What does your military service mean for your custody order?

Your service in the United States military affects many aspects of your life, and it is likely it will have an impact on your divorce as well. The end of your marriage will signal many significant changes, and when one or both spouses are in the military, it can complicate certain matters.

Equitable property division may require research during divorce

When one is served with divorce papers, the first reaction may be, what now? The next steps may not be immediately clear, and a feeling of being overwhelmed may set in. Financial concerns can suddenly become a reality as the spouses separate and figure out how to cover the costs of living alone, or alone with children, in Florida. During this time, it can be helpful to gather financial information so that the parties can determine how the assets and debts will be divided between them. 

Prenuptial agreements can avoid contention in property division

Prenuptial agreements were frowned upon for many years, but nowadays, many Florida couples see these contracts for what they are. The primary purpose of signing a marital agreement is to give both parties peace of mind in knowing that their respective interests will be protected in the event of a divorce. The contract can be drafted so that the assets that each party brought into the marriage will remain personal property, and what they accumulate and lost during the marriage will be equitably divided in the property division process of divorce.

2018 brings new child custody laws to Florida

The new year brings new laws to the Sunshine State. Among the pack are new laws regarding child custody agreements, now known as divorce and time-sharing agreements in Florida. The state has set new guidelines to help parents come to an agreement regarding time-sharing when the parents are unable to do so on their own.

The unexpected financial boon of divorce

When it comes to smart money moves, most people don't immediately think of ending their marriage. However, one unexpected benefit of divorce is that it can leave a person in a better financial position than before. Individuals in Florida may be wondering just how that can be, since traditional wisdom warns of the financial risk of separating from a spouse.
