New opportunities and challenges for same-sex couples

If you are a Florida resident in a same-sex relationship, you can access legal protections for your family and assets since the recognition of same-sex marriage by the Supreme Court of the United States. The legality of same-sex marriage opens up the ability to plan an estate transfer, create prenuptial agreements or advance parental rights. Prejudices remain throughout society, however, and institutional barriers could arise when adopting a child or trying to manage the medical care of an ailing partner.

Adoption and tax incentives

Adoption is a beautiful opportunity for families who want to grow while helping a child in need at the same time. If you are considering adoption, you already know this, but you might not know it can offer some financial benefits as well. There are certain tax incentives that are available for families who choose to adopt. The following information can help you better understand the tax incentives available as well as what eligibility requirements you must meet to qualify for them.

When child custody exchanges become a challenge in Florida

Although divorced couples may agree on child custody terms, emotions can still cause conflict regarding visitation rights. One factor that commonly leads to negative emotions is the lack of consistent financial support. Split custody time can also bring up unfavorable reactions when both parents have different opinions about child development as it relates to education and other values. Such animosities can come to a head when the actual custody exchange, or swap, takes place.
