Equitable Distribution in Florida

Equitable distribution means that if the divorcing parties cannot agree on the division of property and assets on their own, the court will divide debts and assets in a manner it deems fair and equitable. This does not mean that property and debts will be split 50-50.

Whether you have accumulated substantial assets during your marriage or not, it is important to retain the services of an experienced Gainesville property division lawyer to protect your rights and ensure as much financial stability as possible in your post-divorce life.

Handling High-Asset Cases

If unmarried partners have accumulated significant assets over the course of a relationship that is now ending, property division can be more challenging than in a traditional divorce. Unless the parties signed a legal cohabitation agreement, the services of a knowledgeable family law attorney are critical to protecting their financial interests. Without a trusted lawyer by your side, you risk foregoing a fair and just settlement for your property dispute issues.

At Bauer Law Group, P.A., we have the knowledge and experience to assist clients with high net worth cases involving complex holdings, such as family businesses, pensions, private practices, second homes or investment real estate, collectibles, and other assets. We know how to uncover hidden assets, value property, and ensure that all property is distributed fairly.

Factors Considered When Dividing Marital Property in Florida

Florida courts consider several factors when dividing marital property, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s earning ability and economic situation
  • Contributions that each spouse made to the marriage, including improvement of marital assets or in contributions in a non-income-producing manner, such as being a primary caregiver for children
  • Whether either spouse interrupted their own career or education during the marriage to contribute to the other spouse’s career or education
  • Whether either spouse intentionally depleted marital assets after the divorce petition or within two years of filing the divorce petition
