How can a postnuptial agreement personally help me?

The vast majority of people who decide to marry give little thought to the fact that they may experience a divorce in the future. However, the reality is that circumstances tend to change over time. Depending on the length of your marriage you may discover things about your spouse years after your wedding which might cause you to worry about how a divorce will affect you. For example, over time you may learn that your spouse is terrible at managing finances. Or perhaps you will discover that your spouse has a proclivity for abusing alcohol or drugs.

Surprising counter-petition in high-profile Florida divorce

A Florida pediatric dentist is now claiming that his ex-wife may have acted inappropriately with regards to handling their finances during their marriage. Although the couple's divorce was finalized on June 4, the dentist filed a counter-petition that same week alleging that his ex-wife set up a trust in secret where she reportedly stashed funds in excess of $2 million.

Supervised visitation: What you need to know

In most situations, parents have free access to their children during parenting time as determined by the child custody order, but sometimes, there are extenuating circumstances that bring the concept of supervised visitation into play. Whether you are seeking supervised visitation for when your children are with your ex or are trying to combat accusations of neglect or abuse, understanding why the Florida courts mandate supervised visitation in some situations can help you be better prepared for your own case.

Child custody an issue in Florida Congressman’s divorce

In late May, Florida Congressman Alan Grayson filed court documents in what represents the latest round of a contentious and high-profile divorce. According to those documents, Rep. Grayson is seeking primary physical custody and sole decision-making authority over four children he shares with his soon-to-be ex-wife of 24 years. The children range in age between 10 through 16 years old.

Understanding how temporary alimony works in Florida

Ending a marriage is never an easy undertaking. Months and even years can pass by from the time that a spouse files his or her initial petition until the time that the court issues its final decree. This may seem like an eternity for both parties, but it can be an especially difficult time on those spouses who earn considerably less income than their counterparts. This can be even more so if those spouses are also providing the primary care for any children of the marriage.

What should I include in a prenup?

Prenuptial agreements used to be thought of as only something for the rich, but couples across various socioeconomic levels are increasingly turning to prenups as a way to protect their assets and simplify the property division process in the event of a divorce later on. However, there is also much confusion about what a prenup can legally cover. Understanding what a prenuptial agreement can and cannot do for you is important to creating realistic expectations.

Florida's stance on grandparents' rights

Grandparents' rights have become an increasingly discussed aspect of child custody across Florida and the rest of the country in recent years. Many grandparents erroneously believe that they are entitled to visitation with their grandchildren no matter what, but in fact, how much consideration is given to grandparents depends largely on the particular set of circumstances and the state's laws.

Dividing up property in your Florida divorce is not always easy

In a perfect world, property division during divorces would run straight down the middle. In other words, anything either spouse brought into the marriage would remain their individual property. Additionally, anything that both parties acquired together while married would be sold and the money divided between the spouses evenly.
