Inventory assets early on in the divorce process

One of the primary focal points at the end of a marriage is the division of marital assets. In fact, except for issues of child custody, property division is the center of most divorce cases. One of the most important ways to achieve a successful division of property is to begin with a firm understanding of the full range of family assets. Taking inventory of those assets should be a step that is completed early in the divorce process.

Insurance coverage is an important divorce topic

When making the transition from married to single, many Florida residents fail to include insurance coverage in their planning. For most people, however, their insurance coverage is bundled with that of their spouse. When a divorce takes place, each party will have to find his or her own coverage, which can be an unexpected expense. It takes a degree of planning to factor insurance costs into the overall divorce process, and to ensure that one's post-divorce budget can handle the changes to come.

After divorce, judge limits daughter's golf prospects

Many Florida parents support and encourage their children to pursue their passion, whether that pursuit is music, academics, sports or art. In some rare cases, a child will display a particularly high aptitude for their chosen pursuit, and there is a chance that he or she will develop into a prodigy in that field. Such is the case for a little girl who seems to have a promising golf career ahead of her, but who is caught in the middle of her parents' divorce and custody battle.

Paternity an issue in reversed adoption case

When an adoption is challenged in court, the outcome is usually heartbreaking for one side of the dispute. In a recent case, a man took his case to the highest level in his state of residence, and was successful in having his daughter's adoption overturned. In an unusual twist, the man was able to win, despite the fact that paternity testing revealed that he is not the child's biological father. The outcome may be of interest to many Florida fathers.
