Signs that divorce may be on the horizon

Most relationships go through periods of ups and downs, which is a perfectly normal thing. However, there are some relationship issues that point to deeper problems, and can be signs of a looming divorce. Knowing how to recognize these signs can help Florida spouses know when to buckle down and work on their marriage, and when it may be time to consider divorce.

Fighting the state for child custody rights

When a family member is accused of mistreating his or her child in Florida or elsewhere, the reaction is often to take a defensive stance and fight against those claims. However, there are many child custody cases in which parents are unable to overcome the assertions made by the state's social services agency. An example is found in a case in which a mother is accusing social workers of taking improper action.

Same-sex couple embroiled in child custody battle

When the Supreme Court acted to legalize same-sex marriage last year, many believed that the move would change the lives of many Florida residents. Unfortunately, same-sex couples still face an uphill battle when seeking divorce and addressing matters of child custody. An example is found in a highly contentious case between two women who are struggling over the care and custody of two children.

Understand how jurisdiction factors into divorce

When a Florida marriage is in trouble, spouses need to make every effort to set aside their emotions and make decisions that are rational and practical. If divorce is on the horizon, there are a multitude of factors that can have significant impact on the final outcome. One of those factors is the jurisdiction in which the divorce will take place. Many people fail to recognize the power that lies in being able to select the jurisdiction.

Looking for ways to ease the property division process?

For some Florida spouses, the prospect of dividing marital assets is a source of dread. In fact, many couples remain married for years after it has become clear that their marriage is doomed, simply to avoid the property division process. One European entrepreneur has taken a novel approach to easing the process of dividing marital assets. While still in the early stages of development, his concept could eventually reach American shores.
