Florida has a statute with three distinct bases for determining proper venue, which state courts have repeatedly interpreted in the context of a divorce proceeding.

Stalking and social media: Direct messaging versus public posting

Adult support: Florida child support beyond the age of 18

Part 2: How is student loan debt divided in Florida divorce?

In part 1 of this post, we talked about college and professional degrees that spouses earned during marriage and how Florida courts handle those degrees in divorce.

It is also not proper to use a degree as a basis for a lump sum (one time) alimony payment.
