The number of couples going through divorces tends to rise at the beginning of each year. If you are among the many Florida residents who plan to divorce your significant other in the year to come, it is important to understand how doing so might impact your taxes. At the Law Office of Cheryl A. Bucker, P.A., we understand that divorce always has tax implications, but that new tax laws that took effect in 2019 may mean even more changes in the manner in which you file your taxes after a divorce.
For divorcing couples in Florida, child custody can be among the most contentious topics. As a result, many parents make serious mistakes during their cases, which can jeopardize their relationship with their kids. Avoiding these common mistakes is essential, and Live About offers the following advice on how you can do just that.
If you are going through a divorce in Florida, and you have a lot of money and assets, you should understand that your divorce is different from those in the middle- and lower-classes. There are different factors, such as child support, asset-valuation and legal proceedings, that make a divorce more complicated, so you should prepare in advance.
When people are married for a significant amount of time, they often become financially dependent on one another. If one person worked and made money to support the family, the other person may be out of luck when it comes to supporting themselves once the couple separates. Alimony is designed to help the financially dependent party get back on their feet or live after their financial provider is no longer available. There are four different types of alimony available to divorcees in Florida, including permanent, durational, bridge-the-gap, or rehabilitative.
As someone who is involved, or who may soon find yourself involved, in a Florida child custody case, you may begin hearing the term, “best interests of the child,” tossed around frequently, but you may not fully understand what it means or how it may impact your custody case. At the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., we understand that the “best interests of the child” often play a significant role in child custody decisions. We have helped many people facing similar circumstances understand the concept and demonstrate how certain living situations would, in fact, be in their child’s best interests.
Many people associate prenuptial agreements with planning to fail in a pending marriage. That negative connotation may also extend to postnuptial agreements. Much like prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements involve couples setting terms for the end of their marriage and outlining marital expectations for one another.
