EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION

YOU OWN MARITAL PROPERTY WITH YOUR SOON-TO-BE EX-SPOUSE.  NOW WHAT?

You need legal counsel to help you properly identify, value, and divide the property.

In most marriages, couples will acquire assets and debts that are held jointly by the parties, or individually in each respective partner’s name.  A common misconception that many people have is that the property that they hold in their individual name during marriage, such as an individual bank account, will remain non-marital property.  That is  not necessarily true in the state of Florida!  In fact, despite how the property is titled, ALL property that is acquired during the marriage is marital property, with few exceptions to the rule. 

Florida law requires courts to make an equitable distribution of all marital property, unless either party successfully demonstrates to the Court why an unequal distribution should be ordered.   

 

This is where an experienced family law attorney steps in to help guide you through the many questions you may have including:

 

  • What will happen to the home I purchased before my marriage? 

  • Is my spouse now entitled to take half of my retirement account? 

  • What happens to the inheritance my grandmother left me? 

  • Will I be forced to sale my home?

Our firm is here to advise, represent, and advocate for the outcome that you are entitled to.
