Marital Property Division Under Florida Law

How is Property Divided in a Florida Divorce

The State of Florida is an equitable distribution state when it comes to distribution of marital assets in a dissolution of marriage (divorce). What this means is that the Judge will take all of the assets and debts  and divide them in a fair manner. This is less of an objective standard and more of a subjective one. Under Florida Statute, the court begins with the premise that the distribution of assets and debts should be equal, unless there is a justification for unequal distribution. In some circumstances the distribution of debts and assets will not be equal. The first step that the lawyers at NeJame Law take is to assess all of the assets and debts and determine what you want to keep and are entitled to keep once your marriage is dissolved.
