Family Lawyers – Tampa, FL
Florida is known as an “equitable distribution” state. This essentially means that in the event that a couple divorces and a judge is called upon to make a decision about that couple’s property division scenario, the judge is bound to divide the couple’s property equitably. What does this mean practically? Property acquired during a marriage is ordinarily considered to be jointly owned. Therefore, a 50-50 split of marital property is considered equitable under most circumstances. However, if there are unique considerations to be taken into account (ex: one spouse received a significant inheritance from their parents while the marriage was already on the rocks, one spouse attempted to hide assets during the marriage, etc.), the concept of “fairness” will come into play and a 50-50 split of property acquired during the marriage may no longer be deemed appropriate.
Dividing Your Assets During Divorce
It is important to understand that our role as Tampa, FL family lawyers is not to “push” you into any specific approach to your divorce. Our role is to support you as you pursue your divorce-related goals. Therefore, if you and your spouse are grappling with fundamental differences concerning your asset division needs, we will build a strong case on your behalf that can be argued in court. If you and your spouse have already drafted a sample property division agreement and only need help formalizing your wishes, we can make that happen. If you are in the “middle ground” of agreeing on some points and needing to resolve others through negotiation and/or mediation, we can represent your interests efficiently and effectively.
