Bitcoin assets in a divorce

People in Florida who are getting a divorce may need to divide property such as a home or a bank account. However, one person in a couple might also own assets in the form of bitcoins.

Marriage dissolution and the holiday season

"We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy divorce," is a holiday greeting that many Florida couples would rather not hear, but it is a reality for those who filed for dissolution of marriage before December. Even an amicable divorce filing may not be finalized before the end of the year due to reduced staffing at the county courthouses, and thus it is up to each spouse to deal with the prospect of spending the holidays with their divorce looming.

Tips for recognizing parental alienation syndrome

Some parents in Florida might have to contend with parental alienation syndrome. This can happen in any kind of custody and visitation arrangement and involves one parent turning the child against the other parent. It may occur when one parent suffers from a personality disorder, so a parent divorcing a person who has been diagnosed with personality disorders, particularly narcissistic or borderline, may want to be especially vigilant.

Retirement savings are a critical asset in divorce

Retirement savings are a critical asset to many people in Florida, including those going through the end of a marriage. Divorce can carry with it an array of strains, including the visible emotional and psychological stresses caused by a split. However, another important element in a divorce is the financial aspect and the division of property between the spouses. There are many types of marital property that can be subject to distribution in a divorce, from retirement savings accounts to investments or real estate.
