How being a primary caretaker influences custody rulings

Many child custody cases can be settled out of court with an agreement between the two parents. When this is not possible, however, a judge will make the important custody decisions. Judges in custody cases in Florida and across the United States tend to award primary physical custody to the parent who spends the most time with the children, also called the "primary caretaker."

How to create a solid divorce settlement agreement

Couples in Florida who are getting a divorce may need to create a divorce settlement agreement if they have children or will continue to have shared financial interests after the marriage ends. Once the agreement is in place, people should resist the temptation to deviate from the agreement even if it might be in their interests to do so or if they want to try to be on good terms with their spouse.

Different divorce options

When a Florida couple files for divorce, they may assume that they must go in front of a judge to determine who the kids will live with and how they will divide their marital property. However, this process can be time consuming and expensive for both parties. There are several other options that may have if they can work together.

Accounting for all assets in high net worth divorces

When a couple with a high net worth divorces, there are many more opportunities for mistakes on either side. The high value of the property involved can make it tempting for one party or the other to be less than forthcoming about the nature and size of all the relevant assets. While divorces area almost always difficult, committing to honestly and fairly dividing all the relevant assets is one way to keep the proceedings fair and civil for everyone involved.

Problems with social media during divorce

People in Florida who are getting a divorce might find their emails or texts under subpoena. They should also keep in mind that their spouse's attorney might be examining their social media profile for any discrepancies. For example, one man asked for spousal support because he did not have a job. However, on social media, he posted about his job and a vacation that he took. Another attorney was able to get more child support for his client when he found that her former spouse had listed a side business on LinkedIn that had not been disclosed in court.
