Helping kids deal with divorce

While divorce is hard on anyone, it can be especially difficult for children to process. Kids usually see the instability and discontent that causes fighting even before the divorce is ever filed. They are often fearful of the process and sometimes feel alone because the parents are caught up in their own trauma. But families who are going through a Florida divorce can make the transition smoother by following a few simple suggestions.

Legalities of divorce

The end of a marriage can be one of the most upsetting and stressful times in a person's life. It is the ending of their happily ever after and may cause some to feel as though they have failed in some way. The divorce rate in Florida and across the U.S. continues to rise, however, showing divorcees that it is more common than they may think. There are several legalities of divorce that are important to note.

Your divorce and the search for hidden assets

The subject of hidden assets may not come up in every divorce, but it frequently enters the conversation when the couple’s personal or business assets are substantial. The law requires equitable distribution of the marital estate, but one partner or the other may not want to share everything.

Florida opiod epidemic leaving kids in need of adoption

Many parents in the state have found themselves unable to care for their own children because of drug abuse. It has become such a large epidemic that there is now a name for the kids from these situations. They are known as Florida's opioid orphans, and many of them may be in desperate need of adoption.

Remember the 401K in divorce property division

There are several assets which tend to be overlooked in a divorce. A spouse's retirement plan, such as their 401K is one of those assets. There are a few requirements that must be met, but once this is done, the 401K can be made a part of the divorce property division. These laws not only apply in Florida but in the rest of the country as well.
