For Florida couples who are going through a divorce, child custody battles may create a good deal of tension and animosity. Property division may cause tension as well, and if the property to be divided includes animals, then that tension may run especially high. For many, animals are a part of the family, though the legal system recognizes them as personal property. In the event of a divorce, animals may make property division especially difficult, as individuals have sometimes used the threat of taking over custody of an animal as a way to leverage better deals in terms of acquisition of property.
Florida residents may be interested in a recent article which discussed the current plight of divorced fathers facing alleged discrimination by the Florida family court system. According to the article, the discrimination stems from the failure of a bill last year that would have overhauled the court system. Opposition to the bill was lobbied intensely by a women's rights group. Among other things, the bill would have ended the possibility of fathers paying permanent alimony.
Florida residents who are fans of film director Michael Moore may have read about his recent marital problems. Moore is currently undergoing a split that one source characterized as "vicious." He is divorcing his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. Though Moore is perhaps better known than Glynn, she had a hand in his success, as she produced some of Moore's documentaries for which he has become famous. The couple also amassed tens of millions of dollars during their time together, and much of this high asset divorce will undoubtedly deal with dividing the large amount of money and property they have between the two of them.
When a Florida couple seeks a divorce, they may become involved in property division proceedings that might become complicated, depending on certain factors. However, a recent article discusses some basics of the process that might be beneficial to some readers.
