There are various ways around the country to separate from a spouse. Most people are familiar with divorce, annulment and legal separation. However, the state of Florida does not formally recognize legal separation. Instead, couples will need to file for a "limited divorce," if that is the path they wish to pursue.
Ending up in a situation where criminal accusations are brought against someone can be intimidating. When the charges involve allegations of murder, the predicament can seem even more insurmountable. However, even when serious charges like murder are involved, parties have the ability to create a criminal defense.
Many Florida parents' main goal is to help their children grow up happy and healthy. Of course, major life changes can often hinder the process of reaching that goal, and divorce can have particular impacts on children. However, that impact does not necessarily mean that parents have to stay together for the kids. Instead, they may want to help them through the process as best as possible.
