Most popular divorce disputes.

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

There are some issues in divorce cases that are typical problems common to many cases.  The biggest fight issue of all is custody, which, incidentally, is now called “parenting plan” or “time sharing”.  

Fighting over the kids is not always on its face about the children.  But rather it is often about the child support check which goes to the parent who has the children most of the time.  This is “free” money as in the recipient spouse does not have to pay taxes on it as income.

Another often disputed issue is alimony.  Husbands (usually) don’t want to pay any alimony on a monthly basis.  They would rather give the wife a bigger portion of the marital assets, or incur a greater portion of the marital debt to avoid writing that monthly alimony check.  It is psychological.

A third highly disputed divorce issue is relocation with the children.  Again often this is about the money, not the kids.  As in time sharing disputes, these hardly ever settle.  Divorcing couples leave it up to the judge to decide which parent is more correct, the one moving away or the one staying.  What it really boils down to is the best intersts of the child.

Valuation of a business or one’s income if self employed are also hotly disputed issues.  If you or your spouse encounter these specific issues in your divorce, chances are you need independent divorce attorneys to help and advise you.

    Parents, do keep in mind that whatever decisions you make regarding your divorce, you must put your children’s best interest first. Ask yourself, “What will my kids says to me when they are grown about the way I handled the divorce?” Will they be angry and resentful or understanding and appreciative of the decisions you made?
