Hollywood Division of Marital Assets Attorney
Broward County Attorney for Equitable Distribution
When a couple divorces, they are obligated under Florida law to divide their marital assets (property and debt) according to the law of equitable distribution. This does not mean that the assets will be divided 50-50, but rather in a way in which the court deems is fair, or, “equitable.”
At the Law Offices of Steven A. Mason, P.A., we’ve helped hundreds of individuals who have been faced with the task of dividing their marital property. With more than 30 years of experience, our seasoned Hollywood division of marital assets attorney has seen and done it all. We’ll work to ensure you understand the process, and that your rights and interests are protected along the way.
What Constitutes Marital Property?
Many people assume that marital property consists only of homes, monetary assets and physical possessions. In reality, many other assets, including marital debts, are subject to division:
- Credit card debt
- Health insurance policies
- Stocks and bonds
- Retirement accounts
Before starting the property division process, it is necessary to identify what property is marital and what property is non-martial. Anything (asset or debt) that is accumulated during the course of a marriage by the efforts of the parties may be considered marital property, and may therefore be divided.
In most of our cases, we try to divide the property as equally as possible, but some types of property cannot be cut in half. In these situations, we use a blend of negotiation, and give and take to determine who gets what.
