Property Division Attorney in Brandon
How Is Marital Property Divided in Florida?
The general rule in Florida when it comes to dividing property is that marital property will be split equitably with each spouse keeping his or her own separate property. While the shared assets are divided equitably, this does not mean a 50/50 split; property will instead be divided in a way that is fair to both parties, to be determined by each couple's unique circumstances.
Marital property is anything acquired during the marriage, including:
- Joint bank accounts
- Marital home
- Family businesses
- Retirement accounts
- Shared assets
