Being detail oriented during divorce is critical

The dissolution of a marriage is never an easy process, no matter how amicable two divorcing spouses may be. Unfortunately, the challenges associated with divorce oftentimes do not stop, even after the divorce has been finalized. A common post-divorce mistake that couples make in Florida is that they become disengaged from relevant details of the breakup.

Dealing with a divorce proceeding's details can understandably be exhausting. This is especially true if the divorce process is complicated. However, these details are important to stay on top of, even after the marital breakup, if two spouses have agreed to share costs for their children -- for example, the costs of extracurricular activities and physician visits.

Even if one of the spouses is completely responsible for these costs, the other spouse might be the one attending the soccer games or doctor appointments, for example. Whoever ends up paying the bills related to these activities would benefit from maintaining a detailed record of the activity costs paid for and then request appropriate reimbursement from his or her ex-spouse. However, an easier approach may be for the spouse who is responsible for making payments to set up each payment on an automatic withdrawal plan. In addition, it may behoove the recipient spouse to accept such payments in an easy-to-track form -- not services or cash, for instance.

The divorce process can certainly be overwhelming and stressful. However, if two spouses are willing to work out their divorce issues at the negotiation table or through mediation rather than traditional litigation, they may make the process a little easier to manage. An attorney can provide the guidance needed to navigate even the most complex marital breakups in Florida.
