A great deal of research focuses on the ins and outs of various types of human relationships. Marriage and divorce are among the most common topics of social science inquiry, and a recent study looks at how changes in marital status affects men and women differently. The results will not come as a surprise to many, but will hopefully lead to awareness of the importance of self-care following a Florida divorce.
After a Florida spouse has announced his or her decision to end a marriage, friends and family often gather around to offer their love and support. Some of that care is expressed in the form of unsolicited divorce advice. While this advice is offered with the best of intentions, spouses who listen are at risk of making significant divorce mistakes, some of which can have serious long-term consequences.
When a Florida resident is faced with a divorce or child custody case, one of the first concerns is how much the entire process will cost. Family law can be expensive, depending on the complexity of a case and the motivation of one or both parties to drag things out longer than necessary. Many people struggle to fund a legal battle, but they are unsure where to turn for help. A relatively new tool exists that could help some people cover a portion of the cost of their divorce or custody case.
When a marriage is heading south, one of the first steps that most Florida spouses will take is to hire a family law attorney to represent their interests. Often, the spouses involved have little or no experience with the process of divorce. Even those who have gone through a prior divorce are limited to the lessons learned during that experience. While having solid legal counsel is always a good idea. It is important to understand that the attorney/client relationship is a partnership.
