The process of seeking divorce in the state of Florida is generally the same for everyone who wants to use the courts to end their marriages. The parties to the actions must meet residency requirements, must fulfill their obligations of submitting notices and pleadings regarding the end of their marriages to the courts and their partners and must disclose all of their assets so that their property may be divided. Though the format of a divorce may mirror that of another couple, the contents of every divorce are diverse and unique.
Like other contracts, prenuptial agreements must be reviewed and agreed to by both of the parties who sign off on their terms. Tampa couples may enter into prenuptial agreements before getting married to spell out their financial expectations during their marriages as well as in the event of their divorces. However, not every prenuptial agreement that is created will stand up in court. Many of the ways that a prenuptial agreement may be invalidated arise from one of the parties to it facing significant hardships.
Divorce rocks the foundation of a family held together by both parents. Children are the most susceptible to the negative consequences of divorce. The reason for this is because they naturally lack the understanding and maturity to see a permanent separation in a healthy way.
Divorce can be a stressful and emotional undertaking, but it does not always have to be an adversarial process. In Florida - a "no-fault" state in which wrongdoing need not be alleged by either party - remaining amicable can make the process smoother, quicker and easier to handle from a emotional/mental perspective. The first step to a good working relationship during divorce is maintaining open lines of communication.
