Divorced couple still fighting over division of assets

A divorced couple from Florida continues to fight over the division of their assets, according to a ruling from earlier this month by the Fourth District Court of Appeals. The former wife filed the appeal with the court when a lower court failed to award her with permanent alimony, dismissed a request for the payment of attorney's fees, did not properly categorize stocks named as assets and much more.

Divorce was filed by the former husband back in 2013 after 18 years of marriage. The former husband moved to Brazil at the time of the divorce, while the wife stayed in Florida with their two children. According to the wife, she received multiple gifts during the marriage from her former husband's family.

It was discovered during proceedings that the husband's father had provided the couple with at least $1.4 million in loans during their marriage. The husband also claimed more than $885,000 in assets from stocks. During proceedings in trial court, the court found that the assets were worth more than $1 million.

When the couple divorced, the former wife was not working, and she asked the court for $20,000 per month in spousal support. She was awarded just $2,500 per month and her former husband was ordered to pay her $12,000 to attend nursing school.

Dealing with family law issues can be overwhelming, even if you have the right frame of mind entering into divorce. Working with an experienced Fort Lauderdale collaborative law attorney can help you understand what to expect during the divorce proceedings.
