Is legal separation right for you?

Floridian couples like you may have come to the conclusion that you want to split from your partner. However, you may be wondering if divorce is the only answer - or if it's the right option for your unique situation. Fortunately for you, there are actually a number of options to choose from.

Financial hardships and the divorce process

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.

Leaving an abusive marriage

For some people, the decision to file for a divorce may be based on a simple desire to part ways because the partnership is not compatible, or someone has found a new partner. For others, such as those who have been subjected to domestic violence, the decision to divorce may be based on a serious need to protect oneself. If you have experienced domestic violence, it is pivotal for you to know all of the options that you may have to ensure the well-being of yourself as well as your children. Moreover, you should carefully approach the process of divorce and other family law issues that may arise (such as a dispute over custody).

Preparing yourself for property division

Our law firm knows that divorce issues can be hard for many reasons. Some are very emotional, such as those which involve a custody dispute, while others may be difficult from a financial point of view (child support, alimony and so on). Property division can be hard from both an emotional and financial standpoint, bringing up concerns about losing property with sentimental value and assets that one has worked hard to acquire. In Naples and other cities throughout the state of Florida, those who are preparing to split up with someone they are married to should carefully go over property division laws and try to prepare.

Focusing on your divorce in the midst of other challenges

When a married couple decides that the time has come to bring things to an end, there may be many areas of uncertainty. For example, questions could arise regarding family law issues which involve children, such as child support or a dispute over custody. Financial issues may also become problematic, especially for couples with considerable assets. Property division, alimony and many other family law issues can create challenges for couples in this position. Sometimes, external stressors which have nothing to do with family law can further complicate matters, and it is important to make sure that these challenges do not interfere with your divorce.

Ending your marriage over an emotional affair

There are all sorts of factors that can contribute to a couple’s decision to split up, whether the decision is mutual or one party is determined to move on from the marriage. Infidelity is a major reason why many couples end their marriage and people do not always have affairs that are physical in nature, but some may be emotional. In the digital age, there are many different apps and new methods of communication, such as video chat, which can make it easier for people to have these types of affairs with others from across the globe.

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.
