Division of Assets in a Florida

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:

  1. Property brought into the marriage
  2. 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.

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 division. If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement regarding distribution of marital property, your attorney 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!
