Getting divorced? It can be trickier than you expect

Too many people make the mistake of assuming that because divorce is almost ordinary, it requires little more than some paperwork and signatures. However, this can be an extremely costly assumption to make. While divorce is not new, it is still considered a very complex area of law. 

For example, you may have to deal with some complicated property division issues. You and your soon-to-be ex might disagree on whether something is considered marital or separate property; you may not understand your rights regarding spousal support; you could wind up missing out on money you deserve from a property purchased with co-mingled assets. 

What about your kids? They will need to be supported and a parenting plan will have to be created to ensure the child's well-being is protected. There are specific laws in place that dictate how support and custody will be established in Florida, but failure to understand these laws could be a failure to understand your options to seek certain modifications or accommodations.

Further, you can find it all but impossible to stay on top of the paperwork that must be filed and deadlines that must be met. On top of the physical adjustments and emotional challenges of coping with divorce, it can be all but impossible also stay focused on the details of the legal process. 

On the surface, it may seem like getting a divorce is a pretty straightforward legal process. But the fact is that even if a split starts out smoothly, it can quickly get contentious and legally thorny.
