Gainesville Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys
Prenuptial agreements, which are entered into before a couple is married, and post-nuptial agreements, which are entered into after marriage, are often complicated and misunderstood documents. Legal assistance is essential to ensuring the proper preparation and drafting of these important papers. A wide variety of information regarding assets, including real estate, stocks and much more must be gathered and carefully considered.

Clearing Up Prenup Misconceptions
Prenuptial agreements are often thought of as documents reserved only for the wealthy or for those who do not have a lot of faith in the strength of their marriage. The fact is, a prenup can benefit all types of couples from all walks of life. While they do serve to protect an individual’s assets in the event of a divorce, a prenup can also protect you from a spouse’s debt should your marriage come to an end. They can also serve to protect your interests even if you remain married.
A prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement is best thought of as a form of insurance. After all, you do not take out a homeowner’s policy with the expectation that your house will someday burn down. However, if the unthinkable should happen it is nice to know that your assets will be protected.

CONTEMPT AND ENFORCEMENT
Court rulings are enforceable. When a party fails to abide by a court’s order there are two possible ways to have the court enforce the order. A court may impose sanctions and/or hold a party in contempt. The type of enforcement depends upon the language in the order and type of violation.
In many family law cases there exists orders to pay child support and/or alimony. If you have been awarded child support and/or alimony and the obligated person is not paying as court ordered, the person can be found in contempt of court. Contempt proceedings allows a judge to enforce the court order with sanctions to encourage payment and deter future noncompliance with the court order.
A court may also use enforcement to actions to have a party comply with the terms of an order of equitable distribution. The courts have various options to enforce provisions of orders including but not limited to monetary judgments.
Our attorney’s represented the Department of Revenue in enforcement/contempt hearings for child support enforcement for over ten years. Contact our office if the other party has failed to abide by a court order whether it is monetary or any timesharing provisions of an order.
