Equitable Distribution and Division of Property

Division of Property – Boca Raton Family Law Firm

Florida family law follows the model of equitable distribution with the goal that each party walks away with his or her fair share of the marital estate. The cut-off date for the division of property by determining assets and liabilities to be identified or classified as marital assets and liabilities, or non-marital assets and liabilities, is the earliest of the dates the parties enter into a valid separation agreement or the date of the filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage.

Although Florida is a self-proclaimed equitable distribution state, this does not necessarily mean that there will be a 50/50 split. There are numerous complex issues involved in determining if an asset is marital or separate and determining property rights can end up being one of the most contentious aspects of a divorce. The flipside of equitable distribution, or a request for an unequal distribution, can be effectuated to provide equity between the parties. This request involves several statutory factors in determining each party’s property rights.
