New law provides more divorce options in Florida

When you hear the word divorce what is the first thing you think of? Many people would say fighting, anger or a drawn-out legal battle. Collaboration is probably not at the top of the list. Thanks to a new Florida law, however, collaboration and divorce may soon be more commonly thought of together.

Social media hiatus may be helpful during Florida divorce

When an individual faces a big change in his or her life, it is common in this day and age to head to social media to discuss the topic. However, if the topic is divorce, Florida residents may wish to think twice before posting any scathing remarks or photos of their get-away destinations. Because social media creates a permanent log of a user's life, he or she could be potentially creating evidence to be used during divorce proceedings.

Multitude of decisions may make up divorce proceedings in Florida

There are many factors that Florida residents need to consider if they are thinking about filing for divorce. They may have already given attention to some aspects, such as how they would like child custody and/or property division proceedings to go. However, there are steps that parties need to take before the divorce even gets under way. 

When adult children divorce, beware of 'overparenting'

A new term made it into the dictionary in 2011 -- "helicopter parent." Most everyone in Florida reading this has probably heard it. It describes a parent who is so involved in their child's life that they are downright obsessive about making sure nothing bad ever happens to them. Experts agree it's not a good thing.


In Florida, the court will not have jurisdiction (legal authority) to enter a dissolution of marriage or divorce until at least one of the two parties has been a resident of Florida for six months. This means that if a couple moves here and decides that the marriage is over, they will have to delay filing their petition until after they have been here six months. This is a factual question and a false residency affidavit will invalidate any court order entered in reliance upon it.
