Real Estate Attorney
Yes you should short sale to avoid that
Divorce / Separation Lawyer
Yes, especially if the property is an investment property used for rental, and not your homestead. Consult with a foreclosure defense attorney to see if this can be avoided.

Family Law Attorney
Two florida Attorneys agree, that is no mean feat. They are probably correct. I can not comment more as I am in California and the laws vary from state to state.
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and I have practiced over 38 years and can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practiced mainly in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I am not seeking clients from existing relationships with other attorneys, and give only limited advise over the phone (the phone is primarily used to set appointments), these services do not create an attorney client relationship. I apologize for mispelling< as I am a lousy typist, My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth. Further regarding courts in other states my opinions are largely based on logic and what I think is the modern trend which is to consider the needs of the child.
An important aspect to obtaining the bank's agreement to not pursue you for a deficiency is to contest the foreclosure lawsuit. See this post from my web page discussing deficiency judgments: http://defendmyfloridahome.com/?p=661
