Going through a divorce can be a complicated process, especially if there are children involved. In addition to determining the type of child custody that works best for your family situation, the court must set the amount of child support that the non-custodial parent must pay. After the base child support amount is determined, there are extra expenses shared by both parents, including medical expenses, educational costs, insurance and daycare costs. Are parents required to split the cost of recreational activities as well?

Splitting marital property in a divorce

In Florida, and in many other states in the country, marital property is split in a fair and equitable fashion. Whether a judge presiding over the case determines who is entitled to what in the divorce settlement or the couple negotiates the terms of the divorce through mediation, dividing marital property can be daunting. Both parties are responsible for disclosing all marital property they have in their possession. However, this includes more than the family home, vehicles, furniture and belongings.
