Navigating Florida's property division laws in divorce

The decision to marry is often based on emotions. Unfortunately, when a marriage ends, the matter of determining which spouse gets which assets cannot be based on emotions as this would likely result in an unfair agreement. In order to protect each party, Florida has specific laws regarding property division during the settlement proceedings.

Property division in a gray divorce may be even more important

It is never an easy decision to end a marriage, especially after many years together. While the divorce process can be complicated at any age, proceedings that occur after many years of marriage may intensify during property division negotiations. Florida residents who are facing a so-called 'gray' divorce may have many concerns about how it will impact their finances.

Divorce can lead to financial and property division mistakes

The prospect of freedom from a bad marriage can lead the former spouses to make impulsive decisions that can result in long-lasting financial problems. Clear thinking during property division and afterward can avoid common mistakes.

Divorce and property division are best handled without emotions
