Celebrity claims custody children in prenuptial agreement

Going into a marriage with well-communicated expectations not only helps during the course of the relationship, but may also make proceedings easier in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement may seem like a romantic downer for Miami, Florida, residents, but they can help ensure individuals understand each other before committing to matrimony. For one celebrity, a premarital agreement may protect more than assets.

Girl abducted after 2009 visitation found with dad in Mexico

A girl that had gone missing after a parental abduction four years ago has finally been returned to her mother in Florida. The child, who had been taken by her father after a scheduled visitation in 2009, had been living with her dad in a remote region of Mexico.

Florida judge refused to grant same sex divorce

As the battle over same-sex marriage continues in many states, couples in Florida face a related battle. Same-sex couples married in states other than Florida are now seeking to divorce in Florida, but judges are refusing to grant divorces because the state doesn't allow same-sex marriage in the first place.

Social Security can be affected by divorce

Did you know that Social Security benefits can be affected by your Florida divorce? Even though you may not be close to retirement age, it is still important to understand the impact of a marital dissolution on your Social Security benefits. Family law professionals say that most couples are uninformed about the status of their benefits after a divorce, and they may miss out on financial compensation because of this oversight.

Man owes child support, ordered not to have more children

Miami parents who are going through or have gone through divorce know that the support of children is an important matter. Deciding on child support can be an emotional and stressful endeavor, and after papers have been filed, circumstances may require child support modification. In any case, simply not paying child support that is ordered by divorce papers is never a good idea, and it can lead to serious consequences that include jail time.

1 in 4 divorces involve Americans 50 or older

Suddenly single during your senior years? You are likely among the growing number of Florida residents who are dissolving their marriage after decades with their partners. So-called "gray divorces" in the 50-and-older population have more than doubled nationwide in recent decades, according to information from the U.S. Census. In fact, in 2010, about 25 percent of divorces involve those older than 40.

International premarital agreements and Florida courts

For some, marriage is the simplest story ever told: Two people meet, fall in love and live happily ever after. What happens when happily ever after is derailed and the simple love story becomes a complex divorce story? For couples with international premarital agreements, divorce in a Florida court could be simplified by a bill introduced by legislators.

More women homeless because of domestic violence, help needed

When you think of the homeless population in Florida, would you imagine that many of these people have been victims of domestic abuse? The fact is that domestic violence victims often lose their access to stable housing options because they are worried about their own health and welfare. When a protective order simply is not enough, victims must often flee their residences in order to ensure their own physical safety.

Does Florida child custody case belong in tribal court?

A recent court case in Miami reflects a legal struggle that is prevalent in some other states but relatively rare in Florida.
