In a Tampa FL divorce can we hire an attorney just to make our divorce agreement legal?
If you and your spouse can come to a complete agreement as to the terms of your divorce, you could retain an attorney to draft a marital settlement agreement which includes the agreed upon terms. In Florida, an attorney can ethically only represent one of the parties to the divorce and cannot give the other legal advice; however, the party who is represented can relay to us all of the terms of the agreement and it can be put into a legally binding agreement. When it is completed, the represented party would review it and if agreeable, submit it to the other party to review and sign. We would not be able to answer their legal questions, but they would have the right to retain an attorney to review the agreement with them as well. Call All Family Law Group, P.A. at 813-672-1900 or email us for a free consultation to discuss your case and the terms of the agreement.
