What constitutes the best interests of the child?

Divorce proceedings can be long and complex due to the procedures followed for divvying up assets accumulated during a marriage; however, the process can double or triple in complexity when children are involved. When issues of custody (now referred to as timesharing) fuel a tug-of-war mentality, parents may feel that obtaining sole parental rights is equivalent to "winning." Should discussions over timesharing become contentious, neither parent may retain an objective perspective on the well-being of the child. It is for this reason that child timesharing and responsibility decisions are often rendered in court.

Divorce lessons from the Pitt-Jolie split

Florida fans of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have heard some of the speculation whirling around their divorce. It has been speculated that the two had a prenuptial agreement since both have been married before and each brought their own considerable assets into the marriage. However, even with a prenuptial agreement, the process of untangling financially could take months.
