When you keep the kids but not the salary

Feb 28, 2023 | Family Law

One parent is the main earner in the relationship while the other takes care of the house and the kids. Does that sound familiar?

If you are the main caretaker, you might expect to continue living with your children after divorce. There is no guarantee this will happen, but there could be some things that would make your future family life easier without the salary your ex earns.

Property division

One of the main concerns you are bound to have is where you might live with your kids after divorce. This is typically a point that people negotiate during the property division process.

Florida law calls for the equitable division of property. This means that each person in a marriage deserves a fair share of the total property held by the two people.

Keeping the house might mean trading off some of your interests in other assets. Furthermore, there could be some laws that help you cement your position in the family home for the specific purpose of taking care of your children —even before the divorce is over.

Time-sharing plans

While this might not be the most attractive prospect to you at the moment, another thing that benefits most caretakers is sharing parenting time and responsibilities. Having your ex take care of the children during specified times could help you make space for the other important things in your life.

The section of the law on time sharing also has terms about other things that might help you provide for your children. It includes, but is not limited to, issues of health insurance and child support.

Divorce should be the way that you build a new family apart from your spouse. Things did not work out in the past, but they could work out in the future.
