Collaborative law can ease divorce process for all parties

The decision to end a marriage is usually only made after serious consideration. The process to obtain that divorce is often an emotionally and financially draining experience for the entire family. Florida residents who have decided that a divorce is the best choice for their current circumstances may seek more information on how a collaborative law approach could ease the process.

Pre- and postnuptial agreements can be asset in property division

When one hears the term pre- or post nuptial agreement, he or she may assume that these documents are intended as a safeguard for the wealthy. In reality, these tools can be an asset to anyone when it comes to the property division aspect of an impending divorce. Even those Florida residents who do not believe they own enough assets can benefit from implementing these agreements -- whether or not they ever seek a divorce.

Here's how prenuptial agreements can actually strengthen bonds

Most Florida couples know that financial matters are a leading cause of marital turmoil and could even lead to divorce. For those who have yet to tie the knot, deciding how to navigate financial disparities can be a challenge. When the right approach is taken, talks about prenuptial agreements can actually serve to strengthen a couple's bond. 

Prenuptial agreements can help preserve family wealth

An individual who wishes to protect his or her own assets and family wealth has a choice to make as a marriage approaches. Prenuptial agreements are one tool that many people choose to use to help them protect income and inheritance, as well as set some nonfinancial guidelines. In Florida, some wealthy families choose to make the prenuptial agreement part of a family estate plan so all children participate, and also to avoid the awkwardness that can sometimes come with bringing up a conversation about prenups with an adult child's future spouse. 

Losing the alimony deduction will be a financial hit for many

Many Florida spouses have grown used to the tax deduction that comes with paying spousal support. It can certainly take some of the sting out of those payments and is a welcome relief at tax time. The newly signed tax reform package, however, eliminates the alimony tax deduction. That will change the financial landscape for many divorced spouses and could also lead some married folks to seriously consider filing for divorce.
