Ask questions and avoid trying to "win" during divorce

Many of the challenges that come with divorce are due to a misunderstanding of the legal, financial and emotional realities. Some people can be too focused on "winning" in a divorce. However, the better approach may be to ask the right questions to your Florida divorce professionals, like a lawyer and financial planner, to avoid making a mistake or not covering all bases. Being proactive and careful rather than treating it like a competition is a less aggressive and often more effective way of behaving in a divorce.

You can ensure your custody plan is good for the entire family

Child custody is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce, but some Florida parents may find they do not have to resort to litigation and complex court battles. Often a reasonable and workable solution is possible through discussions and a mutual commitment to the well-being of the children. Some parents are able to develop a parenting plan that will work for their family without the need for litigation.

Advice for financial advisors seeing clients through divorce

Financial advisors often work with families and couples to plan for their future. But what should a Florida financial advisor do when a couple he or she is advising decide to divorce? Not only is financial advising through a divorce a unique challenge, but dealing with both parties professionally can be difficult for an advisor. There are a few options professionals should consider in these situations.

Same-sex couples face legal property division challenges

Divorce for same-sex couples can be a particularly complicated issue. This is because many states, including Florida, only recognized these marriages starting in 2015. The starting date of a marriage is very important for establishing issues like property division and alimony, but many may find there are legal roadblocks in establishing the length of a same-sex marital relationship.

Surprising things that do not usually impact a divorce settlement

When a marriage ends, many people wrongly believe that painting their soon-to-be ex in a bad light will help them in a divorce settlement. For most Florida breakups, most of these accusations will have little impact on the property distribution in the divorce. Here are a few things that people are often surprised to learn do not impact divorce settlements in most cases.
