Asset And Debt Division In Florida
Florida is an equitable division state, meaning that marital assets and debts are divided equitably between spouses. Property acquired during a marriage is typically classified as marital property, with very few exceptions. Non-marital property is defined as property acquired by a spouse prior to a marriage and limited property acquired during a marriage, including property acquired by gift or inheritance.
The term equitable means fair or just. While a court may divide marital property on an equal 50-50 basis, equitable division does not require an equal 50-50 split. Courts will also divide the marital debts of the parties in an equitable fashion. Given that courts have significant discretion to determine the equitable interests of the parties, it is critical that parties subject to a divorce have highly qualified legal counsel to ensure the protection of their rights.
Legal Services Tailored To Meet Your Needs
We understand that each of our clients has different needs. For some clients, receiving an award of the marital home is critical. For others, having access to liquid assets, such as investment accounts or savings accounts, is more important. By identifying your objectives, we can negotiate on your behalf to seek an equitable division of marital property that best suits your needs.
Given our vast experience in family law, we understand that property disputes can often be resolved through negotiation or mediation to avoid protracted litigation, thus minimizing the financial and emotional costs of divorce. When necessary, we have skilled and experienced trial lawyers who will vigorously protect your rights and interests in the courtroom. As a client of Korshak & Associates, you will have a strong advocate on your side.
