Getting a divorce means that there will be property division. The assets and debts of the marriage will need to be split up. Sometimes, the two people involved will get together and make the split easy by deciding ahead of time what each one will get. This makes it easy for the judge.
Most of the time, this doesn't happen.
At the Thompson Family Law office, we are here to ensure that your rights are protected in this area. We listen carefully and then we can explain what your choices are under the law.
There are so many ways that this can go for you. We can meet with your soon-to-be ex-spouse's attorney and we can negotiate the property split this way.
You may have inherited property or assets during the marriage and these will remain yours alone, no matter what. If you made improvements to the family home with some of this inheritance, that will have to be split between the two of you.
Because Florida is a no-fault divorce state, the act of getting a divorce is made much easier. Neither party is to blame. That is, until the property division part begins. Then there could be some blame thrown back and forth.
Part of the act of getting a divorce can involve other things that Thompson Family Law can handle as well. Child custody and alimony are aspects of property division that can have several parts.
There are many other options when it comes to property division; too many to discuss here. Please take a look at our website to learn more about property division in divorce.
