Can you keep your money safe during divorce?

If you have recently filed for divorce from your spouse in Florida, you are probably dealing with a lot of inner conflict. While you are satisfied that you will have your freedom back and are no longer required to deal with ongoing conflict, you are now faced with many difficult and important decisions related to your future and that of your children. During this time of inconsistency and unexpected roadblocks, it is critical that you take the right steps to protect your future. 

A look at how non-custodial parents can still make an impact

One of the most contentious and time-consuming parts of many divorces in Florida is negotiating and arranging a child custody agreement. In many cases, parents fight each other for primary custody of their children and the outcome can vary significantly depending on the situation. Child custody is often determined after the courts look closely at the condition of each parent's finances and living arrangements. They also assess a child's needs, age, gender and comfort in determining which arrangement would ultimately benefit each child involved. 

Reassessing your mortgage to avoid foreclosure during divorce

You and your spouse have decided to get a divorce, but now you are concerned about how that decision will affect the home you own together in Florida. With both of your names on title documents, you are both legally responsible for continuing to make payments on the property. At Fried and Fried, P.A., we have helped many people to reach an amicable solution in the separation of assets during their divorce. 

Coaching staff under fire after allegations of domestic violence

Marital problems are something that plagues every relationship between husband and wife. However, in serious cases where people do not understand or try to control their emotions, domestic violence can become a problem that puts the safety of victims in harm's way. While many people in Florida suffer silently from this pervasive problem, there may be confidants of the perpetrator that are aware of the ongoing abuse, but do nothing to stop it out of fear, denial or deliberate ignorance. 

Division of retirement assets in a Florida divorce

The financial aspects of a divorce can be extremely complicated and often confusing. Florida law, among other states, can be difficult to understand when determining how to divide financial aspects in a divorce. Retirement accounts, like other assets that qualify for marital property, are divisible in a Florida divorce.
