Florida is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital property assets must be split fairly during a divorce.
Divorce is not one-size-fits-all. For some people in Florida, the divorce process may be quick and relatively painless. For others, especially those with young children and a lot of assets, it may be a much longer process.
When a couple that has built up a substantial amount of assets decides to get divorced, there is often a lot of negotiating when it comes to property division. Oftentimes, one spouse feels entitled to certain assets or accounts while the other spouse wants the same things for him or herself. While these disputes can arise among Fort Lauderdale couples, we hear about them most frequently in celebrity divorces.
