South Florida Property Division
The Equitable Distribution of Assets in a Divorce
Ending a marriage can be difficult due to the numerous issues that will need to be resolved. One of the most important agreements that must be worked out is how your marital property will be divided. There are various state laws that apply to asset division, and are used as guidance when identifying, valuing and distributing the property accumulated during your marriage. Also keep in mind that that the process includes the distribution of any debts or liabilities that were acquired throughout the marriage as well. In cases involving high net worth individuals, the division of property can be complex and arduous, especially when a spouse attempts to hide assets. A South Florida divorce lawyer should be consulted if you are intending to divorce to discuss how your property can be fairly and equitably distributed. Seeking counsel from a knowledgeable family attorney will help avoid an unwanted division of property and seek to reach a fair settlement.
