Clearwater Property Division Attorney

Division of Marital Property in a Florida Divorce

After issues involving children, the asset division phase of a divorce is often the most important and contentious part of family law. It is essential that your lawyer understand the complex Florida law on property division so that you are treated fairly throughout the process.

At the Law Offices of Gale H. Moore, P.A., we represent clients in Largo, Clearwater and all the surrounding areas who are going through divorce. Our founding attorney, Gale Moore, is a Clearwater property division attorney with nearly 20 years of family law experience in Florida. Using her experience, we help clients protect their assets and deal with spouses who demand unreasonable amounts of marital property.

Equitable Distribution of Property in Florida

Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that assets and debts will be divided fairly between the parties. However, “equitable” does not mean “equal,” so a 50/50 split may not occur in your case. When dividing property, courts start from a basic idea: assets and debts acquired by either spouse during the marriage must be divided upon divorce. If, however, one spouse received an inheritance or gift, those items remain separate property and will not be divided.

Things become complicated very quickly. It is common for spouses to disagree about whether certain assets are marital property or not. Our Largo law firm understands the complexities involved in dividing:

  • Real estate
  • Pensions, 401(k) accounts and other retirement accounts
  • Stocks, bonds and other investments
  • Profit sharing and deferred compensation arrangements
  • Business property, including professional practices

If you and your spouse signed a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it is possible that many property division questions are already answered. We will analyze the agreement to determine whether there are weaknesses. Whether you are challenging the agreement or trying to uphold it, we can help.

Serving a Broad Range of Clients

The Law Offices of Gale H. Moore represents clients from all types of backgrounds. Whether you have modest assets or are a high net worth individual, you deserve an attorney who will be by your side throughout the divorce process. If your case requires, we will bring in divorce financial planners, accountants and business valuation experts to help gather and determine your assets and debts.

Our goal is to make sure you have the financial ability to move forward with the next phase of your life after your divorce is over.
