How Property Is Divided
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. As your divorce attorney in Tampa Bay, FL, our representative will assist you in reaching an agreement that is reasonable and fair.

Taking Taxes and Debts into Consideration for Spousal Support
There are significant tax considerations to be aware of in any divorce, including the dependency deduction for children, taxability of child support, alimony in its various forms, and property transfers.
