By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

A prenuptial agreement (“prenup”) is a contract between two people intending to marry.

Establishing Paternity & Child Support In Florida

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Child support is a right that belongs to the child, rather than their parents; what this means is that if a child’s father is not legally established, they do not have the right to collect child support from him. It is not uncommon for a single mother to file an action for parentage (paternity)… Read More »


Can I Avoid Florida Probate Altogether?

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

When a person passes away in Florida, most of the time, their beneficiaries do not want to be burdened with the long, drawn-out process of probate. However, most of the time it cannot be avoided, either because the deceased person did not properly plan their estate, or they had assets that are required to… Read More »

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Unless they are disqualified by the circumstances of their discharge, anyone who serves in the United States Armed Forces has the right to claim certain Veterans’ Affairs (VA) benefits.

Support For A Dependent Adult Child

Can Unenforced Community Association Restrictions Be ‘Revived?’

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

There are many different documents that govern a Florida community association: bylaws, the Declaration of Condominium, the conditions, covenants and restrictions (CC&Rs), and other rules that may have been passed by the board. In theory, they are meant to be observed and followed, but over time, it is not uncommon for enforcement to grow… Read More »


The Process Of Dividing Military Retired Pay

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Just like the marital home or the automobile, a military servicemember’s retired pay is an extremely valuable asset in many divorces. However, it can also be one of the most difficult to distribute, because of the confusion that often surrounds it. This is especially true if one spouse is a servicemember and the other… Read More »


The Nuts & Bolts Of Florida Prenuptial Agreements

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Prenuptial agreements, shortened to ‘prenups,’ were formerly a tool primarily for second marriages, particularly when an older spouse sought to protect certain assets from a younger one.

Are Florida’s 55+ Communities Discriminatory?

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Florida’s Fair Housing Act (FHA) and its federal equivalent prohibit discrimination in housing, specifically holding that one may not be discriminated against on the basis of race, national origin, religion, disability, familial status, and certain other characteristics. However, there is a significant exception to this policy, and it deals with age. In 1995, federal… Read More »


Is Probate Necessary If No Will Exists?

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

When a person dies in the state of Florida, they usually leave a Last Will and Testament behind. However, this is not always the case.
