Johnny Depp high asset divorce saga continues

Florida readers may recall media coverage of the divorce between actor Johnny Depp and his wife, Amber Heard. The end of their brief marriage made headlines after Heard accused the actor of domestic violence. They settled their high asset divorce case relatively quickly, with part of the agreement involving Heard pledging to donate the majority of her financial settlement to various charities. However, Heard recently filed new documents in the case, alleging that Depp has yet to fulfill his part of the bargain.

Elements to include in a parenting plan

There are many decisions to make when getting divorced. If you have children, one of the most important things you have to decide is how to share the time with your kids. Hopefully, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can consider what is best for the child. Creating a time-sharing schedule is just one aspect of a parenting plan. Here are some of the things you might want to include in your own parenting plan:

Consider professional assistance with property division decisions

Dividing marital wealth is among the most important aspects of any Florida divorce. For many spouses, it is also the most stressful part of the divorce process. Fortunately, there is help available when working through various property division decisions. A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst can help spouses make the best possible decisions when it comes to their unique set of divorce needs.

Consider putting life insurance in property division negotiations

For most Florida couples, the division of marital wealth is a top priority during a divorce. It is important to understand, however, that there are financial issues that range far beyond the division of existing assets. Life insurance is a prime example and is a matter that many spouses should carefully consider during property division negotiations.

Choosing the right battles during property division

During the course of a Florida divorce, many spouses have a hard time making rational decisions. The end of a marriage is an emotionally turbulent time, and very few people can move through the entire process without encountering at least a few roadblocks. Engaging in heated property division arguments is a prime example, and is a very common occurrence for divorcing spouses.

Prenuptial agreements on the rise among millennials

A recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers suggests that younger couples are taking a proactive approach to financial planning prior to marriage. Among the family law attorneys surveyed, 62 percent report a rise in the use of prenuptial agreements among younger couples. That change may indicate that young people in Florida and elsewhere are approaching marriage in a different manner than their parents or grandparents.
