Protecting Your Financial Future During Divorce
The step of the divorce process that requires the most financial considerations is the division of property, assets and debts. As an equitable distribution state, Florida requires that all debts and assets received throughout the marriage are divided in a fair and even division; in the dissolution of marriage it can be much more complicated than a 50-50 split. It is in your best interests to seek guidance from an experienced lawyer.
At Peppler Law P.A., we offer clients in Oviedo, Winter Springs and throughout the Orlando area knowledgeable advice in the legal areas of family law, divorce, and the division of property and assets. Thomas Peppler has more than 35 years of experience and offers clients highly individualized services. When you work with our firm, you will meet directly with your attorney at all times and receive prompt answers to your concerns and inquiries.
Navigating Equitable Distribution Of Marital Property In Florida
Florida is considered an equitable distribution state, meaning that all marital property is presumed to be divided equally. Marital property is generally considered all property, assets and debts incurred over the life of the marriage even if the property is in only one partner’s name. In essence, it means that the starting point of division is at 50-50. Each spouse is entitled to an equitable share of everything, and you need a lawyer to help with this process.
We have significant experience in this area and have handled a wide range of divorce matters, including divorces with complex property and asset division issues. We will explain the legal issues involved in your situation and see if you may be entitled to alimony, child support and an unequal division of their marital property depending on your specific circumstances.
Work With An Experienced Divorce Lawyer To Avoid Any Misconceptions
There are often many misconceptions when it comes to the divorce process, so it is a smart idea to seek legal advice from an attorney who can provide honest answers to your questions. Below is a list of common misconceptions about divorce law:
- I will not be able to afford a divorce.
- My spouse was the main wage earner, so I might not be able to get the support I need after a divorce.
- I will never be able to see my children if I get a divorce.
- I will have to prove fault in order to get a divorce.
