Protecting your child during a complicated divorce

When parents with significant means choose to divorce, this holds the potential to cause great strain on the children in the marriage. Often, this is because high-asset divorces are rarely simple, meaning that the matter may drag out much longer than it might between two parents with fewer issues to resolve in the divorce process. Depending on the nature of the divorce, parents may not realize that they are focusing on dividing up their considerable assets in a favorable way rather than what is truly best for their children.

Over the last several decades, courts have begun to expand support for postnuptial agreements, strengthening the legal protections a couple may enjoy if their circumstances change significantly after they are already married.

Which factors determine spousal support in Florida?

Spousal support may vary significantly from case to case, depending on the specifics of each spouse's circumstances, both individually and as a couple. In Florida, courts may consider a variety of factors before awarding support, beyond considering other aspects of divorce, such as property division or child support. Each of these are interconnected, and increases or decreases in one area often inversely affect the others.

Postnuptial agreements for a changing marriage

You may be noticing your friends and acquaintances going through tough times in their marriages.

You may regret now that you did not follow that good advice about signing a prenuptial agreement.

Disadvantages to Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorce can provide much needed relief to those who need to end a marriage but hope to minimize the complications of the process and get the matter resolved as quickly as possible. While many couples do technically qualify for uncontested divorce, it does not always serve the couples' greater needs beyond bringing and end to their legal relationship.
