QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
IS IT TRUE THAT THE LAW CHANGED AS TO CUSTODY AND THAT THE PARENTS WILL NOW HAVE TO HAVE SPLIT OR 50/50 CUSTODY.
This is a great misconception. There was a significant law change in regard to child custody and timesharing that took effect on October 1, 2008, but that law does not necessarily translate to equal time. The Court is looking to remove the fight over primary residential rights and now wants people to focus on how they will share time with the child. This is different from mandatory 50/50 time. The Court must still look to the best interest of the child to determine how time will be shared between the parents. To evaluate the specifics of your case contact your Tampa divorce attorney.
I am up-side-down or have negative equity in my home, how do we divide the property? If you owe more than your house is worth, the court will typically agree with any agreement that you and your spouse may decide upon. Options that have worked are that the property is treated as an asset and the mortgage is treated as a liability and each item is divided accordingly. Other times the property is sold and each side will pay a portion of the loss at closing. More often than not, the property will be either paid by one spouse that will continue to live in the home, or the house will be sold via short sale, where the bank will work with the parties and cover the loss.
