Division of Assets in a Florida Divorce
Almost every divorce involves some level of dispute over fair property
division. In the state of Florida, assets are not simply divided in half
or equally between the two spouses.
There are two different types of property that will be considered in a divorce:
- Property brought into the marriage
- Property acquired during the marriage
All property and assets that were brought into the marriage by one individual
remains in his or her possession upon divorce. The remaining estate -
that which was collected and earned over the course of the marital relationship
- is considered community property or property that is owned by both husband and wife.
If you have a family law or divorce matter, we can help.
What is equitable distribution?
Equitable distribution is the method used to divide community property
in a divorce. A number of factors and variables can affect this form of
property division. If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement
regarding distribution of marital property, your divorce attorney in Orlando
can work with the court, to help you obtain the desired property.
Factors in determining division of assets:
- Length of the marriage
- Contributions to the estate
- Economic status
- Debts and liabilities of each spouse
When the stakes are high, it is important to make sure that you have a
good representative in your corner that is looking out for you and fighting
for your interests during this stressful time. Let a lawyer from our firm
look out for your best interests and help you in court!
