In the state of Florida, marital agreements are legally binding written contracts which may address issues such as spousal support, child support or custody, visitation, property, asset, or debt division, and other issues that often arise in the event a couple divorces. Breached settlements often involve refusal to pay spousal or child support, a debt that was acquired during the marriage, interfering with visitation, or other issues that were settled and agreed to by all parties, but have since been breached.
In some cases, it becomes necessary for a settlement to be enforced. In other words, both spouses may have agreed to a marital settlement, however one spouse is not in compliance. Whether one parent is not paying the agreed to child support or a post-nuptial/pre-marital agreement is not being complied with, it may become necessary for an agreement or "contract" signed off by both parties to be enforced. There are a variety of ways this is accomplished, depending on the circumstances.Issues With Agreements in Central Florida
With pre-marital and post-nuptial agreements, there are often advantages and limitations. In certain situations, pre-marital agreements are not enforceable. There are also frequently issues with other marital settlement agreements, such as an ex-spouse failing to make child support or alimony payments, or pay the mortgage if he/she has been ordered to do so. It may be necessary to return to court when a spouse breaches a settlement agreement. When two individuals come to an agreement regarding the issues unique to your particular situation and one party or the other fails to follow the terms, it may be necessary to have the agreement enforced which typically requires the filing of a formal request or motion with the court in order to have the agreement enforced.
Whether the agreement pertains to child support, one of the six types of alimony in Florida, division of property or assets, or is a pre-marital or post-nuptial agreement, things do not always go as smoothly as planned. One spouse or another may not play by the rules, which is why it is vital to obtain the support and guidance of a dedicated Orlando family law attorney who will work to ensure you are treated fairly.Contact Adams & Luka Today
