Division of Marital Property
Real estate and other major property can create formidable delays in a divorce proceeding. Most real estate assets are sold for distribution between spouses in Florida divorce cases. Not a community property state, Florida courts typically divide property equitably rather than equally during a divorce proceeding. In consideration of alimony and property, a court may take into account the financial contribution, spousal treatment, and length of marital agreement, along with other factors such as the age of spouse, to determine “fair” apportionment of assets.
Protect Your Rights in a Divorce
Trained in mediation and litigation, a divorce attorney can assist a petitioner in the valuation of assets, property and investments, and debt obligations required to finalize a divorce case. Experienced divorce attorneys are also family law attorneys, specializing in child custody and the child support process. Regardless of the circumstances leading to marital separation, during a divorce proceeding, it is important to protect your rights. Hire a licensed family law attorney to protect yourself in the negotiation of alimony, child custody, finances, and property in court.
