    What is Income for The Calculation of Child Support and Alimony?

    Child support and alimony are two of the most crucial decisions made during a dissolution of marriage (divorce). Child support can also be ordered if parents have never married each other or even lived together. Creating a child is the bottom line for child support. Whatever the circumstance for needing alimony or child support, there are considerations. The calculation of income supporting the awarding of alimony and child support is as follows and is applicable for each party: Salary: How much money per month/year before taxes and deductions does an individual make? A salary is a lump sum amount earned...

    Florida Procedures For Custody of a Minor Child by an Extended Family Member

    Unfortunately, there are many times when neither parent can care for their minor child. Reasons are numerous and can include death, ill health, mental problems resulting in abuse, drug addiction resulting in abuse and neglect, desertion, and incarnation. Sadly, the numbers of these children being cared for by a family member, most often grandparents, is in the millions.

Each state has its own set of guidelines and requirements for the legal ordering of custody for minor children, which can be found in...

    How to Live with Your Spouse While Going Through a Divorce

    Living with a spouse while going through a divorce is rarely an easy thing to do. To begin with, the very fact you and your spouse have deemed your marriage irrevocably broken means you no longer desire to be together permanently. This being said, it would not usually be the desire of a couple to continue to live together in the same home. In most instances, each party has his or her own residence while going through a divorce and most certainly after the divorce is finalized. Occasionally, however, some circumstances make it necessary for a couple to continue to...

    How to Prepare for When the Divorce is Over

    Divorce, or dissolution of marriage as it is termed in modern times, is never an easy or pleasant experience. In most cases, life, as it has been, will be disrupted and changed. Both parties, whether either wants the divorce or not, will be faced with a different way of doing things during the proceedings and even more so once the divorce is over. Fortunately, even in the best of circumstances, a divorce takes time to become final and thus allows a person time to prepare for what lies ahead. While no one wants to plan a future with so much...

    Does Divorce Have to be Filed in the Same State as Where the Marriage Took Place?

    No, a divorce does not have to be filed in the same state as where the marriage took place. In fact, you would file for a divorce in the state in which you are a resident. But be careful, states have different requirements for establishing and claiming residency for a divorce, and sometimes counties within a state have their own resident requirements as well. Some states have several ways to establish residency for divorce, but most states have a basic amount of time as the requirement. The proof of residency requirements can be for the person filing for divorce, or...

    What if My Spouse “Won’t Give Me a Divorce”?

    There was a time, and in a few states, it is still true, if a couple wanted to get a divorce there must be a proven reason such as infidelity, abuse, abandonment, or mental cruelty. In Florida, for example, this is no longer the way divorce works. Now, if only one person in the couple wants a divorce, or dissolution of marriage as it is now termed, the court will grant their request. Florida is what is termed a “no-fault state.” While this sounds simplistic, it does not mean a person can just file for a divorce and get one without...

While it is true some good relationships go bad over time, most poor relationships could have been avoided if “red flags” had been taken seriously.

    Why Hiring an Attorney Before Your Case is Filed is a Good Idea?

    Probably the reason most people wait until the last minute to hire an attorney is the cost. Many attorneys charge by the quarter-hour, and this can add up fast when having a conversation regarding a case not yet underway. While this is true, there are reasons it is a good idea to hire an attorney before your case is filed. Here are some of them: • An attorney can help you sort out the details of a case required to handle your concern such as a divorce, bankruptcy, or child support. • As detailed financial documents will be required, an attorney can...

    How to keep your kids out of court (protecting children from litigating a divorce)

    Divorce, or dissolution of marriage as it is now called in most states, is sometimes even harder on children that it is on the adults. Especially minor children are affected as they have no say in what will happen to their future life and in fact, will be made to go along with the final judgment signed by a judge. Not only will they, in many cases, need to move to a new home but will now have two homes to split their overnights. How stressful it must be to have to bounce from one house to the other on...

    Marriage Counseling … Does it Work?

    Does marriage counseling work? To be blunt, sometimes “yes” and sometimes “no.” What are some of the considerations that are more likely to lead to success rather than failure? The following are food for thought: Probably first and foremost, for success of any kind, both parties must recognize the need for marriage counseling and be willing to give it at least a try. Have an open mind. That is trying not to go to counseling thinking you are all right and the other person in all wrong. It is essential to be willing to at least listen to, not just...
