Parenting after a divorce

Going through a divorce in Florida may signify freedom in terms of spousal commitments, but when children are involved, the relationship with one's ex-spouse may be a lifelong concern. It can be difficult for children to face conflict between their parents as they celebrate their birthdays and other special occasions, but parents may be able to help their children if they can get past their own interpersonal difficulties. The type of co-parenting relationship two divorced parties cultivate can have a huge impact on the emotional health of their children.

Sherri Shepherd ordered to pay child support for surrogate son

Florida fans of TV personality Sherri Shepherd may be interested to learn that a Pennsylvania court has ruled that comic actor must pay her ex-husband alimony and child support. The decision is the latest chapter in a contentious maternity suit involving the couple's 1-year-old son, who was conceived with the help of a surrogate mother.

Why Florida residents can benefit from a prenup

Prior to getting married, it may be worthwhile for a couple to consider creating and signing a prenuptial agreement. Although the conversation may be difficult to have, it can protect assets or act as an estate planning tool even if the couple doesn't have or plan on having children or grandchildren. For those who may be bringing a higher percentage of assets into a marriage, it may be useful in protecting those assets.

How does divorce factor into the probate process?

Grey divorce, or dissolving a marriage after the age of 50, is becoming a common thing now in our country. It's a fact we've brought up before on our blog, as some of our more frequent readers already know. But it's also one we feel our readers should be aware of. That's because grey divorce can significantly complicate situations, especially when you consider its affect on a couple's estate.

What is the state of permanent alimony legislation in Florida?

When HB 943 was filed back in February, some wondered if it would finally be the push Florida needed to reform our state's alimony laws and do away with permanent spousal maintenance. The problem with this legal obligation, some argued, was that it didn't give alimony receivers enough of an incentive to return to work, thereby financially crippling payers for the rest of their lives. It was a plight some hoped state legislatures would take to heart and correct.

Florida divorce questions right to alimony after an annulment

There is a certain level of privacy that is to be expected when it comes to divorce, which is why when it comes to other people's marital troubles, there are a lot of people here in Florida who would rather not know what's going on. There are times though when you may want to read about someone else's divorce, especially when a question is raised that might apply to your situation.

Does Florida law allow common law marriages?

If you've ever lived in another state or are interested in the legal system, then you know that laws vary from state to state. What is allowed or not allowed in one state may be a completely different story in another state. In areas like family law, this can create problems because it can result in misunderstandings or even complex legal issues that may require the help of a skilled lawyer later on.

Is achieving a blended family easy or difficult?

What do you think of when you hear the term blended family? If you're like a lot of our Florida readers, you probably think of a divorce and a remarriage -- perhaps children from the other marriage becoming step siblings -- all working together to create a new family unit. But is this process easy or difficult to achieve? It's a question we wanted to look at in this week's blog post.
