    What is a Post-Judgment Modification in Florida

    To modify, according to dictionaylaw.com, is “a change in an existing court order or judgment made necessary by a change in circumstances since the order or judgment was made or to cure an error.” In Florida, post-judgment modifications can be made to alimony, child support, parental timesharing, and the parenting plan. No changes to an existing order or judgment can be made by the parties themselves but only through mediation or by a judge. In all cases where a post-judgment is requested, there must be proof of material, substantial, and unanticipated (before final judgment) change. Different modification needs can determine...

    How forensic accountants save you money in divorce

    Before exploring how a forensic accountant can save you money in a divorce, it is necessary to understand what a forensic account’s job title entails and why someone qualified as a forensic accountant can testify in court on your behalf even though they have not been an eye witness to your case. A forensic account is a person who is educated, trained, and licensed to investigate the financial and business affairs of an individual both on a personal level and when a business is involved with a divorce case. Accounting, auditing, and financial document analysis are important parts of the...

    Domestic Partnership vs Marriage in Florida

    What you need to know about same sex marriages and domestic partnership in Florida When explaining the difference between domestic partnership and marriage, it is necessary to look at the definition of each type of relationship. According to Wikipedia, the online dictionary: “A domestic partnership is an interpersonal relationship between two individuals who live together and share in common domestic life but are not married (to each other or anyone else).” Marriage, also called matrimony or wedlock is a culturally and often legally recognized union between people called spouses. It establishes rights and obligations between them, as well as between them and their...

    The Presumption of 50/50 timesharing

    Is it going to actually pass as a law? The presumption of 50/50 timesharing is a hot topic concern in the halls of justice in Florida. For several years the family law community has been debating whether to take the 50/50 timesharing issue from letting a judge determine its usage for the care and nurturing of minor children to making this presumption a law. Several attempts have been made to have appropriate bills passed and signed, but to date, this has not happened. However, at present, there is a strong bill that is making its way through the Florida law-making process,...

    Talking Parents vs. Our Family Wizard

    All About The “Talking Parents” Communication Website And How It Compares To Florida’s Our Family Wizard Site Raising children with care and nurturing has never been an easy task, no matter how many years you go back in history. The responsibility of seeing to the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual development of a human child from birth to age l8 and sometimes further can, at times, seem overwhelming. And, when a family is broken for reasons of divorce (dissolution of marriage) or separation, in the case of parenting outside of marriage, any minor child born or adopted by the couple will...

    There is No Favoritism in The Law

    For many years it seemed that family courts were biased in favor of one party or the other in a divorce, especially when minor children were involved. As time has gone on, however, family courts have changed in the way they administer justice until there is now no favoritism in a judge's decision regarding divorce issues such as alimony, child support, and who will care for and nurture the minor children. (A child is considered a minor from infancy to age l8 and beyond if the child is unable to support themselves due to severe mental or physical disability.). Here...

    Should We Tell the Kids We Are Getting Divorced?

    The question, should we tell the kids we are getting a divorce? has an answer in the affirmative, but that answer will have a lot of considerations attached to it. Let’s look at the how, when, what, and even where you can tell your kids you are getting a divorce. The first consideration is the age of the children in question. Usually, the younger the child, the less information will be needed, although explaining what a divorce is may be necessary. School-age children will likely have friends whose parents are divorced, so they will be familiar with such issues as timesharing...

    Is a Yearly Bonus Considered in Child Support or Alimony

    A bonus is an amount of money paid to an employee over and above their regular paycheck. In most instances, a bonus occurs once a year, often at the end of the year though there are times when a bonus is paid more often. Sometimes the bonus is paid simply because the employee has completed a given amount of time with their organization, and a bonus is given to all workers, the amount depending on how long they have been employed. Other times a bonus is given as an incentive for work done or a goal reached. This second type...
