Dividing Property in Port St. Lucie Divorce Cases
The state of Florida is a state that abides by equitable distribution laws when dealing with property settlements. This does not mean that both parties are able to split property 50/50 exactly, but rather, that the property will be split equitably between the two.
All marital property should be split equally; this would include:
· Any property, assets or liability that was acquired during the marriage
· Savings, homes, 401(k)s and even mortgages
· Real estate is typically not eligible for division and is either sold and divided by the proceeds or one spouse has to buy out the other spouse’s interest
In property settlement agreements in Florida, there are also issues that arise with non-marital property that was acquired outside of the marriage – this includes property that was acquired before the marriage, by inheritance or that was specifically outlined in premarital agreements. It also must have maintained its non-marital property status by not mingling with the marital property (such as stocks being put into a joint account) or having been placed under your spouses’ name.
