult can also be adopted in Florida, a matter that typically requires minimal involvement of an adoptee's biological parents.

Ways to settle child custody issues

Florida parents may have different ideas about what is the best for their children and about who should be able to make those decisions. In addition to building effective communication between one another, parents who are divorced or in a middle of a divorce have multiple options when it comes to settling disputes regarding child custody.

Natural disasters often create need for international adoptions

The recent natural disaster of Hurricane Matthew is estimated to have caused more than 1,300 total deaths including 46 in the United States and more than 1,000 in Caribbean island nations such as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

How prenups can make property division easier

Prenuptial agreements are not only for rich couples in Florida with multi-million dollar checking accounts and real estate holding companies. Couples that have relatively modest assets may benefit from prenuptial agreements for a number of different reasons. A prenuptial agreement can allow spouses to set their own rules about alimony, inheritance and business assets so that those matters are not left in the control of the court system in the event of divorce.
