Understanding Florida Alimony

Alimony, or as it is often called, spousal support, is a monetary award given to one party in a divorce (dissolution of marriage). As each state has its own statutes spelling out exactly how to obtain a divorce in that state, alimony is one of the topics covered. Therefore it is important to check the statutes of the state where the couple resides to determine how alimony is handled in their state. For persons seeking a divorce in Florida, they can research Statute 61.08 to learn the details of alimony in Florida. Here follows a brief summary of the types...

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. In fact, it sometimes happens one of the parties in the divorce does not want the divorce and refuses to cooperate or sign a marital agreement. Each state has statutes determining how divorces are granted and what happens if one party is unwilling to agree to any terms of the divorce. 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....

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...

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...

Why Prenuptial Agreements Are a Great Idea

Get Professional Legal Help When Writing a Prenuptial Agreement Prenuptial agreements in Florida are becoming more and more popular as there are more second and beyond marriages where parties have been “burned” by a previous divorce. Everyone wants to think that their marriage will last until death do they part, but in the United States, the divorce rate hovers near 50% and higher for second and beyond marriages. There is also a surge in grey marriages among couples over 50 years, many who have stayed together until their children are raised. So, in many instances, a prenuptial agreement is a great...

How does Alimony Work? Do I still Pay Alimony With 50/50 Timesharing?

How does alimony work with timesharing The quick answer to do I pay alimony with 50/50 timesharing is yes if alimony is ordered. Occasionally, however, the requirements for alimony are not met, and alimony will not be awarded at the same time a 50/50 timesharing will be awarded. In legal fact, the awarding of timesharing and the awarding of alimony are two very different facets of Family Law. Each has its own set of laws., rules, requirements, and guidelines. Also, it is important to understand that each state will have its own, sometimes very different, Statutes regarding the arranging of parental...

DONT WAIT – If You’re Headed for a Divorce, Don’t Wait to Retain an Attorney

If you are headed for a divorce, it is in your best interest to retain an attorney before deciding on the finality of your decision. Even if you think you can “go it alone” in the divorce process, it is wise to at least seek professional legal advice to help you think through the process to make sure you understand how the process works. There are so many twists and turns in seeking a divorce with the outcome in your best interest that it is highly unlikely you will know the right twists and turns to take. While legal advice...

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...

Can I Get a Divorce in Florida Even if My Spouse Doesn’t Want One?

The quick answer to the question, can I get a divorce in Florida even if my spouse doesn’t want one? is yes. In Florida, a no-fault state, all that is necessary is that one party needs to plead irreconcilable differences. The other party doesn’t have to agree or sign anything for a divorce to be completed. That being said, the spouse wanting the divorce cannot just walk into court and get one without going through the legal process of obtaining a divorce. Guidelines are the same for both parties wanting a divorce and only one party wanting a divorce. If there...
