Making the Right Choice is Crucial for You and Your Family
As most people grow from adolescence to adulthood they make plans for their futures. Some plans involve education for a career, and plans to have their own family, which often include marriage.
According to The Week: “The first recorded evidence of marriage ceremonies uniting one woman and one man dates from about 2350 B.C., in Mesopotamia. Over the next several hundred years, marriage evolved into a widespread institution embraced by the ancient Hebrews, Greeks, and Romans.”
Religion has been a big part of marriage and the marriage ceremony over the years, and people could usually not obtain a divorce without the permission of the Church.
When a couple recites their wedding vows, a divorce is certainly the last thing on their minds, but according to the U.S. Census Bureau approximately 41% of marriages end in divorce.
If it seems that a divorce is inevitable there are literally dozens of factors to consider. A few of them include:
How to handle care for and custody of dependent children. Kids sometimes adapt very well to their parents going through a divorce but sometimes they don’t, so their well-being should be a top priority.
Property and Financial Disclosures are very critical to understanding and agreeing to asset distribution between two parties in a divorce. Required forms must be completed truthfully and in a timely manner.
Future support including Child Support and Alimony must be thoroughly investigated, conform to guidelines, and enforced.
The law in Florida that pertains to divorce and related issues is CHAPTER 61 DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE; SUPPORT; TIME-SHARING and it is a very detailed and lengthy statute. It’s very important to hire an attorney who completely understands this statute and others to protect your interests.
Your attorney should also make sure that the other party follows the rules, and that you and your family are safe from any harm whatsoever.
Divorce can and should be accomplished in a peaceful and professional manner, and an experienced attorney can make the process as seamless as possible.
