The pitfalls of do-it-yourself property division

Who doesn't want to save money? For many Florida residents, the prospect of divorce is closely associated with concerns about financial losses. Some couples choose to take a do-it-yourself approach to their divorce, rather than handing over their hard-earned money to a family law attorney. While this is an understandable concern, going it alone can mean hefty financial losses, especially when it comes to issues related to property division.

Prenuptial agreements: Some include more than financial agreement

Some Florida couples decide to make decisions about their marriages before they begin. Some may choose to legally bind the decisions in a prenuptial agreement. Not only do prenuptial agreements allow couples to make financial decisions before a marriage begins, but some agreements also include stipulations about sexual and romantic decisions, family boundaries, and financial responsibility decisions while married.

Republican tax plan could cut alimony deduction

Many Florida spouses are carefully watching the progression of the Republican tax plan. There are numerous controversial aspects of the plan, but one that has sparked debate involves the elimination of the alimony tax deduction. That could change the financial landscape for hundreds of thousands of Americans, which is an unwelcome change in many households.

Proposed tax plan could reduce alimony deduction

As Florida residents debate the recently proposed GOP tax cuts, they may want to take a close look at the provisions within the proposal. One of the ways that Republican lawmakers plan to pay for tax cuts is by eliminating the tax deduction for alimony payments. That can make a big difference in the bottom line for many Americans.

Collaborative law can be a great fit for Florida families

Many Florida couples are looking for a non-traditional path to ending their marriage. Long gone are the days when divorce followed a very narrow path. Today's couples have many choices when it comes to processing the end of a marriage, including collaborative law. This approach harnesses the best intentions of both parties toward seeking a mutually beneficial settlement.
