Dividing assets in divorce, including the family home

The family home can be one of the more challenging items to handle as part of a divorce settlement in Florida. Unlike traditional financial assets like a retirement fund or bank account, it cannot be easily divided into two parts. Furthermore, people may have strong sentimental ties to the home even as it represents one of the largest single assets belonging to the divorcing couple.

Is Divorce Mediation Required?

When beginning the divorce process, people often worry about going to trial. They may picture themselves in a courtroom, in front of a judge, fighting to achieve a fair outcome. In reality, the majority of divorces are resolved without the need for trial. In fact, Florida requires that divorcing couples attempt to resolve the matter through mediation first. This is a step that cannot be skipped, and often this is for the best, as even the worst decisions that a divorcing couple can make together may be preferable to what a judge may order.

Divorced parents should come up with a holiday plan

Florida parents who are divorced or separated may be concerned about how to go about setting up a plan for the holidays. In order to alleviate stress, parents should open the lines of communication and cooperate with each other to make the holidays enjoyable for their children.

Overcoming the challenges of parenting after a divorce

Florida individuals have an obligation to maintain relationships with their children even if they don't have ones with their spouses. In some cases, an inability to communicate during a marriage will carry over as it relates to raising children after it ends. If people don't have a good relationship with each other, they can still have strong relationships with their children. In fact, how a child turns out generally depends mostly on how he or she gets along with each parent.
