South Florida Property Division Attorneys
Property division matters can be extremely complex and require the attention of a skilled divorce lawyer who has the ability to obtain the settlement you deserve. Florida is an equitable distribution state which means that all marital property should be divided between the spouses in a fair and equitable manner.
In general terms, marital property is any asset or debt acquired by the couple during the marriage. Anything the spouses owned prior to the marriage is generally considered separate property. In some cases though, certain separate property that appreciates in value during the marriage can be considered marital property. One of the most important considerations in property division matters is identifying the marital property and assigning a fair value to it.
Protecting Your Interests in Property Division Matters
At The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, we have extensive experience handling all types of complex property division cases. We have handled cases that have involved everything from extensive real estate holdings to antique and art collections. We have access to a broad network of valuation experts who can assign an accurate value to the property in order to ensure a fair distribution.
Many of the cases we handle involve privately owned businesses and executive compensation packages. Business valuation is an extremely important part of the property division process. Even if only one spouse is involved in the business, the other spouse is entitled to a fair share of the interest in it. In addition, any stock options, pensions, defined benefit plans and retirement accounts are also considered marital property.
Our firm's background in employment law and business law gives us a keen insight into all of the factors that need to be considered in a property division case. We work with forensic accountants and business valuation experts to find all of the assets and funds to be included in the marital property.
