Spousal Support Lawyer in Tampa Bay, FL
Marital property division may include and affect cars, houses, retirement benefits (pensions), business interests, cash, stocks, bonds, bank accounts, personal property, and other assets.
Florida statutes and case law provide for an "equitable distribution" of marital property. In essence, the marital property should be divided fairly or equitably (not necessarily equally) between the parties, regardless of how the title is held.
There is no fixed way to determine how you or the court should divide the property, so liabilities and assets must be considered. Other factors include the nature and extent of the property and whether it is marital property or non-marital property, the duration of the marriage, and the economic circumstances of each spouse. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Steven J. Glaros and Associates will assist you in reaching an agreement that is reasonable and fair.

Taking Taxes & Debts into Consideration for Spousal Support
