Knowing a Florida divorce is right

Many couples who divorce in Florida may have known the exact moment their marriage was essentially over. It may have been after finding out a partner was having an affair, or if drugs and domestic violence were involved. Although many reach a breaking point, there are still so many who have no idea if they want to divorce, or if it is just a phase they are going through. There are a few easy steps to decide if divorce is the right thing for both of the partners.

Earning fathers' rights in a Florida courtroom

When a Florida couple considers a divorce, fathers' rights may number among the last things thought about. This is not on purpose, though, or out of lack of love for the children. It is typically because in the past, it was often assumed that the mother would keep the children -- leaving the father with court-ordered visitation. For many fathers, this may suffice, but many may want more time with their children and not be aware of the fathers' rights they have. If a father is interested in receiving more time with their children, it may be of interest to learn what not to do in the event of a divorce.

More Florida marriages end in divorce within a year

Divorce is a common event that couples experience. Most Florida marriages last approximately 14 years before the end, which may seem like a respectable length of time to try to work out marital issues. With that being said, however, there is a certain percentage of marriages that end in divorce within the first year. As most are aware, there really isn't a way to tell which way a marriage will go at the beginning, but there are some considerations couples can consider.

Florida prenuptial agreements do not address child custody

Getting a divorce is like getting married; it provides new beginnings, but it also requires some legal work. Obtaining a marriage license and discussing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be an important aspect -- not only when a couple gets married but also if the couple attempts to get a divorce. In Florida, a prenuptial agreement covers many issues, but it does not include anything about child custody. Understanding the ins and outs of a prenuptial agreement is important for both parties.
