Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about couples who decide to end their marriage and anticipate remaining friendly during and after the proceedings. However, not everyone has the luxury of knowing that his or her spouse will "play fair" in a high asset divorce. Even if a Florida resident is fairly confident that the proceedings will go smoothly, it is better to be prepared.
When a divorce is filed, a temporary restraining order is automatically put into place. This restricts the parties from conducting certain financial transactions during the proceedings. Therefore, if a Florida resident is not financially prepared, money could become an issue. This could be an unnecessary distraction during settlement negotiations that might cause hasty decisions to be made.
