What can I include in my prenuptial agreement?

You may understand the benefit and positive aspects to drafting a prenuptial agreement, but you may not understand how this can benefit you specifically. These legal agreements are not only for wealthy Florida couples and those with valuable assets, they can also prove beneficial for couples of all income levels. A prenuptial agreement would provide you with a measure of security for the future.

Splitting up siblings in a divorce is often a bad idea

Determining child custody is often one of the most difficult decisions that divorcing people have to make. When there's one child, they may fight over who gets primary custody of that child. Unfortunately, when there is more than one child, some parents opt to separate the children and each take one or more of them.

This is particularly true for women who have not been in the full-time workforce for a long time and those who left the responsibility of the family finances to their husbands.

What do you do if you can't appear for a scheduled hearing?

Feeling blue about your retirement when facing a gray divorce?

Divorce is difficult, no matter how old you are, the ages of your children or where you are in life. Many older Florida couples can testify to this as divorce becomes more common for people over the age of 50. This trend of an increase in divorce filings for older couples goes by the term gray divorce, and it can have a significant financial impact on both parties.
