Florida official embroiled in high asset divorce case

A Florida official is embroiled in a high asset divorce case that seems to have her jockeying for her husband's money. The official, Clerk of Court Brenda D. Forman, works in Broward County. Her husband, Howard C. Forman, is a former politician in the state. He recently also served as Clerk of Court. He stepped down from the position and helped get his wife elected.

Just three months after Forman was elected to her husband's former post, her husband filed for divorce. One day after the papers were filed, Mrs. Forman requested that the court appoint her as the temporary guardian of her husband, which would give her control over his property, safety and money. She claimed that he was in the early stages of dementia.

Mr. Forman claims that his wife is simply trying to prolong the divorce so she can acquire his monthly pension, which totals $12,000. He also claims that his wife is aiming to acquire his benefits from Social Security as well as interest from tax-deferred savings he was issued in January from the state.

Mrs. Forman never held a political office or a job in management prior to getting elected to her current post. She also does not have a college degree. She was working as a clerk in Mr. Forman's office for two years when the couple got married for $22,000 per year.

Being involved in a high asset divorce can be stressful, emotional and tiring. An experienced divorce attorney in Fort Lauderdale can answer all of your questions and guide you in the right direction.
