How should I address a failing marriage and high debt?

If you and your spouse are struggling with serious financial problems and also planning to get divorced, you are not alone. Many couples in Florida find themselves facing these issues as money can be a common issue in many marital challenges.

However, it is important that people who make this agreement understand the need to use a qualified domestic relations order.

Florida residents who have watched the negotiations around and eventual passage of a new tax bill may still be trying to figure out how it will impact them. For some, the changes might be positive. For others, the changes could be dramatically negative. Spouses who get divorced and may have to pay their former partners spousal support could well find themselves in this latter category.
