Florida legislature to vote on alimony reform

Florida is one of the few states that still allows courts to grant alimony payments for a lifetime -- some say it's a throwback to past family cultures, when women were less likely to work outside the home.

Do property division rules apply to pets in Florida divorces?

When couples decide to end their marriages, there are generally two paths to the finish line.

Tip for Florida parents who have recently experienced divorce

Nothing is easy about choosing to end your marriage. That process of moving forward with your life in a new direction can be even more challenging when children are involved.

Post-divorce modifications to your Florida child custody plan

Florida family courts place a heavy emphasis on having both parents actively involved in the lives of their children.

Although the court would prefer the participation of both spouses in these activities, it also recognizes that unusual circumstances may dictate otherwise.
