A common property division fee to consider in Florida

The process of dividing marital wealth can be complicated for some Florida couples. Negotiations can go on for a lengthy period of time, and both parties are often overwhelmed by the number of decisions that must be made. One thing that spouses often overlook during property division is excess fees that can creep into the process. Being alert for those added expenses can make a difference in the ultimate bottom line.

Is divorce contagious among friends?

If you have ever had a friend get divorced, only to have another do the same, you might wonder if divorce is contagious. You would be right. Pew Research analyzed decades of research and discovered that the study participants were almost 75 percent more likely to divorce if a friend got divorced. In small companies, the divorce contagion was about 55 percent.

The links between no-fault divorce and property division

In most states, couples are not required to prove fault when seeking a divorce. They are able to make use of no-fault divorce laws that allow a marriage to end without one party making the argument that the other has done something to irreparably break the marriage. Many Florida residents strongly believe that no-fault divorce is a good thing for couples and for families. There are plenty of cases in which the marriage simply did not work out and there is no one to blame for the demise of the relationship. Some also feel that a no-fault divorce can make it easier to move through the property division process.

Business structure is important during high asset divorce

For Florida business owners, protecting business assets from loss during property division is a top priority when a marriage comes to an end. This is an area where preparation can have a huge impact, and where spouses who were savvy enough to create a prenup will have a far easier time than those who chose to forego a marital contract. The manner in which a business is structured can make a difference in how it is handled during a high asset divorce, and certain structures are more advantageous than others.

Divorce, property division among New Year's resolutions

Quite a few Florida residents are more than happy to pack away their holiday decorations and focus on the New Year. For some, divorce may play a big role in 2017. According to family law attorneys, the first few weeks of the New Year are a very busy time, with plenty of phone calls and emails rolling in. For those who are considering a divorce as part of their New Year's resolutions, taking a proactive approach to matters such as child custody and property division can pay handsomely.
