In Florida, your divorce may end with an order for alimony to your spouse. This order is usually based upon some qualifying factors, such as the length of time you were married, what you and your spouse contributed to the marriage and the lifestyle you maintained together. This order remains in effect unless and until either you or your ex ask for it to be modified.
When couples with children divorce, many people may assume that the parents will separate and maintain their own households while the children are shuttled between the two. However, this is not always the case. According to Psychology Today, a new trend in co-parenting, Bird’s Nesting, is making it so that more children stay in their homes without having to rearrange their living conditions every few days.
