I am absolutely speechless and still in the emotional hangover of completing my divorce case. I feel that I can´t find the right words to thank Scott and his team enough. I was stuck in the case for almost 2 years and in the middle of a divorce case completely focused on the financial aspects and nobody seemed to be in the shoes of a father in another country fairway from the children for 10 months. I made the though decision to change the lawyer during the final course of the divorce, when so many important decisions were about to be taken. I never expected to receive so much support and such empathy from a lawyer before. I was completely exhausted, faithless of so many unfair things and running out of hope. He literally jumped into the case and due his abilities, his attention to details and mainly due his interpersonal skills, he was able to finally complete the case after 2 months. His good negotiating skills and appropriate approach really made the difference and allowed us to reach the outcome I was expecting. I can´t think of a more worthy attorney to be recognized and appreciated by a client. I told him that I trusted him with my life and I am so glad now about it. Thank you very much indeed.

Dana and Scott went above and beyond to produce quick results in a not so easy case. It is safe to say that I am now free and clear from a situation that was causing me much distress.

Divorce is a very long and daunting process. I was going to try to file without a lawyer, but the amount of time and effort it takes to get everything together and fill everything out properly is mentally exhausting. As soon as I found Dara and Scott, the biggest weight was lifted off my shoulders! They're life savers. Professional, friendly, empathetic, and caring, yet ruthless when you need them to be! They got me exactly what I needed and got the job done quickly and efficiently. Highly recommended!

I first met Scott few months ago while searching for a law support to get my divorce unstuck and complete the case. I was never again to meet a lawyer so clever and with the same high level of skills and abilities. Due to his patience and wide knowledge on the overall, he was capable to fast guide the process and complete the global settlement faster than anyone who worked in my case. In conclusion, I can highly recommend Scott and his team and I am extremely confident you will find him a very valuable person and more importantly and exceptional advocate. Conocí a Scott por primera vez hace unos meses mientras buscaba apoyo legal para resolver mi divorcio y completar el caso. Nunca más volvería a encontrarme con un abogado tan inteligente y con el mismo alto nivel de habilidades y destrezas. Debido a su paciencia y amplio conocimiento en general, fue capaz de guiar rápidamente el proceso y completar el acuerdo global más rápido que cualquiera que haya trabajado en mi caso. En conclusión, puedo recomendar encarecidamente a Scott y su equipo y estoy muy seguro de que encontrará en él una persona muy valiosa y, lo que es más importante, un defensor excepcional.

Permanent Alimony: What to know

Unlike some states around the country, Florida law gives judges the power to award permanent alimony or spousal support in certain divorces. There is no bright line rule or formula to determine one’s entitlement to permanent alimony. Instead, judges must examine the facts of each divorce case. To fully understand how permanent alimony is treated in Florida, it may be helpful to review a few details about alimony in general.  Alimony or “spousal support” describes a court ordered payment from one spouse to another spouse after divorce (or sometimes while the divorce is pending). Note that alimony is separate and

What is Non-Marital Property in Florida?

In Florida non-marital property is clearly defined by § 61.075(6)(b), Florida Statutes. In general, Florida law provides that non-marital property includes any assets acquired or liabilities (debts) incurred by either the husband or wife prior to the marriage, including assets acquired or liabilities incurred in exchange for those pre-marital assets or liabilities. Assets that one spouse receives during the marriage that are either “noninterspousal” gifts (meaning not a gift from the other spouse) or an inheritance will be non-marital property.
