Ready to Do What It Takes to Reach a Favorable Resolve for Your Case

Clearwater Property Division Lawyer

Advocating for Your Fair Share of Marital Assets

When going through a divorce, negotiations become complicated when the spouses cannot agree on how to divide the marital assets. Each spouse feels that they are entitled to certain assets or properties that were gained during the marriage. When the spouses cannot settle on an arrangement, it is up to the Florida family court to distribute the assets equitably. This does not necessarily mean equally. It means the judge will decide who gets what based on what is fair under the circumstances. If you are trying to negotiate with your spouse about property division in Florida, it is vital that you tap the resources of our knowledgeable Clearwater family law attorney. We help our clients achieve the outcome from their divorce that they desire.

Factors That Determine Property Division

A couple who chooses to dissolve their marriage in the state of Florida is subject to a court-ordered distribution of assets and allocation of debt if they cannot agree upon it on their own. It is up to each spouse to prove to the judge what they have contributed into the marriage so it can be determined what they get out of it.

A judge will consider the following situations for each spouse regarding property division in Clearwater:

  • Financial status
  • Marriage length
  • Support that was given to further the career of the other spouse
  • Effort made to increase joint finances
  • Homemaking and child rearing
  • Earning capacity
