What Is Considered Marital Property In Florida?

Florida is not a community property state, but is instead an equitable distribution state. The goal of equitable distribution is to figure out what is the fair way to divide marital property. Nonmarital assets and liabilities include assets and debts accrued before marriage and assets acquired by a spouse as a gift or inheritance either before or during a marriage. Marital assets and liabilities are assets and debts accrued during marriage, such as:

  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement and investment accounts
  • Houses
  • Motor vehicles
  • Credit card debts
  • Business interests

When navigating the process of dividing marital assets, our attorneys will help you understand your options and help ensure that you are receiving the best outcome possible.

How Is Property Divided In Florida?

When you get a divorce in Florida, the courts will decide what is the fair way to divide the marital property. This process does not always mean an equal split and there are a wide range of factors that go into the decision, such as:

  • Who contributed what to the marriage, including homemaker duties
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The economic status of both parties
  • The loss of educational or employment opportunities of one party
  • Who will take primary care of the children

This is just a small portion of what the court will considered. We will help you understand all your options and fight for the best outcome possible.
