Divorce is different in every state

Going through a divorce in Florida is in some ways different than going through a divorce in any other state. In fact, all 50 states have unique laws when it comes to ending a marriage. Because divorces are regulated by states and not the federal government, people whose marriages are coming to an end must first make sure that they are legal residents of the state where they want to file for divorce.

Grey divorces are on the rise

While divorce rates have been relatively steady overall for the past 10 years, older couples are divorcing at a higher rate. Florida residents may not know that one of the reasons why divorce rates in general have stabilized may also be why older folks are getting divorced at an increasing rate. It is because people are living longer than ever and getting married later in life.

Things all parents should know about child support

For Tampa parents who decide to divorce or split up, determining who will have primary custody of the children can be a long and difficult process. However, if it is not done properly, there are severe consequences that can occur. For many, child support is critical and there are steps that both parents must take in order to protect themselves.

Military divorce rate drops

Military couples in Florida and throughout the United States may be experiencing less stress than in the past. This is the theory of one RAND Corporation researcher to account for a drop in military divorces over the last several years. In 2015, it was at its lowest point in 10 years. However, at 3 percent, it was still higher than the 2.6 percent in 2001 prior to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
