Helping your child adjust to two homes

According to, Florida ranks No. 7 in the nation for the highest rates of divorced families; about 13.2 percent of families in the state are divorced. The highest rate, in Nevada, is 14.6 percent. Divorce doesn't have to be messy and angry. A collaborative divorce is possible when both parties can put aside their differences, problem-solve and agree to a settlement and parenting plan.

Handling retirement investments during property division

When a Florida couple is going through divorce, there are a number of important financial decisions that must be made. Property division is among the most important aspects of any divorce, especially for spouses who are nearing retirement age. It is important to understand the proper way to handle retirement savings during divorce.

The often overlooked benefit of prenuptial agreements

When considering marriage, many Florida spouses are concerned about money management. However, very few take the time to actually sit down and hammer out a solid plan for how to combine and manage finances as a married couple. Prenuptial agreements offer a clear and well-defined path toward having those conversations. Unfortunately, few spouses recognize the benefits of negotiating a prenup.

Survey suggests that Millennials favor prenuptial agreements

When it comes to protecting assets from being ravaged during a divorce, it appears that Millennials in Florida and across the nation are taking a far more practical approach than previous generations. A recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers suggests that younger people are pursuing prenuptial agreements at a rate far ahead of their parents or grandparents. The survey included the input of more than 1,600 family law attorneys. 

Concerned about wasted marital assets in property division?

For many Florida spouses, the division of marital assets during divorce will have lasting financial ramifications. This is especially true for spouses who set aside their own career goals to stay home and raise a family, and to support the career path of their husband or wife. When it comes to property division, spouses who have been out of the workforce for a significant period of time must take care to negotiate a settlement that is fair and balanced. Unfortunately, there are cases in which doing so becomes a challenge.
