How can you keep your entire 401k?

You put a great amount of individual effort into your employment in Hernando County; why, then, is your ex-spouse entitled to a portion of the benefits that come from that effort (such as your 401k)? First, it should be remembered that the money that funds your 401k account comes from your employment income, of which any earned during your marriage is considered a marital asset. Thus, it should come as little surprise then that your 401k is also considered a shared asset. Yet your ex-spouse's interest in it is limited to only those contributions made during your marriage. 

The end of marriage and health problems

When a couple splits up, they may be dealing with many different challenges. Those who bring their marriage to an end may be struggling with child custody issues, or they may have concerns about what will happen to their finances during and after the divorce. Moreover, people may be going through other challenges which can make their divorce even tougher, such as health issues. From a cancer diagnosis to immobility following a car crash or a heart attack, there are all sorts of health concerns those going through a divorce may have, and it is especially important for people in this position to work through their divorce carefully.

Divorce dispute ends in shooting

Many in Hernando County may currently be experiencing domestic abuse at the hands of a spouse. Some might say that those in such situations should simply leave. Those suffering from such violence, however, may find that leaving is not as easy as many outsiders may think. A common element that often accompanies domestic violence is threats of escalating abuse of a victim ever tries to leave. Abusers will often direct such threats at the victims, their families and friends, or (worse yet) even their children. Thus, abuse victims live in fear that their is nothing that can be done to help free them from their marriages. 

Who gets the pet after a divorce?

Pets are like beloved members of the family to most people. That’s why deciding who gets custody of the pets after a divorce can be so emotionally trying. It’s best for you and your ex to come to an agreement on your own, and PetMD offers the following information on how to do so.

Splitting up or paying off debt when you divorce

Couples in Florida who get separated and plan to divorce know they will have to go through the process of splitting up their assets. In addition, they will also have to decide how to split up any joint debt. This may not always be an easy task, especially if the couple may be in need of serious debt relief help such as via a bankruptcy. Understanding how debt is viewed during and after a divorce is important prior to making any final decisions.

Is your ex-spouse a Disneyland parent?

If you have children with your ex-spouse, then your divorce in Hernando County is hardly the end of your association. You must continue to work together in the raising of your kids. When parents divorce, the temptation is ever-present to be known as "the fun parent." While you want your children to enjoy their time with you, order and discipline also must be maintained. If you are finding that you are the one enforcing rules and expectations while you ex-spouse lets your kids do whatever they want during their custody time, then you have a "Disneyland Parent" on your hands. 

Couple finalizes divorce via social media app

The concepts of marriage and divorce in Hernando County remain the same; it may instead be the complications that couples experience that have changed. As technology essentially makes the world smaller, people are allowed to engage with each other socially in ways totally different than those witnessed 50, 25 or even 10 years ago. Should it come as a shock, then, that divorce proceedings have also been affected by technology. Where legal requirements used to slow proceedings down due to limited access to records, lack of electronic resources and even participant availability, new technologies may actually serve to facilitate cases being resolved more quickly. 

Maintaining a strong relationship with your kids after divorce

For any couple working through a divorce, daily life can be tough and there could be a considerable amount of uncertainty. However, parents often have an especially hard time when their marriage is coming to an end. Not only do some worry about child support and how their life will change financially (raising children can be incredibly expensive, of course), but some are completely unsure of how custody will be split up or whether they will even be able to visit their children after the divorce is finalized.
