Potential property division issues for spouses to consider

Dividing marital wealth can seem like a straightforward process, but that is not always the case. Pointedly, there are issues that can arise long after the paperwork has been signed, and an inability to reach an agreement on those matters can bring former spouses back to a Florida court. An example is found in the area of real estate and property division. While not a common concern, one couple's story serves as an illustration of how things can turn into a problem years down the road.

3 ways to minimize stress in a divorce

A substantial portion of marriages end in divorce, but despite its frequency, it remains one of the most stressful situations a person might encounter. Nobody wants to separate from the person they expected to spend the rest of their life with, and it is inevitable that some negative feelings will emerge throughout the process. Accepting this does not mean you must resign yourself to melancholy, though. There are several effective ways to minimize the stress you and your partner encounter throughout the process of a divorce.

Can political disagreement lead to divorce, property division?

Even healthy Florida marriages go through periods of difficulty. In some cases, tensions arise over the shared responsibilities of household management, such as raising kids and paying the bills. For other families, however, disagreement centers on more ideological matters, including politics. According to a recent survey, discord over the new Trump administration may be leading to an increase in divorce and subsequent property division.

Quiet sale of art in the early stages of this high asset divorce

Many Florida readers are aware of the divorce between billionaire Harry Macklowe and his wife of 58 years. Their story has gained a great deal of media coverage, both due to the length of their marriage and the odd twists and turns in their high asset divorce. Now, the dissolution of their marriage is once again front page news after claims that Macklowe is quietly selling high dollar art in an effort to keep assets away from his wife.

Separation could complicate property division for seniors

Much has been written about the uptick in the number of older Americans who are seeking divorce. For many, that decision comes after years of ambivalence about the marriage. For some Florida couples, the transition from married to single takes a long time to complete. A lengthy separation is not unusual among couples in their 50s and beyond. It is important to understand, however, the impact that a separation could have on property division and other divorce matters.
