Don't wait to address divorce issues; get a separation agreement

Divorce is a rocky road, and often there is a significant span between the day the divorce is filed and the day the divorce is finalized. To get your divorced finalized in Florida, you have to meet certain requirements, which we discussed in a previous post.

Has social media been a factor in your divorce?

Social media can be a great way to communicate with family and friends, as well as network for business and express your ideas. For some people, though, there is a risk of overusing or inappropriately using platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and more and more people blame social media for their marital problems.

How can I lessen the burden on my kids during my divorce?

Different couples handle divorce in different ways. For many people, divorce is the most stressful if not devastating time in their lives, while for other spouses, putting the marriage behind them will be a great relief. For children, however, their parents' divorce is always a confusing and overwhelming time.

Knowing when divorce is the right decision

Couples who are having serious trouble with their marriage are sometimes able to work things out through counseling. Misunderstandings and confusion can take hold of a relationship in unexpected ways, and sometimes a counselor is able to help spouses carefully and calmly identify their differences and resolve them.

What you should know about Florida divorce law

To get divorced in Florida, you don't have to prove that your spouse is at fault, and your spouse doesn't have to agree to divorce or even participate in the process for the marriage to be legally ended. Florida law provides for no-fault divorce, and you can simply state that your marriage has undergone an irretrievable breakdown. If your spouse chooses not to participate, then it may be possible to get a default judgment in order to end the marriage.

Your divorce agreement can protect your child with special needs

All children have a difficult time when their parents divorce, but the separation of the parents may be particularly challenging if a child has special needs. In addition to their own emotional struggles, parents of children with emotional, physical or intellectual disabilities will have to make financial and legal adjustments to provide appropriate care and accommodations.

Reduce uncertainty with a legal separation agreement

A primary objective of the divorce process is to reach a final agreement on matters such as property division, spousal support, child support and parenting time. Until that agreement is reached, however, the period of separation may be fraught with uncertainty.

Taking legal steps to protect against domestic violence

When domestic violence is an issue in any Florida divorce or separation of partners, it is extremely important to take immediate legal action to address the situation. If you have been a victim of domestic abuse, then your primary concern should be safety. Contact police and get to a safe place as soon as you can. Once you're there, you can take additional legal steps to help ensure that the abuse never happens again.
