Is my prenup going to control the outcome of my divorce?

Not every Florida couple chooses to enter into a premarital agreement prior to getting married. The decision to create a premarital agreement may depend on what assets and possessions the parties hold prior to entering to a marital union. It may also depend upon the past relationships of the parties and whether they wish to protect their separate property for the benefit of children or other family members in lieu of their prospective spouses.

Which comes first: Divorce or bankruptcy?

Financial difficulties plague many Florida families. In some cases, they contribute to marital problems that may be temporary or could mean the end of the marriage. If this happened in your case, you may be wondering whether you can afford to file for divorce considering the fact that you may start your new life with a significant amount of debt.

Child support delinquencies survive bankruptcy proceedings

A custodial parent may fear the day that their child's support-paying parent files for personal bankruptcy. Bankruptcy proceedings are used to eliminate debts and allow individuals to get back on their feet after struggling with their financial situations. A Florida parent who is trying to provide for their child but who is struggling to get judicially ordered payments from their ex may worry that bankruptcy will absolve the delinquent parent of the past and future obligations to their child.

What are the options for physical custody of a child in Florida?

It can be hard on a child to watch their parents end their marriage in divorce. Even if the divorce is the best option for the family, a child can still experience strong feelings of loss and fear when their household is divided into two. For this and other reasons, Florida parents should fully understand their options when it comes to finding the best possible custody solutions for their kids.

Florida sheriff advocates for stricter drunk driving laws

Drunk driving can be a dangerous practice that can lead to accidents and arrests. The state of Florida, as well as other jurisdictions throughout the nation, have criminalized the act and impose different penalties on those who are convicted of drunk driving crimes. Every person accused of drunk driving, though, is entitled to their day in court and their right to fight for their freedom.

Is your landlord responsible for your physical safety?

If you rent property in Florida, it is beneficial for you to understand how to protect your rights and interests. Landlords have the responsibility to do certain things for their tenants, including ensuring the property is safe and secure. However, as a renter, it is smart for you to understand the landlord's responsibilities involving criminal activity.
