Dealing with depression at the same time as a divorce

Divorce and mental health are strongly linked. Those in unhappy marriages may be unhappy in the relationship because either themselves or their spouse is suffering from mental health issues. Conversely, a toxic marriage or issues in a relationship can lead to mental health issues. The stress of a divorce and the life changes that it leads to can also increase feelings of anxiety and depression in many.

Can you cash out your portion of a 401k in a divorce?

If you are like many of those entering into divorce proceedings in Tavares, one element that you were not prepared to deal with was dividing up your ex-spouse’s 401k. In actuality, their entire 401k is not subject to property division, but rather only those contributions made during your marriage (as they were likely made from marital income). Depending on the length of time that you were married, your portion of those contributions could be significant. Such an infusion of funds would not be a great benefit as you transition into your post-divorce life. Yet are you allowed to withdraw them right away?

Gray divorce and poverty rates

Most people who live in Florida understand that marriage is both an emotional and a financial arrangement. That, in turn, makes divorce both an emotional and financial experience.

How will my taxes change after a divorce?

If you and your spouse in Florida have decided to get separated and are now looking at filing for divorce, there will be many aspects of your final settlement that may have serious financial implications for you. You will want to evaluate each one carefully before coming to any final decisions. Income taxes are one of the things that require a good understanding before you sign your divorce decree.

Your debts in a divorce

If you are like a lot of people in Florida, when you hear references to the property division portion of a divorce settlement, you think about how assets are split up between the spouses.

The agreements that you make with your partner about how to assign debt responsibility may well impact your choices regarding asset division.
