Make a property division checklist during a divorce

Are you in the early stages of the divorce process? If so, now is the time to turn your attention to property division. At some point, this will consume your mind as you attempt to do what's right for you and your future.

As one half of a married couple, there is a good chance you decided at some point to make a purchase with your spouse. While there is nothing wrong with this, it can cloud the lines of ownership if you move forward with a divorce.

5 key signs that a prenup is a good idea

A prenup may be a bit of a touchy subject, but you have to remember that marriage, in the eyes of the law, isn't romantic. It's a contract. A prenup is just part of that contract, and it works to protect you should the contract ever be terminated. You may want a prenup if:

1. You're going to quit your job. Maybe you've been working for a decade, but your new spouse will now support you while you raise the kids. The prenup can put financial regulations in place so you know you and the kids will be supported after a divorce.

Mediation could be the answer to your divorce problems

In the state of Florida, family law courts expect both parties to work together in an attempt to resolve divorce related issues outside of court. This isn't always possible, but both partners should make a good effort.

Over the years, many people have found that formal mediation is the answer to all their problems. With this, you don't have to spend any time in court. However, you're still able to work through your divorce and end up in a better place when everything is said and done.

3 reasons to revisit the idea of a postnuptial agreement

A postnuptial agreement is one that you sign after your marriage. It's similar to a prenuptial agreement, because it can contain items such as what happens to money in the case of a divorce or who should obtain property if one spouse passes away. These aren't the only reasons for a postnuptial agreement, though. Here are three reasons why you should consider one.

There is more than 1 type of child custody

As you go through the divorce process, you'll likely spend a lot of time thinking about the impact it will have on your children. This will often lead to questions and concerns associated with child custody. In a perfect world, you'd be able to work with your spouse to create a plan that works for all parties involved.

Unfortunately, there are times when this doesn't happen. Instead, both parties continue to fight for their rights, eventually leaving the decision up to the court system.

Child support modification: Follow these tips

At some point, you may realize that you have no choice but to request a child support modification. Although this sounds confusing and although you may doubt that the court will agree, you should still move forward in the appropriate manner.

Here are some tips that can help you navigate the process with success:

What’s the best approach to a high asset divorce?

As you move forward with divorce, you may look back and wonder what went wrong. Of course, this won't stop you from looking forward to the future.

If you find yourself caught up in a high asset divorce, it's imperative to understand your position and the steps you can take to reach a settlement in a time efficient manner.

The benefits of shared parenting

Parenting children with your ex-spouse when you're divorced is stressful. However, the benefit of shared parenting is often the best thing for your children. Shared parenting may not be ideal at first, but it allows both parents the ability to maintain a strong relationship with their kids.

Property division: marital and non-marital property

When it comes to matters of property division in your divorce, you hope that everything moves forward in a fast and efficient manner. Of course, you also hope that things work out in your favor in the long run.

Complex property division cases often come down to one thing: separating marital and non-marital property. This sounds easy enough, but in many cases it can be a sticking point for both parties.
