Children And Spouses Of First Marriages

Children and spouses whose families have been torn apart by divorce often deal with probate disputes when their parent or former spouse remarries and then passes away. These disputes stem from Florida’s laws, which favor the current spouse over children from a prior relationship.

If a person gets married (or remarried) and does not enter into a prenuptial agreement, the current spouse may inherit from 30 to 50 percent of the estate regardless of the duration of the marriage. In these situations, children and former spouses may wish to obtain counsel to advise them. We regularly assist clients in these situations so they can understand and assert their rights.
