Parenting coordinators can play a role in collaborative law

For many Florida parents, moving through the details of a divorce does not have to resemble a battle. Plenty of couples prefer to take a collaborative law approach, which allows them the opportunity to work through their divorce outside of a courtroom. For those who share children, a parenting coordinator can assist in working through various child custody options and can be a valuable addition to one's divorce team.

Can you reach an alimony settlement outside of court?

Your spouse may agree that you made the sacrifices that supported his or her career success and may have expressed gratitude over this fact. However, now that you are divorcing, sharing that significantly higher earning potential with you in the form of alimony may have lessened the appreciation of your contribution. Understanding the ins and outs of spousal support may help both of you to approach the table with reasonable expectations so you can come to an agreement without a court battle.

Prenuptial agreements critical for older spouses

Finding love again after the age of 50 is a wonderful thing. For those in Florida who are fortunate enough to find their perfect counterpart later in life, taking the plunge to get married is exciting. In preparation for a late-life marriage, couples should consider drafting prenuptial agreements. Doing so can ease the minds of other relatives who are concerned about what the future might hold.

Deciding what to do with property division proceeds

Once the dust has settled and the ink has dried, many Florida spouses will emerge from a divorce with a nice nest egg. The wealth gained from the property division process can and should be used to create financial security for the years to come. That is why it is so important for divorcing spouses to have a comprehensive budget for the years that follow a divorce.

Can a divorce financial planner improve property division?

For many Florida residents who are going through a divorce, the sheer number of financial decisions that must be made is overwhelming. Making matters worse, most people know that the outcome of those decisions will have a lasting impact on their personal bottom line for many years to come. One way to handle property division is to employ the services of a financial professional who is skilled at managing all of the money matters related to divorce.

Collaborative law can help parents with timing issues

The process of bringing a marriage to a close requires a great of individual decisions. For Florida spouses who share children, this process is even more complicated. Most parents strive to make divorce decisions that are in the best interests of their children, but reaching that shared goal can be something of a challenge. Collaborative law offers a means through which both sides can work together to maintain stability for their kids.
