What Unique Issues Do Divorcing Doctors Face In Florida?

Best Tampa divorce attorneys representing professional in Florida

Divorce is never easy and complications can arise in any case. For doctors, though, there are unique issues that must be considered. Doctors who own their practice are often worried about what will happen to it during divorce. Many doctors also have high salaries, making alimony a bigger concern than for others who go through a divorce. Even the fact that doctors are very busy people can also impact certain decisions made during the divorce process. Although anyone going through a divorce should work with a Tampa divorce lawyer, and doing so is of critical importance for doctors.

Professional Practices and Divorce

Even if you started your own practice before you were married, it is likely still considered a marital asset. This is due to the fact that your practice likely helped support your household, and you may have even used marital funds to start it. Professionals such as doctors do not usually lose their practice during divorce. However, it will have to be evaluated so your spouse can receive compensation for their portion of it. Compensation can come in the form of monetary funds or other property.

Your License and Degree 

You cannot lose your medical degree or your license to practice medicine just because you are getting a divorce. Still, if your spouse worked while you went to school to earn your degree, or they financially contributed to your education, this can impact certain decisions during divorce. For example, you may be ordered to pay them more alimony to compensate for their contribution to your career.

Other Alimony Issues 

Other alimony issues can play a role in your divorce, as well. For example, if your spouse stayed home to maintain the household and raise the children while you worked, it could result in a higher amount of alimony being awarded. If you were able to provide a high standard of living during your marriage, that could also result in higher alimony.

Time-Sharing Issues 

Parenting plans drafted during divorce are usually fairly set and routine. One parent has the children during a specific period of time with the other parent sharing different times with their children. For example, one parent may have the children during the week and the other parent takes the children on the weekend. As a doctor, though, your schedule may not be routine and it may also be very busy. It is important to work with a Tampa divorce lawyer who can provide creative solutions in these matters.
