Protecting Your Financial Interests In Divorce
One of the most contentious issues in a divorce case is often the division of property acquired during the marriage. Florida requires that all common property be distributed equitably. Often, however, disputes arise regarding what, exactly, is a fair and equitable division of assets.
Because of the disagreements that can arise surrounding the division of your property, it’s important to have a strong ally to advocate on your behalf during all aspects of your divorce proceeding. Pensacola divorce attorney James M. Burns has the knowledge and skill you need to ensure that your interests are protected during property division.
How Is Property Divided?
When you are going through a divorce in Florida, it’s important to understand that equitable distribution does not translate into equal division. That is to say, some individuals have the notion that their common property will simply be divided 50-50. However, that is not usually possible, and instead, the courts will seek to do what is fair and just for everyone involved. Some considerations include:
- The value of the property
- The income-producing abilities of each party
- The economic needs of each individual following the divorce
- Special needs or considerations
