Why you could have to share custody with your abusive ex

If you are a victim of domestic violence, then you probably want to do everything possible to keep your child from potentially being subjected to ill-treatment at your abuser's hands. You may think that keeping your child from their other parent will ensure that this happens. Sadly, Florida judges don't always see things the same way.

There is hope if you want to save your business from your ex

If you've spent a long time growing your Fort Myers business and rely on it for your livelihood, it's likely that you don't want to jeopardize it in a divorce. If you and your spouse are headed for splitsville, then you may very well lose it unless you have a prenuptial agreement in place.

What are some alternatives to alimony payments?

The new tax code that went into effect at the beginning of this year affected the long-standing way in which alimony payments have historically been handled. Former spouses who make alimony payments no longer qualify for tax deductions. Their recipient ex is now required to pay income taxes on what they receive. This approach to taxing alimony is significantly different from how it's historically been for the past few decades.

Do not let divorce myths keep you from doing what is right

Divorce can be hard on anyone. After all, when you married your spouse, you likely believed you would spend many years with him or her. Now that your marriage is coming to an end, you may have some trouble adjusting to a new reality. You should not, however, let some common divorce misconceptions dissuade you from doing what is best for you and your family.
