We Can Help You Protect The Practice You've Worked Hard To Build

Florida is an "equitable distribution" state, requiring fair — but not necessarily equal — distribution of marital property between divorcing spouses. If you own your own professional practice, or practice as part of a larger business entity, it has likely taken many years of education, training and hard work to get where you are. A divorce can put all of this at risk. If you have helped your spouse succeed professionally either through financial support or by taking on home and family obligations, you have an interest in fair distribution of the marital assets.

Finding The Right Solution For You

Divorces involving professional practices and businesses can be complex. If you or your spouse owned the practice prior to your marriage, it may not be considered marital property that is subject to division. If the value of the practice has grown during the marriage, however, then some of that value may be considered marital property that is subject to equitable distribution.

Depending on the circumstances, business dissolution may be a more viable option than trying to hold onto the practice following a divorce. There may also be concerns surrounding prenuptial or postnuptial agreements — the status of the professional practice or the future earning power of the professional. We can walk you through all of these issues and help you maintain your privacy and dignity while finding the right path to move forward.
