Are all your assets accounted for?

Your marriage has been on the rocks for a while, but you just didn't want to go through the pain of divorce. You've waited so long that now things are particularly bad between you and your spouse. You are fighting about everything, and you are just ready to call it quits. Before starting the divorce process, make sure all your assets are accounted for.

Property division for older divorcees comes with possible expense

A person who has invested heavily in the partnership of a marriage can possibly face a loss upon divestment. Although divorce is an emotional affair, it can also be approached like a business transaction. Rates of later in life, "gray" divorces are rising, and when older individuals divorce, they sometimes face more complicated property division. The longer a pair are intertwined, the murkier are the boundaries of what property belongs to whom. In a recent news article, one expert tries to share helpful information that individuals in Florida may find helpful if they are navigating gray divorce. 

Divorce and annulment, what's the difference?

Sometimes a person doesn't know how, but they know that they want a marriage to end. Short of disappearing off the face of the earth, what options exist for dissolving the partnership with a spouse in Florida? Some people may have heard of an annulment as an option for breaking up. But what is an annulment, really? And is it different than a divorce

Does child support affect taxes?

A person facing the end of a marriage has lots of details to manage. One detail that may not immediately pop up is how the breakup will affect future tax returns. Taxes, like divorce, are another one of those intimidating issues that most people will avoid if at all possible. But anyone in Florida going through a divorce will eventually need to understand how the change will affect how they file their taxes from now on. Child support and child custody can affect how one files, as well as alimony and retirement accounts. 

A look at divorce rates by occupation

Increased availability of data in the technological age has led to increased information about people in general. One researcher has analyzed divorce data and was able to determine how rates differed for individuals by occupation and industry. The results of the analysis may be interesting to Florida residents as they ponder the concept of divorce.
