How Marital Property Is Divided In Divorce

One important issue that you and your spouse will face if you divorce is the division of marital assets and debts. An experienced attorney can help you come out of the experience with your finances as intact as possible.

Attorney Laurie L. Blanton can help identify what is marital property (and subject to division) and what is not. She provides realistic advice and will stand by you throughout the process, even when things get difficult. She is here to protect your financial interests and make sure you get everything you are entitled to under Florida law.

What Is Subject To Property Division?

Generally speaking, marital property is real estate, money, retirement funds and other property obtained while a couple is married. It does not include assets you or your spouse earned before your marriage or received by gift or inheritance during your marriage.

For some families, marital property division is relatively simple, but for others, it can be wildly complicated. The longer you have been married and the more complicated your finances, the more important it is to hire a lawyer who can track what needs dividing. For example, separate property can — and often does — include marital property contributions.
