Tips for older Punta Gorda spouses facing divorce

Going through a divorce is never easy, but is can be especially difficult for older spouses. Making matters worse, some spouses are also preparing to take control of their own finances for the first time in decades. Far too many Punta Gorda residents allow their partner to handle all of the family's finances, which can leave them ill-prepared to assume those duties after a divorce.

One state's new law is creating heated debates around the nation. The law centers on disputes between parties who created and stored embryos prior to a divorce or breakup, and are using a child custody attorney to fight the issue.

An example is found in another part of the country, where a man most certainly did not follow the advice of a child custody attorney when deciding to forge his wife's signature on their divorce papers.
