Dividing artwork during divorce

Handling the division of property can be difficult in any divorce, but certain occupations and hobbies can make the process even more complicated. If you are an artist in Florida, you may find that determining ownership of your artwork is trickier than you imagined it would be. We at The Law Office of Philip J. Schipani can help you reach a fair and reasonable agreement during your divorce, even if that means splitting your artwork.

What can a postnuptial agreement accomplish?

If you are a husband or wife, you live in Florida and you did not create a prenuptial agreement before your marital union, you may find reason to create and sign a postnuptial agreement sometime during your marriage. Couples choose to do so for a myriad of reasons, and these legally binding agreements can accomplish any number of things based on a couple’s unique needs. 

What needs to be included in your parenting plan

One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce can be determining child custody. In most cases, you will need to present a parenting plan to the judge before you can have your custody arrangement approved. We at The Law Office of Philip J. Schipani can help you navigate the rules and restrictions that the Florida state courts have outlined when it comes to developing your parenting plan.

Are there ways to ensure being awarded custody?

Under Florida state law, both parents have equal rights to being awarded custody of their children in a divorce. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement, the court will step in. In doing so, the court will look at some specific things to determine whether it is in the children's best interest to be placed with you or your spouse.
