Happy Veterans Day

 Posted by Nydia Streets of Streets Law in Holidays

Happy Veterans Day! I appreciate this day even more so because of my grandfather and my brother who served in the Marines and the Army, respectively. Both have had a huge, positive impact on my life and inspire me to do my job and live my life with honor, good character and humility. To them and to all who have selflessly served our nation, have a great day.

This is why some parties end up liquidating assets during a divorce proceeding in order to keep up financially. In the case Jones v. Jones, 1D16-3736 (Fla. 1st DCA 2018), the husband liquidated his military retirement account and was penalized for it in the final judgment.

Starting July 1, 2018, Florida law expanded the rules on who is allowed to have timesharing in place of the deployed parent.
