Working For Fair Distribution Of Marital Property
An appropriate and fair division of marital assets during divorce can mean the difference between a future of hope and stability or years of struggle. You may not even realize the complexity of the assets you and your spouse accumulated during your marriage.
The lawyers at Burandt, Adamski, Feichthaler & Sanchez, PLLC, understand the emotion that often accompanies the division of property during a divorce. With an experienced attorney knowledgeable in Florida’s property division laws, you have a strong advocate for your rights.
Florida’s Equitable Division Law
Florida divorce laws divide marital assets equitably. This is not always 50/50. Rather, it is based on what the court believes is fair considering the length of your marriage, your financial situations and other factors. Martial property consists of money and assets you and your spouse accumulated after your wedding, including:
- Bank accounts
- Your home and other real estate
- Furnishings and other personal property
- Digital assets
The court will also equitably divide your debts. To ensure that you are not burdened with your spouse’s debt, you will benefit from the support of an experienced attorney.
Skillful Negotiation For The Division Of Complex Assets
Among the largest assets couples possess are retirement accounts. Many divorcing couples mistakenly believe that if the retirement fund is in one spouse’s name, the funds in it belong to that spouse alone. This is true only for the portion of a retirement fund that existed prior to your wedding. Any accumulation of wealth during your marriage is fair game for distribution unless a prenuptial agreement stipulates otherwise.
