Florida legislature considering changes to alimony system

Every Miami resident experiences a great deal of change in his or her personal life over the years. While change is a normal part of life, it is also an ordinary occurrence in the legal system. On occasion, these two can converge, as personal changes are impacted by the changes in the law.

Every Miami resident is unique. These individual differences mean that what works for one person may not work for another. This is readily apparent in family law cases, as each case involves different circumstances that can lead to a different application of the law.

Guardians ad Litem in Florida child custody disputes

In divorces and custody disputes, it seems that every party gets a lawyer except the children.

Do you know the value of all your marital property in a divorce?

From a very young age, many Miami residents are taught the importance of sharing. Unfortunately, some may not get that message even well into adulthood, as often appears to be the case when Miami residents are going through a divorce. It is not uncommon for the other party to try to hide assets, minimize the value of certain assets or engage in other tactics that have the effect of giving that party a greater share of the marital assets.
