Can you make your ex-spouse pay your children's school fees?

Your kids go to a high-end school, and they have lots of extracurricular activities. When you and your spouse decided to divorce, you knew that the divorce would be a strain, but what you didn't expect was just how much of a strain it was going to be.

This year, you're the primary caregiver. You get child support, but even with your own income, that support isn't enough to cover everything your kids need. Regardless of that, your ex-spouse is refusing to give any more compensation to you, even if it's a portion of your children's school fees. He thinks the private school and expensive hobbies are unnecessary and refuses to pay.

How can you track communication with an aggressive ex-spouse?

As you move through divorce, you may find that your soon-to-be ex-spouse is more aggressive and disrespectful than they were in the past. It might become frustrating to talk to them, because you know that every instance will result in a fight.

Fortunately, there are a few ways that you can track your communications and show the court the kind of negative behavior that your ex-spouse displays. If you have children, this can be particularly helpful if there are problems with custody or the way that your ex-spouse is interacting with them when speaking about you.

Does a postnuptial agreement make sense for you?

When a Florida couple gets married, they are not thinking about what will happen in the future if they divorce. Most people enter a marriage thinking they will be together long-term, but statistics indicate that this is not true for about half of all marriages. For this reason, many couples choose to draft a prenuptial agreement before they walk down the aisle.

If you did not draft a prenuptial agreement before you married, you still have an option by which you can protect your legal and financial interests. A postnuptial agreement can offer you many of the same benefits you will find with a prenuptial agreement. Both of these documents allow you to decide how you will want to approach the property division process in case of a divorce in the future.

3 tips for managing a stressful divorce

You and your spouse have been going through a divorce, and one thing has been made abundantly clear: They don't want you to be comfortable and don't want to agree with you. This conflicted case is frustration and at times, overwhelming. You don't want to fight, but they aren't making things easy.

Fortunately, there are some ways to manage the stress of a divorce like this, so you can move forward with your life despite their best efforts to frustrate you.

Be reasonable to help your divorce case in court

You were at home washing dishes when your husband opened the front door, walked over to the room and sat down at the kitchen table. You could tell something was wrong, but you weren't sure what was going on.

After a long conversation, you found out that your husband had cheated on you and was remorseful about his affair. While you appreciated his honesty, you didn't feel that you could ever trust him again. In your mind, the only solution was divorce.

Hotel bookings down during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach

If you're looking to construct a hotel in Daytona Beach, you may want to hear more about the low bookings in October this year. Daytona Beach hosts Biketoberfest each year, but hoteliers have reported lower-than-typical bookings in 2019.

Part of the reason, it's believed, is that the impact of Hurricane Dorian is still present. Annually, tens of thousands of motorcyclists come to the signature event, but fewer than normal are expected to arrive in 2019.

Should you work with a business law attorney?

Business law is a general term that encompasses all laws that determine how to both form and run a business. Business laws set up rules that all businesses have to follow.

When you're ready to set up a business, you'll need to understand business law. This is why many people starting businesses work with attorneys to do so. An attorney can get you started off right so that you have an appropriate understanding of the kind of business you're running, the structure of the business, the paperwork you have to file, how you'll pay your federal taxes and other important information.

Addressing change orders construction contract negotiations

Whether you recently started a construction company or already own an established business, you are probably already aware of the fact that property owners may want to make changes in the middle of the project. When this happens, you need to react quickly and efficiently in order to minimize the potential for litigation, time delays and budget concerns that accompany these requests.

Change orders are a fact of life in the construction business, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't plan for them in order to protect yourself and your business. Addressing them in your construction contracts could prevent you from experiencing the adverse effects that often come with these requests.

Get an attorney to help with real estate closings

There are many reasons why you might want to work with a real estate attorney when you are buying a home. One of the best reasons is because of their skill level when it comes to closing.

Your attorney is skilled in real estate and can help make the entire process seem clearer to you. They are also familiar with contracts and paperwork related to buying a home, so that they can help you know what you're signing and reading without leaving you feeling confused.

Don't fall victim to these contract myths

When you sign a contract, you have to be cautious. If you fall victim to any myths about contracts, you could find yourself struggling in the future.

For example, one common myth is that it's simple to draft a contract. While it's not the most difficult thing to do, there are laws that have to be followed. Drafting the right contract is done with skill that is honed through experience and training -- the kind of training your attorney will have. Here are a few other myths that you shouldn't fall for, either.
