Common Reasons for Divorce

There are countless reasons why married couples decide to get divorced. Here are a few of the most common.

  • Financial Issues: Money is the root of many marital issues. If you and your spouse can't agree on basic budgetary matters, you may be better off on your own.
  • Infidelity: Many couples manage to stay together when faced with infidelity. For others, however, the emotional damage is too great.
  • Irreconcilable Differences: After living together for an extended period, some couples discover that they simply aren't right for each other. If you have difficulty finding common ground with your spouse, divorce may be the best solution.

Important Divorce Considerations

Divorce is a notoriously difficult process. However, divorce can be relatively painless if you and your spouse are properly prepared. Here are a few of the issues you may encounter.

  • Property Division: Florida law provides for an equitable distribution of marital property. This doesn't mean that each spouse receives half of the couple's combined property; rather, each spouse receives an amount that his commensurate with his or her contribution to the marriage.
  • Child Custody: If you and your spouse have children, you'll need to determine your custody arrangement. You might choose sole custody, joint custody, or rotating custody. It's also important to agree on a visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent.
  • Spousal Support: If you have a significantly higher income than your spouse, you may need to pay him or her spousal support, or alimony. This is to ensure that your spouse can maintain his or her quality of life after the marriage.
