Fight for the spousal support you need after divorce

For many people, the idea of alimony isn't one they take lightly. Alimony awards essentially mean that there is no way to truly be free from your ex-spouse until the spousal support terms have been met. For people receiving alimony, the money is important, but so is peace of mind. Likewise, those who pay alimony may feel they're never able to be free of the other person or won't be for a long period of time.

Take a few steps before moving out during a divorce

Many, if not most, spouses who are divorcing would rather not live together. However, both may want to stay in the marital home, especially if there are children. If the tension gets so bad that you feel like you have no choice but to move out, protect yourself and your children by taking a few steps.

Approach your divorce as if it's a business arrangement

Divorces are emotionally charged, and it's normal for both parties to have periods of time when they cannot communicate well. However, it is in your best interests to do what you can to make this a peaceful separation if possible. If there is anger between you and your spouse, it will make things harder.

Parenting well means getting on the same page after divorce

Joint custody is often what judges want to see in a child custody arrangement. Unless there is a situation where abuse is possible, it's typically in the best interests of children to see both of their parents following the end of a marriage.

Biological fathers get a win in Florida's courts

If you recall a previous post about a man who was intimate with a woman who became pregnant, gave birth and then refused to allow him to see the child due to her marriage and legitimacy laws in Florida, you'll be happy to see that the laws have now changed. In the past, laws allowed women who were married to keep a biological father out of the picture if he was not her husband. The child, to be "legitimate," would be the legal child of the woman's husband, even though he wasn't the biological parent and the biological parent may want to be involved in the child's life.
