    Drafting Marriage Contracts in Florida, 11th Edition
    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    Drafting a premarital or marital settlement agreement is a delicate process. The final document must not only reflect the intent of the parties but be clear enough to withstand future efforts to modify it and to avoid the assorted tax pitfalls and consequences. Drafting Marriage Contracts in Florida guides the practitioner through this potential minefield with chapters discussing general standards for drafting and review, drafting and defending a premarital agreement, what to include in, and how not to arrive at, a marital settlement agreement, tax consequences of alimony, support, and property settlement provisions, use of agreements in estate planning, and challenging, modifying, and enforcing agreements.

    Detailed forms that can be used to produce a premarital agreement and a marital settlement agreement are provided.

    The Eleventh Edition updates all statutes, rules, forms, and case law.

    Highlights of the new edition include:

          •  New discussion regarding
              ◦  Same-sex marriages
              ◦  Property rights in premarital agreements
              ◦  Affordable Care Act and Premium Tax credit
          •  New Case Law
          •  Revised statutes and rules
          •  Updated forms to include same-sex marriages

    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    Turn to this manual when a probate matter appears headed toward litigation. Leading Florida probate practitioners will guide you through the complex issues that arise in probate such as homestead, will construction proceedings, creditors' claims, and compensation disputes.

    The Tenth Edition of Litigation Under Florida Probate Code discusses numerous recent statutory and rules changes and reflects the latest case law. This new edition also incorporates discussions of hot topics including:

          • The unconstitutionality of Florida's ban on same-sex marriage, Brenner v. Scott, 999 F. Supp. 2d 1278 (N.D. Fla. 2014).

          • The "principle of priority" and what triggers the commencement of proceedings under this principle, Perelman v. Estate of Perelman, 124 So.3d 983 (Fla 4th DCA 2013).

          • The adoption of adults under F.S. 63.042(1).

          • The Slayer Statute, F.S. 732.802, and a discussion regarding how the statute does not require a beneficiary to have physically commit the murder--an instigator or co-perpetrator of the murder may be considered a slayer under this statute.

          • The circuit court's exclusive jurisdiction to determine the validity of a property owner's claimed homestead exemption, F.S. 222.10.

          • The probate court's discretion to deny appointment of a personal representative on the basis of an existing conflict of interest as it relates to intestate estate administration, Long v. Willis, 113 So.3d 80 (Fla. 2d DCA 2013).

          • The ability and duty of a successor personal representative to bring legal malpractice claim on behalf of the estate against a predecessor personal representative, Bookman v. Davidson, 136 So.3d 1276 (Fla. 1st DCA 2014).

          • Dismissal of a personal injury case is not required due to the death of the plaintiff; the case is suspended until personal representative is added as a party, and has received reasonable opportunity to amend the complaint, Capone v. Phillip Morris USA, Inc., 116 So.3d 363 (Fla. 2013).

          • Analysis of Florida's lien recovery formula under F.S. 409.910(11)(f) as a "default allocation" rule only, Davis v. Roberts 130 So.3d 264 (Fla. 5th DCA 2013), and the recent United States Supreme Court decision Wos v. E.M.A., 133 S.Ct. 1391, 185 L.Ed.2d 471 (2013).

    Drafting Marriage Contracts in Florida, 11th Edition
    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    Drafting a premarital or marital settlement agreement is a delicate process. The final document must not only reflect the intent of the parties but be clear enough to withstand future efforts to modify it and to avoid the assorted tax pitfalls and consequences. Drafting Marriage Contracts in Florida guides the practitioner through this potential minefield with chapters discussing general standards for drafting and review, drafting and defending a premarital agreement, what to include in, and how not to arrive at, a marital settlement agreement, tax consequences of alimony, support, and property settlement provisions, use of agreements in estate planning, and challenging, modifying, and enforcing agreements.

    Detailed forms that can be used to produce a premarital agreement and a marital settlement agreement are provided.

    The Eleventh Edition updates all statutes, rules, forms, and case law.

    Highlights of the new edition include:

          •  New discussion regarding
              ◦  Same-sex marriages
              ◦  Property rights in premarital agreements
              ◦  Affordable Care Act and Premium Tax credit
          •  New Case Law
          •  Revised statutes and rules
          •  Updated forms to include same-sex marriages

    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    Turn to this manual when a probate matter appears headed toward litigation. Leading Florida probate practitioners will guide you through the complex issues that arise in probate such as homestead, will construction proceedings, creditors' claims, and compensation disputes.

