What the rich should understand about divorce

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.

What constitutes marital property?

Going through a divorce or legal separation can be overwhelming. Not only are there strong emotions involved, but you may find it difficult to face certain tasks while creating the final divorce settlement.
