Can your ex's wages be garnished to collect child support?

The end of your marriage may not necessarily signal the end of your association with your spouse, particularly if the two of you have children together in Plantation. You likely will continue to have to work together to raise and support your kids, with both of you contributing a good deal of your resources to their care. Oftentimes, negative feelings that exist between ex-spouses can prompt one to try and get back at the other by not fulfilling his or her parental obligations (including missing child support payments). The question is what recourse is available to you if your ex follows this same pattern.

The financial protections of a prenuptial agreement

Marriage is just the beginning of a close relationship. Couples can recognize deep emotional ties long before marrying, but saying "I do" brings new legal and financial considerations into the relationship. According to Business Insider, Millennials have more than $1 trillion in debt, much of it in the form of student loans. Do you want to be held responsible for your spouse's tuition debt?

Is divorce complicated in same-sex situations?

While gay marriage was legalized in all states in 2015, marriage laws are different from divorce laws. You can probably rightly assume that same-sex divorces will be handled the same way as other divorces in Florida, but that does not mean there are not special circumstances that could arise. It is those things that make gay divorce a little confusing.

Few grandparents’ rights in Florida

Many across the country associate Florida with their grandparents, as many move to the Sunshine State in retirement, but as far as visitation rights go, grandparents do not have legal standing here. As the Sun Sentinel reports, while some states do offer visitation rights to grandparents, Florida courts consistently have found on the part of parents that forcing visitation with grandparents is a violation of privacy.

Invalidating a prenuptial agreement in Florida

Couples in Plantation that are preparing to wed likely have their thoughts preoccupied with planning their weddings, and then their subsequent lives together. There is likely no place given in those plans for the potential for divorce. Yet for those who bring significant assets into their marriages, having a prenuptial agreement in place may be something to consider in the event that their relationships do end. Indeed, more and more couples appear to making this decision together, with the Wall Street Journal sharing that the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reports a 63 percent increase in such agreements in recent years.
