Inheriting money: will you also inherit problems in a divorce?

In a divorce, financial matters can be complicated, and heated and complex disputes can arise over matters pertaining to property division. These issues are particularly difficult if there are complex or unusual assets at stake, such as an inheritance received during the course of the marriage.

The importance of a QDRO in a divorce

When a Florida couple gets a divorce, there might be a retirement account to divide. Depending upon the type of account, the process may require a complex document called a Qualified Domestic Relations Order. It can end up being costly, and the parties might want to work with a certified divorce financial analyst.

State disbursement units and child support

If Florida parents who have gone through a divorce have received a formal child support order, this may mean that payments will go through the state disbursement unit. Payments are collected from the non-custodial parent's employer, and the SDU then has two business days in which to disburse the payments to the custodial parent unless there are arrears that are in dispute.

Protecting a child from an ex's substance abuse

Custody cases are delicate and complex, and they can become even more so when there is an issue of substance abuse by one of the parents. Florida residents who are in this situation might wonder if and when the court needs to get involved if they want to protect their child from an ex-spouse's substance abuse struggles.

Preventing child custody disputes regarding vacation

Florida divorced parents who share physical custody of their children may encounter complications when it comes to scheduling vacations. There may not be a custody order in place, or the existing order may not provide guidance for how to handle vacations. Whatever the case, there are some steps parents can take to prevent child custody issues and disagreements related to vacations.
