When Dividing Assets During Divorce, Look To Us To Protect Your Interests

In Florida, the division of property and assets during divorce is known as equitable distribution. In short, this means the division of assets does not need to be equal, rather it just needs to be fair in the eyes of courts.

Equitable Property Division Is Intended To Be Fair — That Doesn't Mean It Will Be Equal

If both parties can reach an amicable agreement regarding the division of real estate, investments and pensions, debts and other marital property, the property division phase of the divorce can be relatively painless. However, if spouses fail to agree, the courts will consider various factors before making a determination, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse's economic circumstances
  • Individually accrued debts and liabilities
  • Individual contributions to the marriage
  • Parenting time arrangements
  • Whether either spouse intentionally hid or wasted assets prior to or during the divorce
