Steps for filing for a divorce

Couples in Florida who want to get a divorce may be uncertain about how to get the process started. While initiating a divorce can be a relatively simple process, filers should keep in mind that legally separating oneself from a spouse is a process that can be complicated.

Several factors can indicate greater likelihood of divorce

There are a number of factors that can indicate whether a Florida couple is headed for divorce. Every couple is deals with their own situations, so statistical indications may have little value for any individual marriage. However, these risk factors can help highlight situations that may lead to the end of a marriage.

Certain factors may help push couples toward divorce

Couples in Florida and across the United States may wonder if there are certain factors that make them more likely to decide to end their marriages. Celebrity divorces may make headlines, but 22 percent of couples overall see some sort of disruption of their marriage within the first five years.

Situations that might result in a divorce

The decision to get a divorce may be a difficult one for some people in Florida. While it may appear to outsiders that a line has been crossed in a marriage, it may be more difficult for a person in that marriage to make the determination to end it. However, there are circumstances in which a person might decide divorce is necessary, and in fact, their only option.

Study looks at demographics of wage garnishment

A study released Sept. 27 from the ADP Research Institute suggests that more men than women in Florida may be facing a wage garnishment. The study found that more than 70 percent of people whose wages were garnished nationwide were men, and most of those garnishments were for nonpayment of child support.

Studies look at factors that affect divorce rates

People in Florida may be more likely to divorce if they married in their late teens, early twenties or after the age of 32. They may also be more prone to divorcing if they did not finish college or if they spent more than $20,000 on their wedding. These are among the findings of a number of nationwide studies that looked at factors in divorce.

Tips to avoid financial mistakes during divorce

When Florida couples get a divorce, one party may pay alimony and child support to the other. They also need to divide property. However, there are a number of common financial mistakes people make at this time. For example, a recipient of alimony and child support might want to consider getting an insurance policy on the ex-spouse. This will provide protection against the loss of that income in the event of the payer's death.
