PROPERTY DIVISION ATTORNEY IN ORLANDO
DIVORCE AND EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION
Division of marital or “community” property is one of the main elements in a divorce procedure. When a marriage is dissolved, the house, cars, property, bank accounts, and debts must all be divided between the two spouses. This process is known as “equitable distribution” in Florida family law and is not necessarily split 50 / 50. If you are facing divorce and want to have the highest chance of keeping the property and assets that are rightfully yours, you will need to hire an Orlando family lawyer that is experienced in the courtroom. You can also negotiate your equitable distribution with your spouse through mediation, drafting your own agreement that is finalized by a family law judge.
WILL I LOSE EVERYTHING IN A DIVORCE?
In the state of Florida, all property that is explicitly defined as separate property; all income from separate property that is not commingled; and all items that are exchanged for or purchased with separate property are considered to be the sole property of the one spouse. All other property, assets, accounts, and joint debts must be distributed through mediation or litigation. The best way to protect your property in a divorce proceeding is to be represented by a skilled divorce lawyer that knows your rights.
