More than ever, couples are staying married while they are raising their children and then deciding to separate after those children are grown and out of the house. Retirement is often a catalyst for divorce as well, since many people realize that they want to spend their retirement years in a different way than their spouse does.
Your divorce is finally over, but you felt shocked and infuriated to receive a court order for far less than you expected in child support and alimony. You also knew there were assets your ex didn’t report to the court, leading to an unfair division of property. Nothing can be more frustrating than getting the short end of the stick. Unfortunately, people in Florida and elsewhere regularly hide assets during their divorce proceedings.
There is much debate on what the best parenting style is for helping children to be happy, successful and thrive. Every child is different, and it can be argued that parenting styles should be able to adapt to the unique preferences and needs of the child in question.
When you file for a divorce, it is likely that you are doing so because of toxicity and hostile behavior in your relationship. While the filing will be a way to get a fresh start and move on with your life, unfortunately the initial weeks and months after the filing will likely bring with it additional hostile behavior from your divorcing spouse.
If you are going through a divorce or separation and children are involved, it is likely that it means that you and your former partner need to work together to figure out how you will co-parent in the future. If one or neither of you is from the state in which you currently reside, one of you may express the desire to relocate. However. relocating can have a big impact on child visitation, and it can have an impact on the relationship that you have with your former partner.
When you have separated from the other parent of your child, it is likely that you will struggle to see eye-to-eye when it comes to deciding what is the best solution for your child. It is important that you try to separate relationship-specific issues with things that are actually relevant to the custody of your child. In this way, you can put your own differences aside for the benefit of your child or children.
