Changing Family Law - Florida Judge Overturns Ban on Gay Marriage

On July 17, 2014 Circuit Judge Luis M. Garcia overturned the ban on Gay Marriage in Florida. The case was in the 16th Circuit which only encompasses Monroe County Florida. Therefore, this decision is not binding on any other trial court. In addition it is not binding on any other County Clerk.

Unusual Child Support Order

In family law, there are several consequences for not paying child support. An unusual sentence, at least in my opinion, was handed down and appealed in another state not Florida. The individual was actually sentenced on a crime and the court took the liberty of addressing back child support in the criminal case.

New Divorce law on Payable on Death accounts

A new law in divorce or dissolution of marriage cases will impact the payments of transfer on death assets on many divorces moving forward. This new law which went effect on July 1, 2012 addresses what happens when an account or asset has a provision to pay a beneficiary upon the death of an individual. Usually we are talking about a bank account or retirement plan of some kind payable on death to the survivor.
