How amicable are divorces in Florida?

It's probably safe to say that just about everyone knows someone who has gone through divorce. Some people's experience with divorce is simple and quick: they file without an attorney, have limited assets and no children involved. The two individuals weren't married very long and part ways quickly without much issue.

Reunification therapy: what is it and does it work? (PART 2)

In our last post we started a discussion about reunification therapy. This type of therapy was recently ordered in a divorce case in another state. The mother of the children involved has allegedly alienated her children from their father, alleging abuse. The judge ordered the kids to participate in reunification therapy in hopes of getting them to have a relationship with their father.

A recent divorce case coming out of another state has professionals looking at the effects of parental alienation. Parental alienation has to do with one parent essentially turning his or her children against the other parent.

Every divorce is unique in its own way, but it seems that a lot of couples end up fighting about the same things. Marriage therapists often hear similar arguments among those that are headed for divorce, according to a recent Huffington Post article.

Strengthen your marriage with the help of a prenup

You've spent a good portion of your life working toward your career goals and have established a thriving business or found a position at a Fortune 500 company.

Don't forget these assets during divorce (PART 1)

Divorce is not an easy feat for anyone, but it's especially true for those with a lot of assets. There are some basic assets that everyone thinks during divorce, including the marital home, bank accounts, savings accounts and vehicles. But some may be surprised to learn about the many other types of assets that should be considered in a divorce.

Divorce cannot solve all your problems

In our last post we talked about the different things that a divorce can do for an individual, such as divide property, set up support obligations and decide custody arrangements. While a Florida divorcee can expect these topics to be resolved through the process, there are definitely things a divorce cannot do.

What can a divorce do for me?

Some people head into divorce with specific expectations of how things will go. These expectations may come from seeing their friend's divorce play out or seeing their parents go through divorce. Expectations might even be formed by what someone reads online and what they see in movies. There are definitely some things that every person can expect to get from divorce, but it's important to understand what divorce can and cannot do.
