No matter how old you are, a divorce is a huge upheaval in your life. In our previous blog post, we discussed how divorces later in life have special considerations. These divorces often come with more assets than divorces that occur earlier; however, even young people who are going through a divorce need to ensure they are protecting their future, too.
We know that a divorce is a difficult time. Even if you were the one who filed for the divorce, the uncertainty of what comes next might concern you. We are here to help you get answers to questions that you have about your options and rights. We are here to help you learn about how each step of the divorce process should work.
If you have a job that comes with a retirement plan, this plan is going to come up in the divorce. Knowing how to handle this means that you need to understand the Florida laws that govern how these types of assets must be divided.
Another special consideration of some divorces is how investments, including stocks and real estate, will be divided. These can pose some unique issues because the division might not be able to be exactly equal.
When possible, we work with you to negotiate the settlement that ends the divorce. Mediation can help you to be in a bit more control of what happens. You can decide what you want to stick to and what you are willing to negotiate on. From that point, we can work toward your goal the most efficient manner.
