How to protect yourself financially from a spiteful spouse

There is a bitter irony in the fact that engagement month in December is swiftly followed by the season of divorce in January. This may also be the month when many divorcing breadwinners in Florida begin to waste marital assets to reduce the value of assets that should be divided with their spouse. From gambling to spending money on lovers, no act is too low for these people.

Dealing with divorce as a large family

When it comes to divorce, every couple is in a unique situation. Some may have a great deal of wealth, while others may be struggling due to a low income. Some couples may have no children and others may have several kids. If you and your marital partner have many children, there are a number of issues that must be taken into consideration when you bring your marriage to an end. Not only is child custody a potential hurdle, but you may also have to deal with legal issues related to child support payments. Moreover, divorce can be especially stressful for those who have many kids.

The pain of 'feeling' after a divorce

When someone has decided to end their marriage and pursue a divorce in Florida, the challenges they are facing can often be unnerving and overwhelming. Processing the significant change that has taken place, grieving the loss of a once-cherished relationship and coming to terms with an uncertain future can take time. Often, people are required to process these difficult emotions while managing the details of their divorce including child custody and relocation. 

Stepchildren and family law matters

When a marriage ends, it can be a tumultuous time for the entire family. Moreover, some families, such as those which involve a stepparent, may have additional uncertainty as they move toward the finalization of a divorce. For example, a stepparent may have questions about whether or not they will be able to spend time with their child after the divorce and their visitation or custody rights. Moreover, some may wonder if they will be obligated to pay child support.

Approaching divorce as a young couple

In recent years, many people have been pushing off marriage until they are older. However, some people still tie the knot at a young age for various reasons. For example, a couple that is in their teens may get married following an unexpected pregnancy, or another couple may decide to get married right after they have finished college because they feel ready to settle down. However, those who get married at a very early age may come to find that their marriage is not working out and that divorce is necessary. The divorce process can be very tough for couples in this position.

How can I deal with conflict during the holidays?

While the holidays are thought to be a time of joy and celebration, this is not always the case. For recently divorced people in Florida, the holiday season can be rife with conflict and bad feelings. That’s why Very Well Mind offers the following tips, which can help you navigate family issues wherever they arise.

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).
