A New Year and A New You…When Is It Time to Throw In The Towel In A Marriage?

When is it time to get a divorce? The answer will vary from couple to couple as no two marriages are the same. However, there are some universal signs that can suggest that the marriage is over and it is time to file for divorce, which, in many states, including Florida, is called dissolution of marriage.

Here are some telltale signs to signal an end to marriage: ...

Equitable Distribution of Marital and Non-Marital Assets in Florida

Division of assets in a divorce, or as it is now termed, a dissolution of marriage, is often considered, after the fate of minor children, the most difficult and heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Material possessions, as well as property obtained after the marriage, referred to as marital assets, can hold a great deal of sentiment, as well as the feeling that hard-earned money went into obtaining the assets, and each party wants their fair share back. In Florida, the division of marital assets is done in an equitable, not equal, way. In other words, marital assets will be divided to...

What to Do if Your Spouse Won’t Sign the Divorce Papers

Divorce, or as it is now usually termed, dissolution of marriage, is not something most people want to have happen to their happy ever after marriage.

For the purpose of this blog, we will look at the state of Florida. Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce....

Florida – The No-Fault Divorce State

No-fault divorce is now a reality in all states except Illinois and South Dakota. For many years there needed to be a reason, such as adultery or extreme cruelty, for a couple to divorce. Not anymore. If you want a divorce and follow the proper state guidelines to obtain a divorce, you can, without the other person’s consent, obtain one.  For a detailed description of what a no-fault divorce means, the following quote is from the online Legal Dictionary | “(dissolution) in which neither spouse is required to prove “fault” or marital misconduct on the part of the other. To...

How Grey Divorce Differs from a Typical Divorce

Grey divorce, what is it? The term grey divorce emerged several years ago when research began to show that while the divorce rate in the United States was finally beginning to move below 50 percent, what was slowing this drop was the significant increase in divorces among those with grey hair, that is generally the over 65 years of age group. At present, statistics show couples divorcing after the age of 50 are responsible for one-quarter of divorces overall, and many of these couples are over the age of 65. What does research show are the main reasons for this...

Bankruptcy and Divorce – How Do They Affect Each Other?

Bankruptcy and divorce are both difficult decisions to consider, and considering them at the same time raises some concerns and questions. Financial concerns are often the focal point of divorce. Research has shown that how to divide marital property, both personal and real estate, has caused more stress and frayed nerves than other aspects of a divorce, with the exception of the ongoing care and nurturing of minor children. As many states, including Florida, use equitable distribution rather than equal distribution, the job of determining what is non-marital and what is marital becomes vital to the process of division of...
