The consequences of untrue domestic violence accusations

Whether you and your spouse have a dispute over how to raise children or how to spend money, couples may disagree on a number of topics. Unfortunately, disputes can lead to fights and false accusations of domestic assault and other offenses. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence in Lee County, Florida, it is essential to review your rights and the details of your case at once. The law firm of Fried and Fried understands the variety of ways these charges can throw someone's life upside down and how hard it can be for people in this position to stand up for themselves.

Deciding whether to sign a prenuptial agreement

If you are engaged, you may have a wide variety of questions with regard to tying the knot. For example, you and your spouse may be discussing whether to move, the number of children you plan on having, where your wedding will take place or any other matters related to marriage. However, prenuptial agreements can be an especially difficult discussion and it is crucial that you make the right decision. At Fried and Fried, P.A., our law firm understands how contentious prenups can be for both parties in Lee County, and all over the state of Florida.

Disestablishing paternity: When you learn the child isn't yours

In most cases, fathers establish paternity to claim parental rights like visitation or joint custody. But what happens if you find out that the child you thought you helped conceive isn't really yours? Not only do you have to deal with the fact that your girlfriend cheated on you, but now you're wondering if you're legally on the hook for another man's kid.

Reviewing the consequences of an unfair prenup

Whether you are planning to marry your partner or have been married to your spouse for many years, a variety of stressful issues may arise, such as relocation and disagreements over how children should be raised. However, in Lee County, and the whole state of Florida, prenuptial agreements can be a particularly contentious topic for couples. At Fried and Fried, P.A., our law firm also knows that some people are pushed into signing unfair prenups, which may result in a number of negative consequences.

Taking a look at paternity disputes

When it comes to paternity disputes, there are all sorts of factors that you may have to take into consideration. For example, you may believe that you are a child's father, but his or her mother may be denying that you are the child's biological father. On the other hand, someone may wrongfully claim that a child is yours in an attempt to gain access to child support or some other benefit. At Fried and Fried, P.A., we know how difficult these issues can be for parents and children in Lee County, and across Florida.

Who is considered a household or family member?

When it comes to allegations of domestic violence, the situation can be devastating for the entire family. In Lee County, and across all of Florida, each of these cases involve unique details. For example, you may be a victim of domestic violence and want to protect your loved ones from further harm or you could be facing domestic violence accusations that are based on lies. Either way, it is important to understand key terms, such as household and family members, when dealing with your case.
