Divorce Settlements Sarasota
Divorce settlements in Sarasota can become very costly. Entering mediation or taking other steps to settle a divorce in Sarasota, instead of going to court, can help lower costs. Preparation can increase the odds of a successful mediation, settlement or collaborative divorce. Sarasota Divorce Lawyer Adam Bragg has some information to help you minimize expenses.
Having a full and thorough spreadsheet of finances is essential before negotiating child support, alimony or property division. Knowing what is needed to maintain your lifestyle can prevent serious and unexpected long-term financial consequences.
You need to know not only what your financial picture is now, but what you will need in the future. Especially if child support is involved. Setting up a budget can help determine priorities and negotiation terms. Be informed about your legal rights and duties in Florida. This is particularly important in child custody and support issues.
Given the court’s concern over the welfare of the children, non-custodial parents will have to pay child support unless they have compelling reasons for a waiver. Courts may also order parenting plans and other terms that keep both parents in their children’s lives. Knowing these laws, rights, and duties can help make negotiations worthwhile or determine whether the case should go to court.
Attorney Adam Bragg can provide advice on divorce settlements and offer guidance on the best and worst-case scenarios associated with going to court, mediation or negotiating a settlement. He can also help you determine the amount of support based on the financial situation and Florida law.
