Questions Frequently Asked Before A Divorce

On Behalf of | Jun 2, 2022 | Divorce

Anyone in Florida who is considering whether or not to file for divorce is probably thinking through quite a few questions and scenarios. After all, the prospect of a post-divorce life may be a complete mystery for some people, especially if they have been married for many years. At our law firm, we know that many people have the same “frequently asked questions” about divorce – and we do our best to help provide relevant answers.

Answering your questions

For example, one of the most common questions many people have is about “fault” – as in, will the so-called “indiscretions” of one spouse become a factor in the divorce case? Well, each case is different, but Florida is what is called a “no-fault” state, which means neither spouse should expect favorable treatment just because the other brings up various types of conduct or reasons for the divorce. Many divorcing couples simply refer to “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce.

Another common question is: What should I do to prepare for a divorce? Again, each person and case are different, but it can be helpful to gather the appropriate documents, like tax forms and W-2s, and it can also help to set yourself up for a separate life by changing passwords on electronic accounts, starting a non-joint bank account and even pulling back on social media posts.
