Equitable Distribution, Including Inheritance & Marital Property Division

Often, complex divorces are further strained by concerns regarding the division of marital property and debt. 

For clients with highly valuable property and significant individual and marital investments, the process can be even more complicated and involve many different concerns, such as:

  • Investment assets
  • Family-owned businesses
  • Professional practice interests
  • Multimillion-dollar homes and real estate
  • IRS tax debt and credit card debt

Florida is an equitable distribution state, so marital assets are divided fairly, but not necessarily 50/50. Primary issues include:

  • Identifying and defining separate (nonmarital) property: Any assets brought into a marriage, whether received as a gift or inheritance or obtained through personal injury awards, are considered separate property unless they were commingled with marital assets. This separate, nonmarital property is not subject to equitable distribution.
  • Asset and debt evaluation: When all assets, property, and debts are clearly identified, the hard work begins with the negotiation of an equitable division. Who gets the primary residence? Who assumes the credit card debt? How do the retirement funds get divided? Typically, all assets accumulated during the marriage not otherwise identified as nonmarital are considered marital property.

Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg & Schneider, P.A. is here to protect our clients’ marital rights and help them pursue an equitable distribution of all assets and debts.
