Ending a marriage is often fraught with emotion and is never easy. In light of this, Florida residents need to make a concerted effort to put aside their emotions when it comes to dividing property in a divorce. Otherwise, going into settlement negotiations with emotions running high could end up costing a party in the end.

Many Florida couples approach settlement negotiations as ending the marriage. However, a more accurate description of what the divorce process is about is preparing for a future as a single person.
