Summer break and family law issues involving children

If you are dealing with family law issues as a parent, there may be a number of issues you have to consider during the summertime. For example, perhaps you planned a vacation and were planning on taking your child along but are unsure if a custody arrangement will interfere with your plans. Or, perhaps you are thinking about filing for divorce but do not want to ruin your child’s summer break. Regardless of the unique considerations you have, it is crucial to handle family law matters appropriately—especially when children are involved.

Going through a divorce during pregnancy

There are many different reasons why people may struggle with a divorce, whether they are worried about the potential financial effects of splitting up with their spouse (being required to pay child support or alimony, property division, and so on) or are stressed out due to a custody battle. For some people, there are unique circumstances that can must be taken into consideration when it comes to the end of a marriage. For example, someone who is pregnant may be particularly worried about how a divorce will affect their life and their newborn.

Emotions and the end of a marriage

Family law cases can bring a number of challenges in a person’s life, but some people are also able to find a brighter future and a new beginning. Each case is different and there are all sorts of factors that can affect how a family law case plays out in court. With divorce, there are many different issues that a person may encounter, especially if they have kids. For example, the division of marital property, spousal support, child custody and child support are just some of the legal issues that people may have to work through when they bring their marriage to an end.

Should we have a postnuptial agreement?

The last thing on most minds of newly-married couples in Florida is divorce. They are in love and cannot imagine not being together forever. However, all marriages go through struggles, and if they are not handled properly divorce may be the unfortunate outcome. Whether couples are currently going through some trials and tribulations, or they are still in the honeymoon stage, they may want to consider making a postnuptial agreement to protect them in the future or even protect their marriage.

Complications in LGBT divorces with children

Once the Supreme Court ruled that same sex-marriage was a right, regardless of what state a couple lives in, many couples quickly eloped. Others finally executed plans they had spent years hoping to see through. Getting married was like a dream come true to these couples, who had long faced denial of equal rights under questionable state laws.

Wives of business owners need to be careful during divorce

During a divorce, each party has to look after his or her own interests. For women who have always relied on their spouse to handle financial matters, going through the divorce can be scary. Add in a business that's supported the family, and the situation becomes even more complicated, which can be very uncomfortable.

Methods spouses use to hide property

If you have reason to believe your Florida marriage may be coming to an end, it may be due, at least in part, to a breakdown of trust between you and your spouse. If you no longer trust your spouse, you may have valid suspicions that he or she is trying to stockpile assets in an effort to position his or herself well, financially, should the two of you ultimately divorce. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A., we have a clear understanding of the tactics divorcing couples sometimes use to conceal assets from each other, and we have helped many clients uncover hidden property, money and possessions to ensure they get their rightful share.

What is considered separate property?

One of the major questions divorcing Florida residents may face is what constitutes property that they share under law. Much of their property and assets will be considered martial property and will likely be divided up in a divorce proceeding. However, some property may still be considered the separate property of each party, as the Huffington Post describes in this article.

College issues that come with divorce

Ending your marriage can change your life in many different ways. For example, your relationship with your children could be affected or you might experience financial complications. However, preparing ahead can help prevent or reduce the impact of these challenges, in some instances. Moreover, it is important to be aware of the other ways that divorce could affect you. For example, whether you are attending college or one of your children will soon start classes, it may be a good idea to focus on this facet of life if you are approaching divorce.
