Candance Parker, WNBA star, settles alimony with one-time payment

Those who play professional sports are likely accustomed to having their private lives exposed to media scrutiny. As such, when these individuals seek a divorce, the settlement details, including any alimony agreements, often become public knowledge. Florida fans who follow basketball news may have been surprised when WNBA star Candace Parker was ordered to make alimony payments to her former spouse.

If these occur in marriage; prepare for property division talks

There is no disputing that relationships are hard work, especially as time goes by. According to one researcher, if certain behaviors are occurring in a marriage, they may indicate that property division discussions will be occurring in the not too distant future. Some Florida residents who are dealing with any of these issues may already be considering how to end their marriages.

If not carefully crafted, prenuptial agreements may not be valid

Regardless of their level of wealth, any couple intending to marry may benefit from pre-marital contracts that are meant to safeguard loved ones or those assets not intended for division in the event of a divorce. When couples decide that prenuptial agreements may play an important role in protecting certain assets, it is helpful to ensure that these documents are correctly written. Florida residents may be surprised to learn that there are times when divorce courts may not enforce an existing agreement.

Pit bulls: when lawyers want to fight

There are lawyers and then there are lawyers. Which one is right for you depends on what type of legal issue you face and how you want to go about facing it. If you need an aggressive criminal defense attorney, hire a pit bull. But if you want a low-stress, amicable Florida divorce, hiring a golden retriever is a far better choice.

Property division in divorce also pertains to marital debts

Though the divorce rate has declined slightly in recent years, there may still be a 40 to 50 percent chance that a marriage will end in divorce. When it comes to property division, how assets are divided often depends on the state where one lives. Florida is an equitable distribution state and that also pertains to how debts will be addressed.
