Does Florida recognize temporary alimony in divorces?

If you are currently considering divorce, it's likely that your concerns for your financial future are second only to the care of your children. Most married couples pool their incomes when it comes to paying for housing, food, transportation and the majority of other necessities. Depending on the length of your marriage, it's likely that both you and your future ex-spouse have come to rely on those shared funds to maintain your current standard of living.

Some child support basics: the court’s role

Ending a marriage can be a difficult, emotional thing. When there are children in the family, there are often many issues to be resolved. Although, at times, the process can be contentious, providing what they believe is best for children is usually at the heart of both parents' positions. Florida courts, however, have discretion in deciding some of these matters. Custody, visitation and monetary support terms are the topmost findings to be made.

Domestic violence accusations and you

Domestic violence accusations are always serious. Whether you are the accused or the one asking the courts to grant a restraining order against a family member, you need solid legal representation from attorneys who fully understand the gravity and complexity of the situation. This is especially important if the accusations are also part of larger family law proceedings such as a custody battle or divorce.

Florida woman upset by delay of child support

A single mother in Jacksonville, Florida, says that she is angry because her child support payments have met with several unexpected delays. In particular, the woman says that the Florida Department of Revenue has inexplicably failed to initiate a timely release of payments to her which they received from her ex-husband. The woman told a reporter that the agency received funds via direct deposit for the entire amount of a scheduled child support payment on April 27, yet she still had not received that money as of May 12.

Why coparenting is important

While a divorce means the end of the marital relationship, it does not mean the end of the family unit. It is imperative that both parents work together to coparent with the best interests of the children in mind, no matter how the former partners may feel about each other. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. To be able to work with your ex-spouse successfully when it comes to the children, it's important to understand how positive co-parenting impacts the kids.

How a premarital agreement can help protect your future

If you are currently considering marriage, then the prospect of divorcing your fiancé is probably one of the furthest things down on your "to do" list. However, you can avoid many future complications by taking the time now to meet with a Florida family law attorney and began drafting a prenuptial agreement.

Women and family financial management after a divorce

No matter how amicably a marriage ends, there will be impact on husbands, wives and children. It's likely, however, each will feel it in different ways. Women going through a divorce, in particular, are often faced with reduced resources. But sensible planning based on understanding might lessen the financial stress that building a different future might trigger.

Political infighting halts revamped Florida alimony law

A recent disagreement late between Florida lawmakers last month has put the brakes on a potential realignment of the state's alimony laws. Alimony, also known as spousal support, is money paid by one spouse to another after a divorce to support that spouse receiving those funds. Typically, Florida family courts will award spousal support in situations where a spouse may not be able to support themselves or their children following a divorce.
