Divorce can be a rough and painful experience. Some divorces are relatively quick, beginning and ending during a matter of months. Unfortunately, other divorces can take years to settle. Why the difference? Often, it’s a matter of money, and specifically alimony.
Many couples go through the difficult struggle of conceiving a child. Often times, they turn to medicine to help them conceive, and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one of the most widely-used scientific procedures to help couples with their fertility struggles. As part of the IVF process, typically couples create multiple viable embryos at once. These embryos are then stored in case the couple would like them for future use. While IVF works for many and brings joy to the lives of couples every day, IVF can bring confusion and anger to separating couples. When a couple decides to separate and still has viable frozen embryos, what happens to the embryos? Who makes that call?
Most people think that divorce happens only in young couples. However, “silver divorces” are incredibly common, especially in a state like Florida that has a large senior citizen population.

We are living in the age of the smart home, where we can use our remote and voice activated devices to control many aspects of our home.

However, smart home devices also monitor and record much of what we do and where we are without our even realizing it. Could this affect your family law case?

If you’ve made the decision to seek a divorce, you probably have plenty of questions. One that our Florida divorce clients often ask us is whether there are legal consequences to moving out of their marital home before their divorce is finalized. Once one partner files for a divorce, it is common for at least one partner to want to leave the marital home to mitigate further conflict or for their emotional or mental health. However, leaving the marital home is a decision that should be undertaken only after you have carefully considered its potential implications upon your divorce.
