On average, an estimated 4,000 divorces are filed every day in this country. Many of these marriages had lasted for years and included an unequal income ratio between the spouses. While states have set guidelines concerning how much alimony should be awarded, the majority, including Florida, do not have an online calculator to help spouses determine an equitable amount.
The prospect of filing for a divorce may conjure images of cold courtrooms, harried judges and warring spouses. However, recently there has been an effort to revise the approach that many couples take when choosing to end a potentially unhappy marriage. Collaborative law divorces may allow Florida residents an opportunity to untie the knot without becoming completely undone emotionally and financially.
If you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, do you assume that a traditional court proceeding is your only option? How will litigation affect your family both now and in the future?
The hard work that one invests into growing a successful enterprise may be one of the most satisfying experiences in life. If a divorce were to threaten the success of this business, the business owner could be left with little more than shattered dreams. There are steps that Florida residents can take to protect a business in the event of a high asset divorce.
Every family is unique in its own way, and no one solution will work for every problem. The same is true when it comes to a divorce. Though most Florida residents may imagine a court room setting for their impending divorce, a collaborative law approach may actually be a better fit.
