How can an Equitable Distribution Attorney Help You?
When you divorce in Florida, equitable distribution rules are the legal rules that determine how your property is divided. Equitable does not mean equal. You are not necessarily entitled to 50% of all property acquired during the marriage, as you would be if you lived in other states like California.
Instead, you’re entitled to an equitable, or fair, share of all property acquired during the marriage and each spouse gets to keep “separate” property which he owned prior to the union. Equitable distribution rules aim to divide up marital property in a reasonable way.
The laws on equitable distribution outline a number of different factors considered in determining what a fair division of assets is. The length of your marriage matters, and the contributions- both financial and otherwise – that each spouse made to the marriage are also important.
Understanding how equitable distribution works is complicated, but it can be important. If you are trying to negotiate a division of property outside of court yourself, you need to know what you should be entitled to so you can compromise on a reasonable division of property and claim your fair share.
If you are going to court and asking a judge to decide, you need to know how to make strong legal arguments for what you believe is an equitable division of property acquired while you were wed.
