Sometimes divorces can be resolved quickly with little disagreement. Other times, aggressive representation is needed to protect your interests in court. When this is the case, turning to an experienced attorney is the best way to protect your interests.
For over 35 years, our Fort Lauderdale law firm — Andrew D. Washor, P.A. — has been building a reputation for experience, knowledge and skill in the practice of law. We have the resources to handle even the most complex issues, including division of family-owned businesses, as well as divorce disputes over pensions, investments and other complex property.
Florida law equitably divides marital assets and debts in a dissolution of marriage. However, determining which property is marital and which is non-marital can be a challenge, especially when complex assets are involved.
Determining the value of real estate, for example, may include determining its value before the marriage and determining how much it appreciated during the marriage. A spouse may be entitled to an equitable portion of the amount by which the property has appreciated.
To make these complex asset division calculations correctly, we work closely with you to determine the nature of personal and real property. We also consult with a network of highly-qualified experts. These include certified public accountants (CPAs), property appraisers, business evaluation experts and forensic accountants.
Hidden assets are often an issue in complex and high-asset divorces. Spouses may try to hide money in a closely-held company or use other tactics to keep money and property from their ex-spouses.
Finding hidden property can be difficult to prove. To do so, we involve accountants and conduct thorough investigations that protect our clients' interests. Spouses should know that they face harsh penalties for being caught hiding assets.
