Dealing with changing parental roles after your Florida divorce

For most couples with children, a divorce only signals the end of the marriage, not the end of their parental responsibilities. All Florida divorces involving children will consider factors between the parents based on the children's best interests. This includes child custody arrangements, alimony and child support payments.

What is property division?

Although property can be legally divided at various times in life, including during estate administration, the definition of property division we will cover here is related to divorce. When Florida couples divorce, there are likely both individual and marital assets to be considered, and dividing that property in the most equitable way can be difficult.

Some hope for Florida same-sex couples seeking divorce

Most married couples consider divorce as an unfortunate yet necessary event. After all, when spouses decide to end their marriages, there often remains important decisions that need to be made. For example, which spouse should have primary physical custody of the children? Couples also need to determine whether they will sell marital property and then split those proceeds.

How is child support determined?

Child support can be determined in a number of ways. Some couples are able to agree to support payments outside of a court room; even in such cases, it's a good idea to document the support agreement in a legal fashion to protect each party as time moves forward. Others go to court, and a Florida court makes child support decisions.

How should I plan to leave an abusive relationship?

If you are the victim of an abusive relationship, then finally making the decision to leave can be complicated by many factors. As is often the case, your abuser may have isolated you from your friends and family. Your abuser may also control your finances. You may even have been verbally abused to the point where you now lack confidence and self-esteem.

Making ends meet during your Florida divorce proceedings

When most couples decide to marry, their thoughts are seldom on preparing for an eventual divorce. In fact, despite the common perception that divorces are common, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says otherwise. According to a 2011 survey, the CDC estimates that only 3.6 marriages out of every 1,000 ended in divorce that year.

Man claims he died, so he didn't have to pay child support

Florida parents seeking child support payments from uncooperative individuals know that when someone doesn't want to pay child support, the excuses can become quite creative. While legitimate instances occur where people simply can't afford to pay the support, there are also many times when someone just doesn't want to pay and is willing to lie and cheat to avoid doing so. One case in another state illustrates just how far some people will go to avoid paying.

Types of marital assets that may be forgotten during divorce

Going through a divorce can be stressful. On top of emotional, family and social issues, people going through divorce processes are often dealing with a wide variety of legal forms and requirements. During property division negotiations, it can be easy to overlook some of the more obscure items of marital property.

Some tips on child custody traditions after divorce

There is never an ideal time for couples who share children together to end their marriages. Circumstances do not always permit divorcing spouses to select what time of year they decide to go their separate ways. For the children of those relationships, the holidays can be a particularly trying time. That's because most families have established long-standing traditions that are often focused on children's activities and events.
