Property division should be done right the first time

Whenever Orlando couples go through the divorce process, Florida's family law courts will apply the principle of equitable distribution to the property division process. This means that the courts will attempt to divide the couple's property in a manner that is fair under the circumstances. Each party's good-faith cooperation is essential for the process to be successful. When one party attempts to thwart property division by hiding assets, it could potentially lead to an unfair result.

Legal facts about property division and a premarital agreement

Florida couples who have chosen to end their marriage will often have disagreements about how to allocate property obtained during the marriage and with other aspects of property division. This can be a complicated and costly issue which can be made easier or, in some cases, more difficult by a premarital agreement.

How can you find hidden assets during divorce?

Even if it is what you want, filing for divorce can make a person uneasy. Not only are they parting ways with a person he or she thought would be their spouse for life, but they need to grasp the fact that they soon will be single. And in order to start this post-divorce life they are working towards, a spouse must walk away from the marriage with what is rightfully theirs.

Property division can be fair but not equitable

Many things go through your mind when you file for divorce? While some couples in Florida and elsewhere might be thinking about whether they made the right choice, others are concerned about what their post-divorce life will look like. More importantly, what they will leave the marriage with in regards to assets, property and liability.

Assets to address during the property division process

When couples in Florida decide to get married, they often believe they are both in it for the long haul. Unfortunately, roughly half of all marriages do not make it. Therefore, it is important to consider the possibility of divorce prior to and during the marriage. This could help divorcing couples understand in advance how the process could impact them and, particularly, how the property division portion of the divorce will play out.

Protecting you assets without a prenup

Getting married is a joyous eventful time. It is also a time where major decisions are made. Many of these decisions are exciting, such as buying a home, planning a wedding and planning for the future. But when it comes down to the details of the matter, couples can avoid thinking about their personal assets and how they could be impacted by marriage and divorce. While more and more couples use prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to protect assets in case their union ends in divorce, this is a very unromantic and overwhelming conversation to have.

Different ways to enter into a prenuptial agreement

Deciding to divorce is anything but pleasant. It is also a time where it can be difficult to navigate the complexities of a couple's life, making it challenging to come to an agreement on who gets what. Because it is well known that divorce can spark disputes and lengthy decision-makings, many couples decide to enter into a prenuptial agreement as a means to address these issues if they decide to divorce following their union.

Guiding you through the property division process

While some couples in Florida get married with the intention that it will be forever, the unfortunate reality is that our expectations do not always memorialize. Divorce is a real possibility, with nearly half of all married couples ending their union. Whether it is a mutual step or initiated by one spouse, once divorce has been filed for, both spouses need to take the time to sort though serious, challenging and sometimes complex issues.

Protecting your rights during the property division process

With the divorce rate remaining around 50 percent, this is a likely life event that couples in Florida and elsewhere will face at some point. While it is not an easy decision to make, filing for divorce can often be in the best interests of both spouses. Even though it is challenging to file the paperwork, that is only the beginning of the tough decisions and actions faced by spouses going through divorce.
