People going through divorces in Florida often find the services and testimony of experts to be useful in certain situations. Experts can be called in to provide their opinion on issues such as the division of marital property or child custody matters, and their testimony is generally admissible in court.
A comprehensive divorce settlement agreement in Florida should include the valuation and division of all assets that were acquired during the marriage. These assets include everything from homes and bank accounts to baseball card collections and frequent flier miles. The division of marital property should be completed based on the value of the asset although, in many instances, it becomes an emotional battle between the divorcing parties.
