The most heated divorce arguments after issues involving children can revolve around distributing the couple's marital assets and debts. It is often beneficial for spouses to work out a property settlement outside of court. If that is not possible, then property will be divided under Florida's "equitable distribution" statute. The word equitable does not necessarily mean an equal 50-50 split.Negotiating Marital Property Agreements in My Clients' Best Interests

When a couple gets divorced, all the assets and debts they accumulated during their marriage need to be divided equitably. The only items that are not subject to division are nonmarital assets, which include:
- Inheritances received by one spouse
- Gifts received by a spouse (but not gifts given from one spouse to the other)
- Property owned by a spouse before getting married

I often work with real estate appraisers, tax professionals, forensic accountants and other experts to locate and value property. With that information, I can help you find answers to important questions, such as:
- What will happen to my house?
- What happens to the money in our joint bank accounts?
- How will my retirement accounts be treated?
- What if we have a family-owned business? How is it going to be affected?
