How serious is paternity fraud?

While you have long claimed that you are not the father to a child that you are paying child support for, your story has not been proven otherwise so you are continuing to provide paternal support to raise the child in Florida. However, as the years go on, you wonder if there cannot be something you can do to establish paternity and get a clear answer. Understanding what paternity fraud is and how to detect it is critical in giving you guidance in determining what you should do. 

How do I maintain my finances after a divorce?

One of the biggest issues many people have after a divorce in Florida is getting back to a secure financial state. Divorce can bring about many financial issues due to splitting assets and having to pay costs associated with the process. It can be very difficult for many families. Even if you were financially well off before the divorce, you could still face issues.

Are prenups only about money?

When you think of a prenuptial agreement, you probably are like most people and immediately think about a couple in Florida who are well off and have financial interests to protect. While that is typically the main use for such agreements, that is not the only way they are used. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that many prenups contain items that do not pertain to finances at all.

Paternity and inheritance: why it is important

Unmarried fathers in Florida face more complicated questions of how to pass on inheritances and benefits to their Lee County children than married fathers since they may not know how the law will regard their biological children. The law could deny children of unmarried fathers certain inheritance rights and benefits if the father does not establish paternity or the courts do not recognize the father as the children's legal father before the father passes away.

How can I cope with a difficult ex during a divorce?

Going through a divorce in Florida is never easy. It is especially difficult when you have children and have to determine a parenting plan. It can be made harder if you have a spouse who is not willing to compromise or who argues with you at every turn. You should not be expected to just give in to such bullying tactics. You have to stand your ground, but how can you manage a difficult ex and still ensure your divorce does not cause undue harm to your children?
