Property Division
Florida Divorce Law: Florida Property Division Attorney

 

Florida is what is commonly known as an "equitable distribution" state, which means that all marital property will be divided in a fair, but not necessarily equal manner.

 

At the law offices of Stephen K. Miller, P.A., a Florida divorce law firm with the experience necessary to ensure that our clients get their fair share of marital assets throughout the course of both uncontested and contested divorces, we strive to ensure that you have all of the facts associated with your partner’s financial position. It is our mission to protect our clients' assets while we work to resolve division of asset issues prior to litigation.

 

Defining Marital Assets

Florida family law seeks to divide marital property equally during the dissolution of marriage.

Marital assets may include:

* Assets that were acquired during the course of the marriage, individually by either spouse or jointly.

* The enhancement in value and appreciation of certain non-marital assets resulting from the efforts or contribution of either party during the marriage.

* Inter-spousal gifts acquired during the marriage.

* All vested and non-vested benefits, rights and funds that may have been accrued during the marriage through retirement, pension, profit sharing, annuity, deferred compensation, and insurance plans.

* In most cases, all real property held by the parties as tenants by the entireties, acquired prior to or during the marriage.

Non-marital assets may include:

* Assets that were acquired prior to the marriage.

* Assets acquired separately by either party by inter-spousal gift, bequest, devise, or descent.

* All income from non-marital assets during the marriage unless the income was treated, used, or relied upon by the parties as a marital asset.

* Assets excluded from marital assets by valid written agreement of the parties.

To ensure an accurate calculation of assets, it is imperative that parties hire a family law attorney experienced in property division.
