Carefully handling business assets before and after divorce

When walking through the process of ending a marriage, a Florida business owner may have significant concerns about how it will affect his or her company and future success. The division of business assets is often one of the most complex aspects of walking through divorce, and it can lead to stressful and costly disputes and the need for litigation. Many business owners find it beneficial to learn how they can legal protect their company in case of a divorce. 

What is the purpose of mediation in a divorce?

Are you hesitant to begin the divorce process because of the contention it will bring? Divorce is never fun or easy, but it can be less stressful if you approach it in the right way. The traditional method of litigation is the least beneficial to your emotional health, except in certain cases where it is necessary, such as domestic violence.

Why business owners can benefit from prenuptial agreements

As a Florida business owner, a divorce can bring about significant financial changes and the threat of losing valuable business-related assets. In order to prevent stressful litigation and the potential for financial loss in the event a marriage ends, savvy business owners find it beneficial to draft prenuptial agreements before walking down the aisle. These documents can clearly outline how property division will work, allowing a person to protect his or her interests.

Social media and its impact on how people approach divorce

When a Florida couple decides to end their marriage, it requires that they divide marital property and address other important issues, such as child custody. In the age of social media, however, divorce may also mean an intentional extrication of two digital lives. Through Facebook and other social media platforms, a couple may find their lives entangled through tagged pictures, old status updates and mutual friends. This can add a new level of complexity to the process of divorce.

Emotions can lead to irrational family law decisions

When a Florida couple is walking through the process of divorce, it means they will have to address many important issues, including child custody, visitation schedules and more. These are complicated family law issues, and sometimes, it is difficult to set strong emotions to the side in order to pursue a reasonable agreement. When a person allows his or her emotions to drive the decisions made in a divorce, it can lead to lopsided or irrational agreements.
