Handling Complex Family Law Matters
Attorney Pamela Gordon has extensive experience dealing with a variety of complex and sensitive divorce proceedings. We handle cases involving:
- High net worth property division. For high net worth couples, divorce is often more complicated than for other couples. In Florida, property must be divided equitably, which does not necessarily mean equally. When substantial wealth is involved, the process can be more complicated. We review all of the assets and incomes of both spouses to help you understand what outcome to expect.
- Custody and time-sharing issues. When it comes to determining child custody/time-sharing and child support issues during a divorce, the court always looks at the best interests of the child. This can be complicated. We help you determine the best time-sharing and support plan, taking into account the health, education and overall well-being of your children.
- Paternity issues. When parents are not married, it makes the time-sharing and support process more complex. We help unwed mothers secure child support by establishing the father’s identity. We also help fathers who seek to establish a parenting plan/time-sharing schedule with their child.
Our firm handles these complex issues and more. At the Law Office of Pamela M. Gordon P.A., we know that the family law decisions you make will have lifelong implications for you and your children. We are here to help you through the most difficult legal problems.
Negotiating And Drafting Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
We help couples draft fair pre- and postnuptial agreements in case of separation, as an extra layer of protection in the event of a divorce or death. Your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may cover a broad range of issues, including:
- Property division
- What to do with your estate if one of you dies
- Debt liability
Both parties must be willing to enter into the agreement, and both must sign it. At the Law Office of Pamela M. Gordon P.A., we will ensure that your premarital or postnuptial agreement is drafted in your best interests.
Modifying Your Marital Settlement Agreement
As time goes on, your circumstances may change. You may realize that the terms of your divorce agreement no longer make sense for you or your children. We can help you negotiate a new, fair agreement that benefits all parties involved. We handle post-divorce modifications involving:
- Alimony – If there is a substantial change in one or both parties’ income, the terms of the alimony agreement may change. This can be because of a promotion, disability, job loss, remarriage or any other factor that may affect someone’s financial situation.
- Child support – A significant change in a financial situation will also affect the terms of a child support agreement. You must prove that your ex-spouse is making much more or less or that the financial needs of the children have changed to modify the support terms.
- Modifications – If a parent fails to spend time with the children as dictated in the parenting plan, that may be a basis to retroactively modify child support.
- Time-sharing – If the previous parenting plan or time-sharing schedule is not working or a child’s needs or a parent’s lifestyle and circumstances have changed, then a modification of the time-sharing arrangement might be necessary.
- Relocation – If one parent decides to relocate to another state or county, a time-sharing modification might be warranted. To modify a parenting plan or time-sharing arrangement, the moving party must prove a substantial change in circumstances.
To modify a marital settlement agreement, you or your ex-spouse must have experienced a substantial change in circumstances since the entry of the final judgment. We can help you determine if your situation may meet the requirements for modification.
