Who pays for the children’s braces in a Florida divorce?

Today, many children and teens get braces or other orthodontic treatment to straighten or adjust overcrowded teeth, correct an overbite or underbite, enhance tooth or jaw placement, or improve smiles. According to KidsHealth, the average length of time a child wears braces is approximately two years at a price tag of about $5,000. 

Oi vey: Getting the get in a Florida divorce

A Jewish woman in Florida facing divorce may encounter a legal challenge if it is important to her to receive a “get” from her husband. A get is a religious document the husband must sign to release the wife from their marriage. Without a get, a rabbi will not normally remarry her if she wants a subsequent marriage performed within the Jewish faith.
