A new means of funding a family law case

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.

The role of kindness in family law issues

Once a Florida resident is ready to move beyond a broken marriage, he or she is often eager to get on with the process of divorce. The other spouse is not always so eager to embrace the changes that come with divorce, especially if the parties share children. It is important that both spouses conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful and kind toward each other, even if that means slowing down the process of addressing various family law issues.

Pet support case has interesting family law question

Virtually all Florida residents are familiar with spousal support, where one spouse makes payments to the other spouse to provide financial assistance after a divorce. Formerly known as alimony, spousal support has become far less common than in years past. Today's spousal support is often a lesser amount and for a shorter duration than was the norm for previous generations. One unusual celebrity case takes a different approach on this type of family law support payment.

Social media can lead to family law issues

The impact that social media now has on interpersonal relationships is nothing short of astounding. People can now keep in touch with extended family, catch up with old friends, and even track down an old high school love interest; all from the comfort of their own homes. Never before has it been easier for Florida residents to reconnect with people or to branch out and make new friends and acquaintances. That said, social media also affords a number of opportunities to create family law issues, many of which can have unwelcome consequences.

Frozen embryos present unique family law issue

When a Florida couple with no children decides to part ways, the matter is often far simpler than for those families who share children. This is not always the case, however, as exemplified by an unusual family law issue currently underway in a West Coast courtroom. The matter concerns a divorced couple who are fighting over the use of frozen embryos.

Links between estate planning and family law

During a Florida divorce, most couples spend a significant amount of time and effort determining which party will retain which assets. Property division is an important aspect of the divorce process, and one that will have a great deal of impact on the years ahead. However, there is an extra step that spouses should take to ensure that their former partner does not gain access to certain assets. This family law matter is linked to estate planning, and should be addressed during any divorce.
