STUART FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY
Dividing Property in a Divorce
After child custody and support issues, property division is perhaps the most disputed and tense part of divorce negotiations, which is why the assistance of a Stuart attorney can be invaluable. Florida follows equitable distribution policy, which means all property and debt acquired during the union will be divided equitably between the divorcing parties. Florida law requires that the equitable distribution of the parties’ assets and debts be equal unless there is justification for an unequal distribution. Unequal distribution is based on a number of relevant factors such as each party’s contribution to the marriage and / or the intentional dissipation of marital assets, as well as numerous other factors which must be taken into consideration.
The guidelines for equitable distribution are complex, and if you are going through a divorce, you need to know that your rights are protected. You can learn more about equitable distribution and your personal situation during an initial consultation with a member of our legal team.
