Florida Marital Property Attorney: Dividing Property in a Divorce

The economy has changed many things in Florida. Five years ago, divorcing couples fought hard to keep the house. Now they fight hard to get rid of it in a divorce.

At the Fort Lauderdale law offices of Andrew D. Washor, P.A., we tailor the approach we take to our clients' needs. Sometimes protecting assets in a divorce is worth a very hard fight. In those cases, we do everything possible to protect our clients' interests. Other times, the best solutions are created by spouses making decisions together, either through mediation or collaborative divorce. We often encourage spouses to negotiate their own divorce agreements while acting as strong advocates for their interests.

Our advice is based on in-depth knowledge and experience developed over three decades. Attorney Andrew D. Washor has helped numerous clients throughout southern Florida, helping them divide assets and debts in a broad range of situations, from simple divorces to complex and high-asset divorces.

In Florida, courts aim to divide marital property and debts equitably. To do this, they must first identify which property is considered "marital property." Marital property consists of items and real estate that were acquired during the marriage, with a few exceptions.

After marital property is identified, it must be divided fairly. At Andrew D. Washor, P.A., we try to help our clients understand that fighting over small things can be very expensive. We minimize costs by making smart decisions about asset division.
