Family Law

Richard A. Schurr has helped many people during one of the most difficult periods of their lives; the dissolution of their marriage. Even though Florida is a "no-fault" state (either party may seek a divorce without showing just cause), simple and complex divorces alike often involve the division of marital property and debts, as well as issues of spousal support (alimony), child support, and child custody. These issues can have long term ramifications for the parties and their children, and can often involve many other professionals, including forensic accountants and mental health experts.

If the parties own a family business, the financial issues can become quite complex. Often times business valuations are needed, and tax returns, financial statements, and investment statements must be reviewed and understood. In addition, small business owners sometimes fail to report all of their income in order to reduce the amount to be paid to the other spouse. Richard A. Schurr understands the need to have complete and accurate information as to the value and nature of the parties assets and income. Pre-nuptial agreements and Post-nuptial agreements can also often involve issues of spousal support, business valuations, and the need to review and understand financial documents. The same is true with regard to family law mediations.
