How Is Marital Property Divided in Florida?
The state of Florida operates under the laws of equitable distribution. This refers to the way that spouses are to divide their property and debts in a divorce. In most cases, equitable means equal, but not in all cases. A judge may elect to grant an unequal division if it seems fair after considering all of the relevant circumstances.
The circumstances considered in the division of marital assets in Florida include:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s debts and liabilities
- Each spouse’s overall financial circumstances
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marriage
- Each spouse’s sacrifices for the marriage
- Whether either spouse wasted marital assets up to two years prior to filing the divorce petition
- The difficulty of dividing certain assets
