For Florida parents considering a future divorce, the biggest concern is often their right to child custody. No one wants to make a decision that could negatively impact their relationship with their children. However, staying in an unhappy marriage out of fear of changing things isn't necessarily the best decision either.
When a couple ends their marriage, many issues may surface. Strong emotions are common, especially when a custody dispute or some other serious family law challenge arises. Moreover, the financial impact of a divorce can be staggering. You may be able to lessen the financial impact of ending your marriage through preparation. At the very least, you may be better prepared to emotionally manage the different ways in which your divorce will affect your finances.
Each divorce comes with its own set of challenges and complications that makes it unique. For instance, perhaps when your best friend got divorced, she and her ex had a long and drawn-out custody battle. With your upcoming divorce, the main fight might not be over which of you gets custody of the kids, but what to do with your beach-front property in Naples. Even two divorces that seem like they are the same will probably be very different.
