How Are Assets & Liabilities Divided in Divorce?
The division of your property is an important and complex part of your divorce proceedings. There are many factors to account for, such as the length of your marriage, the contribution each spouse had to the marriage, and the amount of debt or the number of assets are involved.
In Florida, the court divides the parties' marital assets and liabilities based on what it deems fair, a concept known as "equitable distribution.” Our firm is prepared to handle all the complexities involved with the equitable distribution in your divorce.
Marital Property vs. Non-Marital Property in Florida
You and your spouse’s property will either be labeled as marital property or non-marital property. This will help determine how certain assets can be distributed.
Marital property is anything that was acquired by you or your spouse during the marriage, including physical property, financial assets, and debts.
Separate property is anything that was owned by you or your spouse before the marriage, or anything that was acquired by you or your spouse during the marriage as a gift or inheritance.
