How do we tell my kids we're getting divorced?

Divorce is such an adult topic. You and your spouse have talked it over repeatedly in the last year, and you know where you stand. The relationship is over. You know why, at least a degree, and you have made your peace with it. You knew it may not last forever when it started, and you agree that it's best for you to move on.

When friends decide to divorce in Florida, it can have a wide-ranging impact throughout a social group. While many have observed that groups of people seem to divorce around the same time, research has backed up the fact that this is not just an anecdotal phenomenon. Researchers at Brown University, Harvard University and the University of California at San Diego have shown that the social contagion of divorce is a real factor frequently seen in groups of friends or social circles.

The different kinds of child support cases

Parents in Florida who are starting child support cases may find the system to be confusing at first. There are four different categories of child support scenarios that are designated with specific abbreviations. Understanding the different types may help parents to gain a better understanding of the system.

When older Florida couples get divorced, it may be less contentious. This is because children may have already left the home, and it may also be because both parties acknowledge that they have outgrown each other. However, it is still necessary to find a way to divide marital property such as a 401(k) or other retirement assets. These must be split in a specific manner when a divorce takes place.
