Divorce topic: the Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)

The term Qualified Domestic Relations Order may sound foreign to some people, but divorced couples with retirement accounts may be well aware of its definition and implications. Splitting a retirement account pursuant to divorce can get tricky, and the rules governing this property division can vary from state to state.

Florida, handful of other states, have "electronic visitation" laws

An organization called the National Center for State Courts has issued a report concerning divorce and relocated parents. Central to its findings is that a quarter of all children in divorced families have one of their parents living at distance, that is, in another city or state. Approximately 10 million children lack regular and personal communication with one of their parents.

Focus: Military members' child custody rights during deployments

Diverse sources indicate that Florida is home to more than two dozen major military installations, with over 100,000 military members at work in the state.

Post-divorce: On keeping those communication channels open

Communication difficulties are among the most commonly cited reasons for divorce in the United States. But unlike other causes of marital failure, communication woes can continue to cause headaches for couples well into their post-divorce lives. This is because many divorced couples have to continue communicating with, and working with, one another even once their split is complete.
