Remembering debt while dividing property

When a Florida couple goes through a divorce, all of their assets are scrutinized during the property division process. Many spouses forget that their debts also play a role within that process, and that debt is also divided at the end of a marriage. Understanding how various forms of debt will be handled can help spouses make informed decisions when dividing property.

Is it possible to predict the chance of divorce?

Married couples in Florida and elsewhere tend to go through a range of ups and downs over the years, which is perfectly normal. During times of trouble, many spouses worry about whether their union is a healthy one, or if their marriage may be headed for divorce. While it is impossible to know for certain whether a couple will make it through a rough patch and preserve their marriage, one social scientist believes that he has determined two patterns of behavior that often precede the decision to end a marriage.

Divorce from an abusive spouse allows a fresh, safe start

A divorce can be one of the most emotional experiences anyone can have to endure. However, staying in a marriage in which domestic violence is present is much worse for a spouse than divorce. In the last five years, domestic violence issues have increased throughout Florida and elsewhere in the country.

Major life changes can lead to divorce for Florida residents

Couples choose to divorce for a number of reasons. Some of the reasons for divorce commonly cited by Florida spouses include infidelity, financial woes and irreconcilable differences. For others, the effects of major life changes, such as child births, job changes and health issues, are the events that lead to divorce.

Project to help co-parents work together after divorce

When parents divorce, the most contentious issues are usually child-related. Sometimes, Florida parents are unable to agree, leaving their children in the middle. Fortunately, Florida State University researchers have acquired a grant in the amount of $250,000 to develop an online toolkit for co-parenting after divorce. 

Harold Hamm files appeal for divorce decision

Sometimes, when a divorce has already been finalized, ex-spouses may wish to file an appeal. This is true for one case in which a well-known oil company owner appealed his previous divorce ruling. Many Florida blog readers may be aware that Harold Hamm's ex-wife was previously awarded almost $1 billion in their divorce.

Florida couples should not be guided by fear during divorce

There is little doubt that divorce can be a springboard for numerous emotions. From anger to sadness to relief, divorcing couples in Florida experience plenty of reactions to the process. However, fear is one of those sensations that can get in the way of making wise choices during a divorce.

Destruction of Florida divorce papers can be a tricky decision

Couples that are going through a divorce in Florida may find the experience emotionally exhausting. Consequently, when it's finished, they tend to stash away their divorce papers and never look upon them again if they can help it. However, what they shouldn't do is give in to the temptation to shred the documents any time in the near future.

Divorce can be difficult for children, especially on holidays

Divorce can be difficult for everyone involved, but it can be even more difficult for the children of the separating individuals. Divorce, if not handled properly, can seriously dampen the mood of the holiday season for the children involved. However, if Florida couples take certain precautions during the holiday season, it could make the separation a little easier for their children.
