Advantages Of A Collaborative Settlement

Florida recently passed the Collaborative Law Process Act, which establishes a formal regulation for using the method of collaboration in divorce settlements. Using this process to negotiate a divorce agreement is advantageous because it often takes less time and money than the standard method involving court litigation. Here are some other advantages of pursuing a collaborative divorce.

How Bitcoin can complicate a divorce

Florida residents who have invested in Bitcoin may own a valuable commodity. Therefore, it stands to reason that a spouse may want a portion of its value when it comes time to end a marriage. However, it may not be clear-cut as to how Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency should be divided. For instance, a spouse may claim that he or she is entitled to the value of the currency today.

What to do about the holidays after divorce with children

The holidays may be a difficult time for parents and children in Florida after a divorce. However, it is important for parents to remember that the focus should be on the children and the family, not on the former spouses. Moving back and forth between their parents' households can be tough for children. They may struggle to understand the changes in their lives even though they know their parents still love them.

How to spot and prevent parental alienation

Parents in Florida and elsewhere are ideally looking out for the best interest of their children after a divorce. However, there are times when they try to use their children to punish their former spouses. In some cases of parental alienation, the manipulating parent will convince the child that he or she is the one responsible for acting out against the other parent.

Co-parenting truths

When parents divorce in Florida, the whole family is deeply affected. This is true even if the divorce is the best possible outcome, such as in cases where abuse or addiction are significant factors. While the adults are often trying to process legitimate grief, hurt and trauma, the reality is that the children are the most important priority at this time.
