Property division in Florida is subject to state-specific rules. In Florida, the law requires that there be an equitable division of property between the spouses; however, this may not mean every asset is split 50/50 between the couple. Property that was accumulated during the marriage will be divided in an equitable manner depending on circumstances unique to the marriage.
The specific circumstances of each spouse will be thoroughly evaluated in the division of property or other assets. Some couples may be able to navigate this process on their own with a divorce lawyer or mediator, while others will need to go to court for a judge’s decision.
Determining the difference between marital and separate property is often a contentious issue between couples. In general, anything that was bought with marital funds or accumulated during the marriage can be subject to division during a divorce. Anything an individual owned prior to getting married or assets included in a prenuptial agreement may be excluded from distribution.
