Some debts aren't easy for divorcing couples to split up

It's often hard for spouses to decide how to deal with the debts that they accumulated during their marriage when they choose to divorce. Some debts that couples have difficulty splitting up include the mortgage, credit card balances, medical bills and car payments.

Who keeps the health insurance when you divorce?

Divorce can be a difficult process for any couple. How many people stop to think about their health insurance while their marriage is falling apart, however? They should. This is especially the case if one-half of a divorcing couple is on their soon-to-be ex's health insurance plan. That coverage may come to an end once a divorce is finalized, and purchasing private insurance can be very expensive.

Receiving alimony for an indefinite period is never guaranteed. Several things can cause your spousal support payments to be terminated such as death, remarriage or cohabitation.

What does an ideal co-parenting schedule look like?

No parent wants to be limited in sharing time with their kids. Moms and dads have to come to terms with doing so once they break up, however.

Ultimately, it's your job to do what's in the best interest of your children.

Divorcing a narcissistic ex? Consider these points

Leaving a marriage that was fraught with strife is a challenging undertaking. It can be made worse in many cases, one of which occurs when you're divorcing a narcissist.

What strategies do Florida judges employ for determining alimony?

Family law judges in every state including Florida use different formulas for determining how much alimony a spouse should pay another when they divorce. Even still, it's possible for husbands and wives who are ordered to pay spousal support to negotiate up or down any amounts that they ultimately have to pay or receive. Spouses must generally be able to present certain information in their Florida divorce case to warrant a deviation from the original amount.
