Prudent financial planning includes considering divorce

Divorce negotiations can quickly become contentious for Florida couples when potentially delicate matters like spousal support or property division are discussed, and this may be particularly true when one of the spouses involved has made most or all of the couple's important financial decisions. Financial planning and family law advisers tend to agree that the best way to avoid such situations is for spouses to take a more proactive approach and consider the possibility of divorce when making monetary decisions.

Property division and other issues in Florida divorces

While actor Johnny Depp is in the middle of a potentially expensive divorce to Amber Heard, experts say that the recent sale of his extensive art collection is probably unrelated. It was in the planning stages before the two announced their divorce. Since the two were only married for 15 months, it is unlikely the paintings would have been considered marital property anyway. Nevertheless, the situation brings to light the process of a divorce "fire sale."

Judge rules man must pay alimony despite prenup

A Florida couple might draw up a prenuptial agreement hoping it will protect both of them from spousal support obligations, but this is not always the case. On June 8, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that a divorced man who signed an Affidavit of Support to bring his immigrant spouse to the United States was still obligated to support her under that immigration document despite a prenuptial agreement that stated otherwise.

Additional child support for private school tuition

For many Florida parents, private school is a must for their children's education. When a couple is no longer together, it may be prohibitively expensive for one parent to pay the cost of the tuition alone. Some custodial parents then ask for courts to order additional child support amounts to help them pay for their children's private school education.

Full faith and credit for child custody and visitation orders

Sometimes after a custody and visitation order in Florida has been issued, one parent will later relocate to a different state. The parent may then wonder if the custody and visitation order that was issued by the Florida court will still apply in his or her new state.
