How is Marital Property Divided in Florida?
Florida operates under the rule of “equitable distribution” when it comes to dividing marital assets and liabilities. Equitable distribution starts at 50/50, but can be unequal based upon certain factors, which are listed below. At Ilvento Law, P.A., we will work with you to find the best and most cost-effective way to resolve your dispute.
Factors that can affect how property is divided include:
- The length of the marriage
- The economic condition of each spouse
- The contributions of each spouse
- Who will remain in the marital home, if applicable
- The debts incurred by each spouse
- Whether either spouse dissipated funds or assets prior to the decision to divorce or after filing for divorce
- The age, health, educational or training level of each spouse
- Whether alimony is awarded
- Child support
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Another option for those concerned about marital property division lies in creating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. These agreements will predetermine how assets are to be divided in a divorce. They are especially applicable to those who are thinking of divorce but uncertain if the relationship can be saved. A postnuptial agreement will take off any pressure to file for divorce while you and your spouse work on your relationship. The establishment of asset and debt division will be one less cause of conflict.
