Parents in Florida who are separating can help their children build resilience that will make the adjustment less difficult. First, they should work to keep things consistent for the kids. This means maintaining a routine as much as possible so that there can be some stability for the overall larger adjustment of the divorce. Parents should try to agree on some basic, consistent rules between households, but even if they are unable to do so, they should not criticize the other parent's decisions in front of the child.
The economic and emotional challenges that follow most Florida divorces can be even more difficult for older couples. For starters, seniors have fewer potential working years left. Additionally, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act legislation that was signed into law in December 2017 has provisions beginning in 2019 that will impact many future divorces.
The various factors that come together to influence whether a Florida couple decides to divorce or stay together may seem primarily internal. It shouldn't matter what other couples are doing in their marriages. However, perhaps surprisingly, recent findings suggest otherwise.
Going through the adoption process is an exciting and sometimes stressful time. You are working to fill out all the paperwork and get your home prepared for a child. You are also making decisions about how you will raise your future child.
When Florida couples are considering a divorce, they may not realize that federal tax law changes could also impact the end of their marriage. At the end of 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was passed, best-known for its provisions on corporate and individual tax rates. However, there are also several provisions of the law that will affect how people deal with taxes during and after a divorce, especially after clauses related to alimony and spousal support go into effect at the beginning of 2019.
For Florida couples, the likelihood of divorce may be dependent, to an extent, on where they work. Research indicates that people who work with many others of the opposite sex might be more likely to divorce. A 2015 study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that men who lived in communities that were dominated by women were more likely to have shorter relationships.
