General Family Law Information

Topic: Equitable Division of Marital Property and Assets

Contrary to popular belief, during a divorce in the State of Florida, it does not always mean the property is divided in half. Division of marital property is actually the process of achieving equitable distribution of all property and assets accumulated during the course of a marriage. Property or assets brought into the marriage prior to the wedding may also be included if the spouses shared the property and assets during the course of the marriage.

The equitable distribution of marital property and assets may include, but are not limited to:

  • The family home, and other real estate or investment property;
  • Automobiles, Motorcycles, Motor Homes, or other conventional modes of transportation;
  • Jewelry;
  • Recreational vehicles, such as boats, ATV's;
  • Checking and Savings Accounts;
  • Pension Benefits, IRAs, 401(k)s, stocks, other investment interests;
  • And other items of value and/or sentimental value.

The Division of Marital Property and Assets is often one of the most contested areas in a divorce, as there are two points of view as to what is fair, what may be sentimental to one spouse or the other, what was given as gifts during the marriage as apposed shared purchases, and so on.

Negotiating and reaching an amicable resolution to Marital Property and Asset issues prior to scheduled court hears can be extremely instrumental in successfully achieving a divorce in a timely manner.
