New tax laws motivatee some couples to finalize divorce in 2018

Most people hope to finalize their divorces as quickly as possible, but in 2018, there may be some additional incentives to speed up a divorce. Changes to the tax code could impact multiple aspects of a Florida divorce, including alimony payments, property taxes for the marital home and deductions related to children. In some cases, this could impact pre- and post-nuptial agreements that were drafted under the pretenses of previous tax laws.

The value and importance of financial disclosure in divorce

For most Florida couples, the end of a marriage will signal the beginning of significant financial adjustments in their lives. You understand the significance of the financial ramifications of a divorce, and you are aware of the critical importance of having a fair and equitable property division agreement and final order.

Florida grants more 50/50 child custody than other states

Disputes over the amount of time one spends with his or her children following divorce can be a challenge in any state, but certain places make it easier than others. According to a recent study from child custody scheduling software Custody X Change, fathers in Florida are more likely to get 50/50 custody than those living in other states. Several other states were also cited. Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware and several others also have a tendency to give fathers 50 percent custody.

Divorce can be a success of personal growth

Individuals considering ending a marriage may be reluctant to do so because of fear of failure. However, some experts say that divorce can be an indicator of personal success. Whether a person has made a decision to stop suffering or whether his or her personal growth leads them to move on, ending a marriage no longer has to bear the sting of failure. Individuals in Florida may find this a refreshing perspective when contemplating the end of their marriages. 

Child custody plan may take breastfeeding into equation

In the early years of a child's life, many mothers choose to breastfeed instead of offering formula to the child. In the event of a divorce, joint child custody may affect a woman's ability to breastfeed the child. Florida parents may be wondering, does my child's breastfeeding affect how child custody will be decided? 

Property division takes precedence in gray divorce

Older couples are choosing to end their marriages in increasing numbers. Some individuals with knowledge in this area say that it is a rapidly growing age group for divorces. Florida couples over the age of 50 who are considering divorce should know that they are not alone. Older individuals seeking divorce typically have unique needs, and careful property division is one of them.
