Boynton Beach Divorce Attorneys Advise on Property Division

Lawyers pursue favorable results under Florida’s equitable distribution law

Even marriages that don’t last for decades can prompt heated disagreements about how assets and debts should be divided in a divorce. In many cases, unreasonable expectations and underlying resentment can cause couples to waste time and money with little to show for it. Gasparri Law Group in Boynton Beach advises clients on the applicable law and advocates for them during negotiations and litigation. As an equitable distribution state, Florida allocates assets and debts based on what a judge thinks is fair. While this can be a 50-50 split, it doesn’t have to be, so it’s crucial to have an experienced family lawyer by your side to assert your rights effectively and demonstrate what contributions you’ve made to your family and home during the marriage.

Proven family law firm works to secure fair allocation of assets and debts

Our firm works closely with clients to gain a detailed understanding of the assets and debts that must be divided. Starting with a free initial consultation, we’ll make sure you are aware of the relevant legal standards that affect your divorce, such as:

  • Separate vs. marital property — Only marital assets are subject to equitable distribution, and serious disputes can break out over whether a particular item should be considered separate property. Any asset acquired by either spouse during the course of the marriage is part of the marital estate, including interest and appreciation on retirement accounts and investments established before the marriage. Exceptions can arise for specific situations such as inheritances and business shares. We understand how to categorize all types of property for equitable distribution purposes.
  • Equitable distribution factors — When property division is placed in the hands of a judge for determination, any relevant factor can be considered. The pertinent Florida Statute lists several items for courts to consider, such as the duration of the marriage, the parties’ economic circumstances and contributions by one spouse to the other’s career.
  • Challenging a decision — Many people are less than satisfied with judges’ decisions on property division, but successfully appealing a decision requires a demonstration of fraud, mistake or legal error. If you believe that an existing determination is flawed, we’ll assess the likelihood of a reversal and advise you accordingly.

Whether your divorce is relatively friendly or fiercely contested, our firm will take the time to learn about what’s most important to you and seek to finalize a property division order that accomplishes your objectives.
