Equitable Distribution

Florida Property Division Attorneys

Marital property in Florida is divided according to the law of equitable distribution. This means that a couple’s property and assets are not necessarily divided 50-50 throughout the course of a divorce. The assets and property accumulated during the course of the marriage are divided equitably at the discretion of court.

At Barbra Amron Weisberg, P.A., we use our experience when helping individuals with marital property division. We structure our advice and guidance in order to help clients understand the economic ramifications of the choices they have with divorce asset protection and property division.  If necessary, we engage financial experts to assist in the process.

Types of Property considered for Equitable Division

  • Homes, property, and physical possessions are not the only types of assets that are subject to division. Some of the types of monetary assets and accounts that may be divided upon a divorce include:
  • Retirement accounts and 401K’s
  • IRA and Pensions
  • Health insurance
  • Stocks and bonds and brokerage accounts
  • Social Security disability benefits

Marital debt is also subject to division.

The debt that is accumulated by the two parties throughout the marriage is also subject to equitable division. This is designed to ensure that a large amount debt will be left for the party with the lower income earning ability. We help clients understand marital debt division and how it may factor into property division. If the debt was incurred by one spouse for their exclusive benefit it may be possible to it assign it to that spouse as a portion of their share of the debts.
