Military divorce will lead to significant tax changes

When Florida service members are going through divorce, often the last thing on their minds is the manner in which their tax scenario will change once that process is finalized. However, in order to make the best possible decisions during a military divorce, it is important to consider a number of financial matters, including tax obligations. Working through the outcomes of various decisions can help spouses make choices that are in line with their long term goals.

Child custody dispute led to parental abduction

Few things are more stressful to Florida parents than a bitter custody battle. That is especially true when one parent feels strongly that his or her child would be better off having no connection to the other parent.

This, however, is always a poor decision, and can result in criminal charges and a full loss of child custody rights.

One benefit of an annulment is the elimination of any claim of spousal support by either party.
