Florida Uses Equitable Distribution

The widely held belief about asset division following a divorce is that it will be split up 50-50; if you get $25,000 worth of property, so will your ex-spouse. In Florida and many other states, divorce courts are bound to a system known as equitable distribution. During asset division proceedings, marital assets are distributed fairly, which does not mean evenly.

While there are no necessary grounds for divorce, you could gain more property during asset division if your spouse:

  • Did not maintain fidelity during your marriage.
  • Harmed you or your child through domestic violence.
  • Hid assets through dishonest disclosure methods.
  • Recklessly spent your shared finances despite your open concern.

You can also gain access to some of your spouse’s separate property – or something they owned by themselves before your marriage began – if you contributed greatly to its value during the marriage. For example, if you helped run their business as an assistant manager and profits soared during your time there, you could potentially have some claim over it when you divorce; at the very least, you may gain greater amounts of real property in exchange for not gaining any control of the company.
