Understanding equitable distribution in Florida

Divorce can be a very complicated and intensely emotional process. Various legal matters can be complex and difficult for the average person with no legal background to understand. Any Florida resident facing issues regarding equitable distribution of assets will want to seek clarification before attempting to negotiate a settlement.

The division of marital property is a central focus in many divorces. Any debt or asset acquired during a marriage is typically considered "marital property" by the court. The state of Florida uses an equitable distribution system when determining how that property will divided between spouses; this means that property will be divided fairly, though not always equally.

The Law Offices of Barry I. Finkel, P.A. offer sound legal counsel and effective representation based on more than 30 years of experience in negotiation and litigation of marital property division for clients in divorce. Mr. Finkel is a seasoned veteran when it comes to the various issues that often arise during high asset divorces. From retirement assets to hidden assets and more, Mr. Finkel is prepared to help you protect what you have earned and obtain the best possible settlement.

Various unique circumstances may prompt the court to issue a particular ruling regarding whether an asset is considered marital or premarital property. For instance, inheritance that a spouse received from a deceased love one's estate before marriage would typically fall into the premarital asset category, so long as that asset is not subsequently commingled with martial assets. Such nuances in the legal process are typically best understood through experienced legal guidance. The Law Offices of Barry I. Finkel, P.A. can answer questions about equitable distribution and address all other legal matters pertaining to divorce.
