When to ask for exclusive use of the marital home:

Under no circumstances should a spouse stay in an abusive relationship and/or home. There is no good reason to stay...especially if you have kids! Don't let money be the reason that keeps you in an abusive home or relationship. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you can request the court for exclusive use of the home while litigation (your case) is pending.

What is equitable distribution?

Equitable distribution is the process in which the Court divides marital assets and liabilities during divorce proceedings. Florida Statute §61.075 defines this process and includes factors that the Court considers when determining whether property acquired during the marriage is martial or nonmarital.

Can child support payments be modified?

Yes. Florida law permits a modification in the amount of child support payments, provided that the party requesting for the modification shows that there is a substantial change in circumstances since the date of the order setting the amount.
