Divorce and therapy in Florida

Florida spouses who are going through divorce may find that hiring the services of a mental health professional can be beneficial to understanding and expressing their emotions, talking through their problems and maintaining relationships. Mental health professionals can also provide mediation services for spouses who have children and are in need of assistance in laying the groundwork for custody and visitation arrangements.

Alimony records in Florida

Under Florida law, alimony is a type of payment that is given from one ex-spouse to another after a divorce. These payments are intended to prevent one of the spouses from losing the standard of living that he or she had become accustomed to during the marriage. Alimony is usually ordered to be paid to a spouse that did not have a job during the marriage or to the spouse that had the lowest income. Whatever the circumstances, it is very important to keep careful records of all alimony payments and documents.

How to avoid unnecessary legal fees while getting divorced

Divorce is often a complicated and expensive process for many couples. By fighting about child custody, alimony and property division issues, some end up spending exorbitant amounts of money on legal fees. Fortunately, by avoiding a few common mistakes, couples in Florida can go their separate ways without breaking the bank.

How divorce may affect the credit of the parties

The interaction of credit and the maintenance of credit ratings can be substantially more complex inside a marriage. It is common for married couples in Florida to set up joint accounts with some lenders, and the liability for these accounts will often stay with the couple after they get a divorce. It may be wise to carefully review all financial arrangements and structure the divorce settlement properly, or serious impact to the credit rating and unfair liability for debt may result.
