Ways of Enforcing a Marital Settlement Agreement Are Limited

Tragically the stories of people getting away with not paying child support, alimony, or MSA debts, or neglecting their parental timesharing and parenting plan obligations are all too frequent. With the cost of legal representation and court costs, getting even what help is available is all too often impossible. However, should you need representation for obtaining child support arrears in Florida you can, at no cost, have the Florida Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement file and process your case. This is helpful for many needy recipients of back child support, but as there are usually over 1,000 cases being processed at a time, there is a several month wait to have a case heard.

Ways to Divorce

Divorce can be a difficult as well as psychologically tolling process on all parties involved. When it comes to divorce, there is not just one way to divorce. Parties can choose to each hire a lawyer to represent them during the divorce process, parties can choose to work together with a mediator to assist them in crafting an amicable agreement or each party can choose to hire a collaborative divorce lawyer and work with each other and the lawyers with the goal of resolving issues and avoiding court.

Recognition of Foreign Divorce in the Philippines

Philippine courts do not recognize foreign decrees, such as a divorce decree, unless the same is proven as having been validly obtained abroad. When a Filipino gets divorced, his or her marital status as indicated in the records of the NSO (now Philippine Statistics Authority) cannot be changed to “single” by merely presenting a divorce decree. The Court needs to order the NSO to change the said entry to enable the Filipino divorcee to remarry.

Important Decision on Prenuptial Agreements in Singapore

In the past, Singapore followed the English rule that prenuptial agreements are generally unenforceable. However, more recent developments, both in England as well as in Singapore, have held this rule is outdated and should give way to a principle that prenuptial agreements may be considered, as part of all the circumstances in a case, in a court's determination of what is just and fair.
