Keeping Your Share In Property Division
When getting a divorce, dividing marital assets can be one of the most challenging portions of the process. While you may want to be cooperative in your divorce, being too nice can mean giving up far more than you need to when finalizing things. Thankfully, you can have someone at your side to protect your best interests in your divorce.
At Splitsville Family Law, Florida attorney Rand Lieber can help you pursue the best possible outcome when dividing your property. He has more than 25 years of legal experience at his disposal to represent you through lengthy negotiations and even the most contentious litigation.
How Your Assets May Divide
In Florida, judges often divide assets in a 50-50 manner, meaning each spouse takes half of the marital assets they accrued during the course of the marriage. Marital assets are possessions or wealth that either spouse earned in their marriage, such as income from work, real estate or retirement accounts. Debt that spouses accrued is also split in a 50-50 manner.
While most divisions occur evenly, there are some exceptions that can call for inequitable distribution, including if one spouse contributed to a vast majority of the assets, there was spousal misconduct or intentional dissipation (the deliberate destruction, waste or spending of assets).
