Orlando Division of Assets & Debts Attorneys
Exceptional Divorce Representation in Orlando & Cocoa
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?

How Florida Divides Your Property & Debts
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 divorce attorneys can help in many ways, such as in determining
marital assets as opposed to nonmarital 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.
