A Message From Senior Partner and Owner Tom Marks...

To all our friends, family and supporters of The Marks Law Firm:
 
I can't believe how fast this year has blown by. As each year seems to fly by faster than the year before, it makes me realize how important it is to make the most of the time we have.
 
I have to say that 2015 had to be the best year The Marks Law Firm has had in it's 23 years of existence. Our Team of attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants and administrative support personnel have gelled into the most amazing high performance professionals that I am proud to call "family.” They not only care for one another but also for our clients and they dig deep, work hard and reach out to comfort our clients through trying times.

The turmoil suffered through a difficult divorce is something that can refine us. We can become more self-aware, more sensitive to others and better able to trust our heavenly Father. The apostle Paul summarized his present sufferings as not being ‘worthy of comparing to the glory that would be revealed in him’ one day. He allowed the trials of this life to strengthen him and cause him to persevere and rest in a hope that would not disappoint. Make the choice to let the hardships of life refine you and mold you into a person of compassion, truth and love. Allow yourself to see your trials as the gift they can be transformed into. And during this Advent season, remember that the greatest Gift of all came in the form of a baby, the unrecognized gift of Life Eternal.
 
Wishing you peace and joy this Christmas,

Thomas D. Marks, Esq.

How do I Protect My Assets in a Divorce?

Divorce requires a division of assets acquired during the marriage, so you can’t keep every asset you own out of your spouse’s hands. Knowing that, is there any way to protect your assets in Divorce?

Obtain a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement between future spouses that sets forth the rights and obligations of each spouse upon divorce, death, and even during the marriage. 
 

How Much Alimony Can I Receive From My Divorce?

Alimony is one of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce.
Some cases can carry on for years because spouses cannot agree on alimony.

Under Florida Statute 61.08, the amount of Alimony you can receive from your divorce depends on several factors starting with:

Need: First, the court must determine whether or not you or your spouse needs spousal support (aka – alimony).

Ability: Second, the court must determine whether or not you or your spouse has the actual ability to pay spousal support.
