Equitable property division isn’t all about being equal

On Behalf of | Sep 25, 2014 | Property Division

Divorce and property division go hand in hand. Knowing your rights when it comes to getting assets and debts divided can help you as you go through the process. Getting the settlement you need from the get-go is vital because once the settlement is finalized, it cannot be altered.

We know how important it is for you to get started on your new journey with the items you need and without too much debt. For this reason, we work to ensure you can hold on to the assets you hold dear. We also work to ensure that the debts you are responsible for after the divorce are nothing beyond your fair share.

As we discuss on our website, we can help you through complex property division. Having to deal with businesses, real estate, brokerage accounts, and other assets can often prove to be complicated during the divorce.

When you are dividing your assets, it is important to remember that Florida is an equitable distribution state. That means that everything doesn’t have to be divided in an even split. Instead, consideration is given to each spouse’s needs as assets are divvied up. This is another reason why it is important to have representation that is firm and knowledgeable.

No matter what your situation is when you are going through a divorce, it is important that you get what you need to start your new life. This can mean having a home, bank accounts, and retirement accounts to give you the stability you need. We can help you to determine what is a suitable settlement that meets your needs.
