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.
Couples filing for divorce in Florida may need a judge to help them determine how their marital property will be equitably divided. Although some individuals may want a judge to see pets as children, dogs and cats are treated in divorce courts like any other piece of property subject to equitable division. When one spouse loves a pet like a child, the other spouse may try to take advantage of that party's emotional bond by extorting other property concessions in exchange for relinquishing a claim of pet ownership.
Florida couples who have amassed a substantial amount of wealth may find that they are in dispute regarding the ownership and distribution of their wealth and assets. In one such case, two Washington, D.C. lobbyists are fighting over the ownership of various assets and the distribution of these assets in their divorce.
