Divorce can bring more grief than expected

Ending a marriage can affect each person differently. Some Florida residents may feel some sense of relief after ending an unhappy relationship, but other emotions can be mixed in as well. It can be difficult to know exactly what a divorce might entail because each case is different and because some aspects are not talked about as much.

It may surprise some people to realize that divorce can begin a grieving process. Even if parties wanted to end the relationship, they may still feel grief over the loss of love, the loss of dreams for the future involving a spouse, loss of companionship and much more. As a result, people often need time to process those feelings and grieve for those losses more than they anticipated.

Likely child abuse charge has woman considering criminal defense

The potential consequences of certain actions may not always seem apparent to some individuals. On the other hand, they may know the consequences but feel indifferent to the situation. Of course, when the repercussions of those actions come to fruition and a criminal defense is needed, people may see the situation differently.

One Florida woman may be rethinking her actions after recently being arrested for child abuse. Apparently, the woman works as a teacher, and when a child was running his hand over a bulletin board, the woman allegedly shoved his face, causing it to hit the wall. The impact then caused a tooth to be knocked out of the boy's mouth and busted his lip. 

What warrants an assault or battery charge?

Anger is an emotion that may cause you to lose your cool. You may become angry at an offhanded comment from a stranger or at a threat of harm. When you fail to control yourself amid such a sweeping emotion, you may find yourself facing criminal charges.

Florida law does not lump assault and battery together. While these two terms often go hand in hand, they do not warrant the same type of charge in all circumstances. While someone may assault someone, battery may never happen and vice versa. To ensure that you understand these charges, take a look at how the police determine which one applies to any given situation.

Expecting a spouse to change may contribute to divorce

Most Florida residents enter into relationships wanting them to work out. They may overlook flaws because they love their significant other and think that they can either change their future spouse or that their spouse will change on his or her own. Of course, life does not typically work out that way, and many relationships end in divorce because people did not give their relationships necessary assessments.

Even if individuals love each other, marriage changes lives. It means that a person will have to contend with annoying spousal habits, problems with the in-laws and the changes in financial affairs that marriage brings about. Unfortunately, far too many people think that they and their in-laws will start to get along after the marriage or that their spouse will stop those annoying habits but do not see those results.

Criminal defense on tap for 2 facing multiple drug charges

Criminal charges do not have to be the end of a person's life as he or she knows it. Though legal trouble can certainly cause a number of setbacks, anyone accused of a crime in the United States has the right to create and present a criminal defense against the allegations. It can certainly be a dark and difficult time in a person's life, but with the right help and information, individuals may be able to work toward the best possible outcomes.

Two individuals in Florida are undoubtedly hoping to reach favorable outcomes after recently being taken into custody. According to reports, authorities were looking for a 28-year-old man for whom they had an arrest warrant. They located the man at a rented Airbnb apartment and went to execute the warrant. The man reportedly opened the door for the officers before running.

Concerned about getting divorced? A fair prenup can help

Moving in together, getting married, having children and other major events can happen during a relationship. Though these events are often ones to look forward to, they can also come with potential risks. For instance, individuals who are intending to get married could also one day get divorced, which is why many Florida residents choose to prepare.

One way that individuals could prepare for this type of scenario is to create a prenuptial agreement. However, prenups need to be fair and enforceable. In some cases, one person may create an agreement and expect the other person to simply sign it. In such a case, it is important that the person being handed the agreement thoroughly reviews it and considers his or her own best interests before signing.

Driving under the influence charges stem from fatal crash

Sometimes people do not think about how their actions could impact others. While some actions may have little effect on another person, others could prove life-changing for everyone involved. For instance, if a person is suspected of driving under the influence and a car accident occurs, many lives could be affected.

It was recently reported that one man in Florida is currently facing criminal charges relating to a fatal car accident. The crash took place in February and involved two vehicles. Apparently, a man was driving south in the northbound lanes of a roadway at approximately 1:45 a.m. when his vehicle collided head-on with another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle was reported as being a 39-year-old father.

How to break the news of a divorce to children

Despite a decline in the nationwide rate, divorce is still a highly prevalent part of modern American society. This may be why two Florida lawmakers introduced a bill that would make it a requirement in the state for engaged couples to read materials about how to have a healthy marriage. That way, people know what they will get into once they tie the knot. 

Even though the lawmakers have good intentions, divorce will continue to impact people from all walks of life. For the time being, parents just need to know how to help navigate their children through this difficult time. It is critical to know how to properly break the news to your children so that they can begin adjusting to this new way of life. 

Getting even is not the goal of an effective divorce

When people are having a hard time, it can be easy for their judgment to be clouded. As a result, they may end up regretting certain decisions they make later because they did not fully think through them. When it comes to divorce, making hasty decisions can cause a number of problems, so avoiding that issue is wise.

If Florida residents are worried about making the wrong decisions in these circumstances, they may want to set themselves on the right path by keeping their emotions out of the process as best as possible. Though they may feel hurt, angry, frustrated, disappointed or any number of other emotions, working through those feelings outside the courtroom is smart. Finding a way to handle those emotions, like getting a hobby or seeing a therapist, could help them remain realistic while in the courtroom.

Communicating about child support may help parents

Money can be a touchy subject for many Florida residents. It is a common reason that married couples fight, and even after individuals get divorced, financial obligations like child support can keep them tied. In some cases, making support payments can seem frustrating, but it is often a necessary obligation.

When making support payments, it is typically helpful to maintain open communication with the other parent. It is not always easy, but if there is a change in circumstances regarding one parent's finances, it is likely that the other parent will find out one way or another. For instance, if the paying parent gets a raise, it could mean that support payments could increase. If a parent tries to hide this information to avoid an increase in the payment amount, he or she could end up having to pay back support when the information does come to light.
