The Marital Property Division Process
Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that assets accumulated during marriage are divided fairly, and not necessarily on an equal basis.
Dividing marital property is a three-step process — marital assets and debts must be identified, valued, and then divided on an equitable basis. In short-term marriages, this can be a straightforward process.
The longer a marriage lasts, the more likely it will be that separate assets and debts (those acquired before the marriage and through gifts and inheritances) can become mingled with marital assets.
Our founding attorney, Lee Pickett, understands the marital property division process and will use the law to protect your rights. He has an M.S. degree in Finance from Georgia State University and is knowledgeable in valuation and appraisal techniques.
In more complex cases we will work with outside experts such as an accountant, appraiser, business valuation specialist, and other professionals who can support your case.
