Florida Attorney Assists with Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets and Liabilities
Experienced divorce lawyer represents your rights in the Tampa area
In Florida assets acquired and liabilities incurred during the marriage are considered marital assets, and when couples divorce, those assets are subject to equitable distribution. Under this standard, when couples cannot reach an agreement on dividing their assets, courts will divide marital assets in a manner that is fair and equitable, though not necessarily equal. At Gary S. Dolgin Attorney at Law, I represent clients in the Tampa area and throughout Florida to ensure that their rights are upheld and their marital assets and debt are divided equitably so that a breakup does not disadvantage them financially.
Detail-oriented advocates protect your assets
Before the actual distribution of marital assets can happen, assets must be valued and classified as either marital or non-marital. Marital assets comprises assets acquired during the marriage and available for distribution; non-marital property consists of assets acquired prior to the marriage. I have the necessary familiarity with Florida’s equitable distribution laws to distinguish assets and liabilities as either marital or non-marital. He also has the skill to trace the commingling of non-marital assets with marital assets, prevent unfair distribution and ensure that no assets or debts are overlooked in the final accounting.
Marital assets may include anything you have acquired during the marriage, such as:
- The marital home and vacation homes
- Stocks and bonds
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Home furnishings
- Retirement funds
- Pensions and annuities
