Paternity issues not always a simple matter for unmarried dads

More and more people are choosing to delay marriage, or are simply avoiding the institution altogether. This approach could simplify many Florida breakups, but not for couples who choose to have one or more children together. In such cases, unmarried fathers can face an uphill battle when it comes to establishing and protecting their paternity rights.

Women paying more alimony than in previous years

According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, many attorneys have noted an increase in the number of women paying spousal support. That's a sharp departure from the norm in place decades ago, when men traditionally paid alimony and women were almost always the recipients. The shifting statistics suggest great things about the ability of women to advance in the workplace, although many Florida women are surprised to learn that they will be required to pay alimony after a divorce.

Divorcing when you own a business together

You and your spouse may have found it a delight to work side by side in your business or professional practice. On the other hand, it may have been a challenge from the first day. Whether you began your Florida business together, or one of you inherited it or established it before you married, you are now business partners. While this may have simplified many areas of your life, it is certainly a complication now that you are preparing to divorce.

Unpaid alimony leads to discovery of fraud against NFL player

When an individual falls behind on spousal support or child support, it's not always intentional. An example is found in the case of Robert Meachem, former NFL player.
