Advocating For Fair Property Settlements

During divorce, large questions loom about how to achieve a fair and just allocation of assets. How can you make sure to come away with a solid enough financial foundation to get back on your feet? What if you haven't worked outside the home? What if all of your net worth is tied up in the marital home, a retirement account or other noncash assets?

Sorting through these questions is no easy task. Fairly splitting assets in divorce requires a careful analysis of your unique situation — including the assets and debts involved, the standard of living during your marriage, the length of your marriage and other factors. While courts in Florida aim to achieve a fair or "equitable distribution" of property, that does not mean it will automatically be 50-50. There is no one-size-fits-all formula for anticipating or proposing a workable outcome.
