So your divorce settlement is approved: what next?

In this blog, we often discuss the many details you must consider when you are working on your divorce agreement. We have talked about uncovering assets, reviewing prenuptial agreements and discussing the details of your split with your kids. There is a lot to do and a lot to examine during this time, and finally reaching an agreement can be an enormous source of relief.

Unfortunately, the relief you may be feeling may be short-lived. Even after your divorce is finalized and you and your ex have gone your separate ways, you can still run into some complications. 

As explained in this FindLaw article, your divorce settlement will typically include resolutions for issues including property division, child custody and post-marital financial support. However, problems related to these matters can arise weeks, months or years down the road.

  • Property division: Once property has been divided, chances are that few if any changes will be necessary. However, you can still face problems when it comes to filing taxes, enforcing estate plans, collecting benefits, paying off shared debts and splitting income earned from the sale of shared properties.
  • Child custody: Ideally, every parent would comply with an established parenting plan, but in reality, parents don't always do this. Further, adjustments and changes can be unavoidable. Sometimes these hiccups can put parental rights in jeopardy or require a formal change to the existing parenting plan.
  • Financial support: Having to make payments to someone to whom you are no longer married can be unpleasant, but it is necessary for many people across Florida. However, people fall behind on or miss payments over time. In some cases, agreements need to be enforced by the courts, and there are certain events that will warrant modification or trigger cancellation of these payments.

While these matters may not be as contentious or complex as they may have been initially during a divorce, they can still create some problems. As is the case with any divorce-related matter, you should know that you have legal options, and support is available to help you resolve these issues so that you can continue staying focused on yourself and your future.
