Protect Your Credit
By informing creditors of a dissolution of marriage and designating the party who will be responsible for certain debts in the future, a spouse may retain the ability to monitor for late payments. If payments on certain assets are not being made in a timely fashion a post divorce attorney in Florida may be able to seek a civil judgment to return the asset or impose penalties on the other party to ensure that your credit rating is not negatively impacted.
Florida statutes also require that both parties submit Financial Disclosure affidavits prior to asset distribution. Be sure to thoroughly review these documents with your Florida post divorce attorney.
Enforcing Child Support
Keep accurate records of child support payments so that if the other party is delinquent or often remits a late payment, you have a log of it.
Record Child Expenses
If you have the majority time share custody of any children, it is imperative to keep accurate records of their expenses. This will document what the actual costs of raising children in comparison to the support that you are receiving. This will also show where child support monies are being distributed in case it is ever called into question.
Tax Deductible Eligibility
It is important to consult with your attorney regarding the tax implications related to any changes in family law matters. For example, in cases with children, only one parent is permitted to take an exemption for a child dependent.
Child Custody and Time-Share Rights
Many clients can finalize or renegotiate timesharing (custody) rights with a Post Divorce Agreement. If circumstances have changed and you want more or less time with your child(ren), a post divorce attorney can advise you of your time sharing (custody) legal rights and may be able to reassess your child support arrangement as well. Many parents do not realize the intricacies of Florida Custody and Visitation laws, which permit separate time share agreements that can be entered into specifically for the holidays.
