This app could reduce child support struggles

Many Florida parents believe that once their divorce has been made final, the days of arguing with their former spouse will be behind them. When a couple shares children, however, there will be plenty of opportunities to get under each other's skin, even after the ink has dried and the dust has settled. Struggles over child support are just one example of the ways that divorced parents continue to argue, but there is an app on the market that promises to help reduce those tensions for all involved.

How family courts approach domestic violence and custody

Many Florida parents have been subjected to acts of violence at the hands of their partners. For those who get the courage to leave an abusive relationship, the next step is often a child custody battle with their former abuser. Family courts face a difficult role in these cases, and there is no standard approach to handling custody cases that also involve claims of domestic violence.

The role of documentation in drafting a prenuptial agreement

As a Florida couple prepares to wed, there are a number of things that must be accomplished. Wedding planning often defines the months leading up to a couple's big day, but it is equally important to handle financial planning prior to tying the knot. A prenuptial agreement is not only an essential protective measure, but it also provides an opportunity for a couple to learn how their future spouse approaches money management.

Avoid being taken for a ride during property division

The process of dividing marital wealth in a divorce will be different for each Florida couple. This is due to the fact that no two couples will share the exact same blend of asset types, and will therefore have different needs when it comes to assessing the best way to approach property division. All spouses, however, share the need to learn as much as possible about their financial circumstances, both during and after the divorce.
