Scenarios in which it may be necessary to modify a parenting plan

There are a multitude of scenarios in which you may experience a change in circumstances in life. Perhaps you wish to move closer to family or need to relocate due to a change in employment; in some cases, a similar decision could be as simple as finding a new place to live.

Postnuptial agreements for a changing marriage

You may be noticing your friends and acquaintances going through tough times in their marriages. Perhaps you have consoled more than one family member during a difficult divorce, and you are beginning to realize that few marriages are impenetrable. You may regret now that you did not follow that good advice about signing a prenuptial agreement.

The answers you deserve regarding visitation

When faced with the probability of a divorce, many Florida parents likely have serious concerns about how often they will be able to see their children. Kids benefit when they have regular contact with both parents after divorce, and your visitation schedule should reflect this. The ultimate goal of any visitation or custody agreement should be in the best interests of your kids.

Don't overlook these assets in a high net worth divorce

Once you decided to seek an end to your marriage in court, you knew you'd likely encounter various challenges throughout the process. Beyond the roller coaster of emotions your friends told you to expect, you also worried there would be difficulty resolving certain issues, especially those concerning property division. Deep down, your hope was to swiftly and amicably negotiate the terms of your settlement so you could put the past behind you and get on with your life; however, you feared it might not be so easy.

Getting off the roller coaster and on the right track in divorce

No one can deny the fact that divorce is an emotionally trying time for those involved. From the parents to the children to extended family, the end of a marriage takes its toll on everyone. Dealing with the emotional roller coaster that can occur at this time is absolutely essential, but you and your soon-to-be former spouse may want to consider how emotions can affect the divorce process.

Equitable distribution doesn't always mean equal distribution

If you are facing divorce, you likely have various concerns about what your life will look like after the process is complete. You also know that your post-divorce future hinges on the terms of your final divorce settlement, namely your property division order. It is useful to understand more about how Florida courts address marital property during a divorce. 

Are you sure your prenuptial agreement is valid?

On your wedding day in Florida, you may have felt excited and a bit nervous as you took the first steps in a new relationship that you were hoping would last your lifetime. Perhaps, you also felt quite confident that you had secured your assets and identified separate ownership of your business or savings account funds by signing a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. Those times may now be distant memories as 10 or more years have gone by and times (as well as your relationship) have changed.

Who gets the ornaments? Understanding equitable distribution

If it looks like a breakup with your spouse is on the horizon, you will likely start to think of how to separate your life from your spouse and move on. It is tempting to think that you can split everything half and half, right down the middle, but soon you will realize that the half and half notion is tricky, if not impossible. Besides, some things you own are yours alone -- do you have to share them?

Separation: an option for when you are not ready to divorce

There are Florida couples who find that their romantic relationship is over, yet seeking a divorce is not the right choice at that time. In this situation, simply moving out and living apart may not be the right option, even when living together is not feasible. If you find yourself in a place where you wish to end your marriage but are not yet ready to move forward with a divorce, then a legal separation could be right for you.

Avoiding potentially detrimental decisions in high-asset divorces

There are countless reasons that can lead a couple to consider parting ways. Perhaps you and your spouse have reached an impasse, and the decision to divorce has moved from a discussion to a reality. Along with the emotional stress that can accompany such a difficult decision, the financial side of divorce can be intimidating and complex, especially for the wealthy.
