Exceptional Divorce Representation in Orlando
The division of marital assets and debts in a divorce is an issue that is often highly complex and extremely crucial to both parties. Many questions arise depending on the particular facts and circumstances of the spouses. What will happen to all of the property accumulated over the course of the marriage, including the family home? How will debts be divided, especially when one spouse has been the bigger spender? What happens when a business is part of the picture? What exactly defines “marital” property?

Our legal team is adept at handling all the details of this matter and working to help you obtain a fair and just resolution whether at the negotiation table or in court.
How Is Property Divided in Florida?
Florida is what is referred to as an “equitable distribution” state. Unlike some states that make a 50-50 split between parties, Florida courts can divide property and debts based on what is considered to be fair. That may mean a 50-50 division or it may mean an unequal but equitable split based on the specifics of the case.
Florida judges will look at many factors when determining what is equitable.
These factors include (but are not limited to):
- The length of the marriage
- What each party contributed to the marriage, including financial support as well as primary responsibility for raising children and taking care of the home environment
- The economic circumstances of the parties
- Whether one spouse contributed to the career, education, or training of the other
- Whether either party intentionally dissipated the assets after filing for divorce or in the two years prior
- Whether an asset such as a business or private practice should be retained by one of the parties
- Whether alimony will be paid
How We Can Help
Our skilled property division attorneys can help in many ways, such as in determining marital assets as opposed to non-marital assets, submitting evidence to the court that accurately values assets (even in complex cases involving businesses), self-employment income, and more. We may also be able to locate property and income that one party may be trying to conceal or devalue. We can investigate and present evidence in your favor that can be used by the court to make a fair determination on this issue.
