Handling your spouse when you say you want a divorce

No one wants to tell your spouse that you want a divorce. It is generally an unpleasant experience that is rife with emotion. Initiating a breakup can be even more difficult when the other person involved in the divorce is actively trying to make you stay in the relationship. Both men and women are guilty of ostensibly ignoring their relationship problems until it is simply too late. So, what do you do when your soon-to-be ex-spouse tries to convince you to stay? We have some coping mechanisms to help you achieve a clean break.

Man arrested for domestic violence after recent marriage

Woman takes girl after visitation, facing abduction charge

A Florida woman who allegedly kidnapped her child in May is facing federal criminal charges in connection with the incident. The 22-year-old woman apparently absconded with the 2-year-old girl in order to avoid vaccinating the youngster. The abduction reportedly occurred after the girl's father had dropped her off with her mother for a court-ordered visitation. The woman is accused of transporting her child across state lines in an effort to avoid prosecution in Florida.

Son's ashes not marital property, says court

Divorcing couples in Florida often work to divide marital property, and it's not surprising that disputes over fair division arise. Though property tends to encompass assets such as money or real estate, many couples have sentimental items or property that cause tension in a divorce. One Florida couple is currently battling over the equitable distribution of their son's remains.

Witness protection program complicates Florida divorce

What happens if you want to divorce someone in the witness protection program? Although this is a relatively rare request, one Florida couple is facing some difficulty in ending their marriage because the Federal Bureau of Prisons has the man locked up in a secret detention facility. This inconvenient fact is making it nearly impossible for the two to divorce, since federal officials have to serve as intermediaries in the case.
