In today's fast-paced technological society, we are increasingly demanding instant access to a variety of services through the use of cellphone apps.

Are same-sex divorces possible in Florida?

Across the nation, marriage and divorce law is in confusion when it comes to dealing with same-sex unions. Because some states allow same-sex marriage and others don't, there are a growing number of cases of individuals seeking legal recourse related to marriage when state law doesn't support filing for divorce.

Equitable distribution of stock options: Not as easy as you think

Scores of Florida children have not received the financial assistance they need because their child support payments have been delayed. You may think that this phenomenon is caused by so-called "deadbeat" parents -- but you would be wrong. In fact, the state is holding on to millions of dollars in child support, depriving families of the financial help they desperately need. An investigative report showed that 4,000 families in three Florida counties are owed $463,000. Consider the overdue amounts throughout the state, and the figure skyrockets to nearly $30 million.
