How does divorce mediation compare to litigation?

Many individuals here in Florida enter into their marriages on the assumption that they're always going to be head over heels in love with their partner. They don't realize just how much work a person has to put into making their relationship work. This is why spouses who aren't committed to the marriage often end up divorcing. Divorce battles don't have to become adversarial and become court-involved. Couples who pursue mediation can generally reach more mutually beneficial decisions than those who pursue time-consuming litigation.

What impact does my ex’s criminal record have on custody?

If you and your ex have split up and you're having difficulty working out a parenting plan among yourselves, then you may need to ask a judge to step in and make decisions for you instead. This may be easier said than done though. It's the responsibility of the Fort Myers family law judge presiding over your Florida case to make decisions that they believe are in the best interest of your child. This focus could result in your criminal ex being allowed to continue doing their part to raise your son or daughter.

How do Florida's property division laws work when we divorce?

When a divorce occurs, one of the first concerns that spouses have is what's going to happen with their assets that they both brought into and accumulated during the marriage. If you lived in one of the few community property states such as Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington or Wisconsin, then these assets would likely be deemed as community property. Fortunately, that's not generally the case in Florida though.

Are you experiencing indirect parenting time interference?

Adjusting to the difficulties of sharing custody with another parent often takes some time, particularly for parents who still hold some ill will toward each other. However, after a sufficient adjustment period, some parents continue behavior that causes conflict or distance in the other parent's relationship with their child.

How a contested and uncontested divorce are different

When a marriage fails, there are no winners or losers, just regret and lost dreams. Sometimes, both parties realize that the marriage is beyond the point of repair, and they mutually agree to move on. In such instances, those are called uncontested divorces.