    The Tenth Edition of Litigation Under Florida Probate Code discusses numerous recent statutory and rules changes and reflects the latest case law. This new edition also incorporates discussions of hot topics including:

          • The unconstitutionality of Florida's ban on same-sex marriage, Brenner v. Scott, 999 F. Supp. 2d 1278 (N.D. Fla. 2014).

          • The "principle of priority" and what triggers the commencement of proceedings under this principle, Perelman v. Estate of Perelman, 124 So.3d 983 (Fla 4th DCA 2013).

          • The adoption of adults under F.S. 63.042(1).

          • The Slayer Statute, F.S. 732.802, and a discussion regarding how the statute does not require a beneficiary to have physically commit the murder--an instigator or co-perpetrator of the murder may be considered a slayer under this statute.

          • The circuit court's exclusive jurisdiction to determine the validity of a property owner's claimed homestead exemption, F.S. 222.10.

          • The probate court's discretion to deny appointment of a personal representative on the basis of an existing conflict of interest as it relates to intestate estate administration, Long v. Willis, 113 So.3d 80 (Fla. 2d DCA 2013).

          • The ability and duty of a successor personal representative to bring legal malpractice claim on behalf of the estate against a predecessor personal representative, Bookman v. Davidson, 136 So.3d 1276 (Fla. 1st DCA 2014).

          • Dismissal of a personal injury case is not required due to the death of the plaintiff; the case is suspended until personal representative is added as a party, and has received reasonable opportunity to amend the complaint, Capone v. Phillip Morris USA, Inc., 116 So.3d 363 (Fla. 2013).

          • Analysis of Florida's lien recovery formula under F.S. 409.910(11)(f) as a "default allocation" rule only, Davis v. Roberts 130 So.3d 264 (Fla. 5th DCA 2013), and the recent United States Supreme Court decision Wos v. E.M.A., 133 S.Ct. 1391, 185 L.Ed.2d 471 (2013).

    Florida Standard Jury Instructions: Contract and Business Cases, Second Edition, with 2016 Supplement
    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    In June 2013, the Florida Supreme Court authorized the publication of Florida Standard Jury Instructions: Contract and Business Cases. These instructions contain the "how to write instructions" appendix section of the Florida Supreme Court Committee's Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases, Sections 100, 200, 300, 600, 700, and 800 of those instructions, as well as Sections 400 and 500 that focus specifically on contract and business instructions. The Second Edition, now presented in an easy-to-use loose-leaf binder, updates the instructions with the changes incorporated after this title was originally produced.

    Accordingly, the new business and contract-specific instructions are limited to Sections 400 and 500 of the instructions:

    •  Section 400: Substantive Instructions, contains instructions for the principal issues the jury is to resolve and the legal principles governing the resolution of those issues, organized according to specific causes of action. These instructions are individually numbered under 416 in order to not conflict with the already existing instructions numbered 401 through 415 by the Florida Supreme Court Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases.

    •  Section 500: Damages, contains instructions on damages arranged so that the various elements of damage proper for consideration in any given case may be selected. The model charges contain guidance on straightforward and complicated or multiple claim cases. These instructions are individually numbered under 504 to not conflict with the instructions already existing numbered 501 through 503 by the Florida Supreme Court Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases.

    View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

    In March 2010, the Florida Supreme Court issued a decision reorganizing and renumbering the Florida Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases, the first comprehensive revision of the instructions since their inception in 1967. Many instructions were revised to make them more understandable for jurors. In addition, the Court adopted substantive amendments to several instructions.

    Highlights of the this reorganization of the instructions include:

    •   Reorganization and renumbering of the substantive areas into separate sections that incorporate pertinent standard instructions tailored to that specific area of the law
    •   Implementation of "plain English" terminology to improve juror understanding
    •   Reordering of the timing and sequencing of instructions during the trial process to improve communication to the jurors
    •   Revision of the Notes on Use to improve currency, eliminate outdated references, clarify the points being made, and point out areas where the committee has not taken a position.

    The Third Edition updates the instructions, incorporating the miscellaneous revisions and corrections that have been made through 2015.
