Five Common Myths About Divorce in Miami

Countless people throughout Miami are currently involved in unhappy marriages and contemplating divorce. If you have never been through a divorce, it is easy to turn to friends or relatives who have gone through the process. However, not all divorces in Miami are the same. In fact, each case has its own unique set of circumstances, depending on the parties involved. To get the best advice, it is important to speak with an experienced and knowledgeable Aventura family law attorney with a successful track record of representing both men and women.

Florida family law can be complicated. Even the most experienced Miami divorce lawyer must constantly review and keep up with changes in the laws and statutes. It is also easy for many people to get the wrong idea about divorce based on misinformation from their family and friends. Here are some of the most common myths about divorce in Miami.

  1. Do Not Move:  Many people are led to believe that moving out of their house can hurt their divorce settlement. The truth is nothing really changes. Whether you stay or leave, the property will remain a marital asset and the mortgage will remain as a marital liability. As long as the home was purchased during the marriage, the court will divide the marital property.
  2. Divorce is an Acrimonious Process: We have all heard horror stories about divorce and how it can ruin lives. But not every marriage ends with bad or hurtful feelings. In fact, many divorced couples even become friends long after splitting up and move on with their lives. In many cases, both parties decide it is in their best interests to discontinue to the marriage for a variety of reasons. However, it is important to avoid any angry confrontations with your soon-to-be former spouse.
  3. My Children Will Be Fine:  Divorce does not only affect the husband and wife. Children are often its biggest victims. It can leave deep emotional scars that can last for years. It is important for both parents to be aware of the changes in the lives of their children during divorce. If you spot any significant behavioral changes, it is important for your child to receive professional help.
  4. You Do Not Require an Attorney:  Nothing could be further from the truth than this myth. Nobody should have to go through a divorce alone. Simply acquiring a self-help packet does not properly prepare anyone for attaining a proper settlement. Divorce is not a template that follows the exact same set of rules. It is important to have a legal professional to guide you through the process.
  5. Co-Parenting Does Not Work: Effective time-sharing is important for the development of your child. Both parents need to make the effort to do what is best in each child’s best interests. Remember, your job as a parent does not end with divorce. Just as marriage requires hard work, so does divorce.
