Smart moves when facing a toxic divorce

While most people would rather a divorce be a calm and amicable proceeding, some circumstances can make that impossible. For those who have been married to a narcissistic or noxious person, a toxic divorce may be inevitable. In Florida and elsewhere, those who are anticipating such a split can prepare. There are a few smart moves to make when facing such a situation.

Property division and the prenuptial agreement

Years ago, many couples would get married soon after high school graduation. In today's world, however, the average Florida couple is typically several years older and each individual has already begun to establish himself or herself financially. With this in mind, many couples are discovering that a prenuptial agreement is a useful tool in both a possible property division agreement in case things do not work out as well as an avenue to discuss current financial situations and philosophies.

Divorce and property division spikes after vacation

Labor Day weekend ended too quickly, and the kids are returning to school. For many Florida families who trudged to the beach or the mountains for a last hurrah at summer's end, this festive celebration may be their last as a family unit. Instead of packing for next summer's vacation, they may find themselves packing for property division and divorce.

Figuring divorce into an estate plan

When most people think of estate planning, divorce is not a part of the picture. For most people, the estate planning phase is when they try to ensure that their spouse will get most of their assets. In some cases, however, it is necessary to try to keep the spouse from getting them. In Florida, as in other states, special care should be taken when divorce figures into an estate plan.
