Florida fans of actor Terrence Howard may not be aware that despite the actor's blockbuster resume, his take-home pay is less than $6,000 per month. This is his claim in the request he has filed to have changes made in his spousal support arrangement for his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent.
Individuals in Florida who are thinking about divorce may wish to start by organizing financial paperwork. Having a complete picture of debts and assets is an important first step in understanding how those assets will need to be divided. Furthermore, an individual who is able to gather as much financial information as possible at the outset will be better equipped to determine whether a spouse may be trying to conceal assets during a divorce.
Florida couples who are planning to legally separate might need to consider obligations to standing mortgage agreements and ownership of the family home during and after proceedings. In addition, according to a recent article, certain actions, such as purchasing a new house to live in after the marriage is dissolved, might be complicated by property ownership interests.
Florida basketball fans may be aware of Indiana Pacers player Paul George and his recent paternity issues. A female child has been born to a former paramour of his, and a prenatal paternity test showed a high probability that he is the father. Although reports indicate that George has requested a new paternity test, if the test indicates that he is the father, then he has announced his intention to ask for sole custody of the child.
Florida baseball fans may remember the start of a recent lawsuit involving Frank McCourt, the former owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. After a man was attacked in a Dodger Stadium parking lot, he filed suit against McCourt and the team for upwards of $36 million. As that lawsuit was coming to a close, however, McCourt remained involved in his 2012 divorce from his wife of nearly three decades, Jamie McCourt. The McCourts had entered into a divorce settlement agreement that stated that, if either member of the couple chose later to contest the terms of divorce, he or she would be responsible for the other's court costs.
