After more than 20 years of marriage, you and your husband have decided to divorce. The kids are over 18, so you don't have to worry about a custody battle. However, there are still aspects of the divorce that concern you.
When a Florida marriage ends, you would think that dividing up property and debt between the divorcing spouses would be a relatively easy task, but that is not necessarily the case. While state law calls for equitable division of marital property, what that actually means can be a complicated question, especially for a long-term or high-asset marriage during which the spouses may have accumulated a complex combination of property, money, investments, real estate and, on the other side of the coin, liabilities and debts.
