Equitable Distribution/Property Division
Conflicts over how marital property should be allocated can cause outsized problems for divorcing spouses. If spouses cannot reach an agreement on how their assets and debts should be divided, Florida law requires courts to make a determination based on the principle of equitable distribution. This does not necessarily mean that the shares will be equal but that a judge renders a decision based on what he or she believes to be fair. I will work with you to construct the strongest possible argument on your behalf.
For questions regarding equitable distribution and other family law conflicts, I always look to resolve issues through consensus to reduce my clients’ expense and aggravation. However, if a reasonable compromise cannot be worked out, I will vigorously defend your rights in court.
Seasoned adviser litigates questions of marital and separate property
Questions about whether specific assets are part of the marital estate often trigger disputes during divorce litigation. Nonmarital property includes items that were acquired by one partner prior to the marriage as well as gifts and inheritances received by one spouse during the course of the union. My firm conducts a thorough review of marital and premarital property and presents that information to the court so that you have the best chance of receiving the value that you are entitled to.
