Division of Marital Property in Florida
Outside of child custody disputes, one of the areas where couples tend to argue the most is over the division of marital assets. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on your own, a family law court judge will have to render a decision. This will happen after you provide testimony and the judge reviews the facts in the case.
In most cases, the judge will order a fair split of the marital assets. There may be unequal distribution if it appears that one spouse tried to deplete assets or cause a potential interruption of the other spouse’s career or educational opportunities, or whether one spouse contributed to the other’s personal career or education, etc.
Child Custody and Support
Getting through the emotions and frustrations surrounding child custody and support can be difficult for some couples. This is one of the areas where we take the most time. We understand exactly what is at stake here and why it’s important to fight for your rights. If you can’t reach an agreement, the judge will decide on what is in the best interest of your child. This is not about what you and your spouse now want. It’s about what is the right decision for your kids.
There is no guarantee that the court will award you alimony. There are a number of factors the court uses to determine eligibility, including how long you were married, the financial resources of both parties, the earning capacity of each party, and more. You will also find that there are four types of alimony as well. These are permanent, durational, bridge-the-gap, and rehabilitative.

Even in an uncontested divorce, it’s important to have an attorney review the marital settlement agreement before you sign. Once the judge signs off, the order is final. Making changes would involve post-judgment modifications, which require something like a substantial change in circumstances to even qualify.
