Don't ignore your traffic tickets in Florida

Florida is a destination where tourists are said to "go on vacation and leave on probation." While it's true that police and prosecutors won't turn a blind eye to lawless behavior from those visiting from out of state, minor transgressions like traffic tickets typically won't land anyone behind bars.

The necessity of prenups

Florida residents who are planning to get married and have children should consider completing a prenuptial agreement before getting married, particularly if one spouse plans to remain at home to raise the children. If a divorce occurs, it can be very difficult for the stay-at-home parent to reintegrate in the workforce. Although custodial parents are likely to be awarded some type of child support, that financial support will end when the children become 18 years old. Having a prenup in place that specifies the financial responsibilities of both parents can help ensure that the stay-at-home parent will have some long-term financial security after a divorce.

Hopelessness can be the biggest factor in predicting divorce

Residents of Sarasota, Florida, and across the nation may wonder how to tell if their marriage may be headed toward divorce. Those struggling in their marriages may find it beneficial to evaluate their relationship and search for certain factors that serve as signs.

An overview of child custody proceedings

Florida parents who are going to court for child custody should prepare as thoroughly as possible. This may include bringing a babysitter or teacher who can testify to an individual's ability to be a good parent. It is also a good idea to think through potential questions that a judge may ask and have answers to those questions ready ahead of time.
