Will I get part of my husband’s 401(k)?

When you are preparing for a divorce in Florida, one of the biggest dilemmas you may face is determining who gets what. While some forms of property may be easy to divide, there can be others that are more confusing to split. In fact, there may be some that you do not even realize you are entitled to. One of the most common of these is a 401(k) account. Forbes.com details everything you need to know about staking your claim to what you deserve.  

How Florida’s HB 313 may impact the state’s child support system

Will I need to modify my child support agreement?

While the judge’s declaration of divorce means your marriage is dissolved, the truth is that all negotiations may not be behind you.

The Florida Office of Child Support Enforcement outlines the specifics to know  as you revisit the terms of your arrangement.

Will Florida divorce its old alimony laws?
