Sealing records within a Florida divorce

In recent months, a number of celebrities and other high profile couples have taken steps to have their divorce records sealed from public view. This means that the media has had no access to those records, which has kept details of the high profile divorce case out of the news. While not everyone in Florida has a public persona to protect, many spouses would like to have their own divorce kept out of the public record, and wonder if that is an option available to non-celebrity couples.

When dividing property, avoid the urge to rush

One of the most challenging aspects of any divorce is the property division process. A great many spouses in Florida and across the nation hate negotiations, whether they are buying a car, negotiating a business deal or working out the details of their divorce. That said, dividing property is crucial to one's future financial stability, and it is a process that should never be rushed.

Wives may be more likely to file for divorce

A recent study took a look at marriage and divorce among heterosexual Americans and found that when a marriage is faltering, wives are more likely to file for divorce than husbands. Researchers looked at data collected from more than 2,000 adults who were either married or in committed relationships. While it appears that men and women end dating relationships at approximately the same rate, women seek divorce at significantly higher rates than men. This may come as a surprise to many in Florida.

Your attorney wants to focus on your divorce issues

The process of ending a marriage is often both stressful and complicated. To some degree, tension and anxiety is normal during this phase of one's life and cannot be avoided. However, there are steps that Florida spouses can take to make the divorce process easier to manage. At the top of that list is taking an active role in keeping one's divorce on track and allowing one's attorney to focus on the divorce issues at play, rather than dealing with lesser tasks.
