Theodore Enfield Can Help Resolve the Division of Marital Property
Couples who divorce are sometimes faced with the challenge of dividing the assets and debts accumulated during the marriage. A prenuptial agreement outlines how property in divorce should be divided in the event of a divorce or legal separation; however, many couples forego a prenuptial agreement. When this happens, divorce lawyers are needed to ensure that the property, assets, and debts of the marriage are distributed equally.
What is Equitable Distribution?
Equitable distribution refers to the fair division of assets between spouses during and/or after a divorce. For the division of property, if there is no prenuptial agreement dictating how marital assets and liabilities should be separated, Florida courts will consider the contributions that each party made to the marriage. Those contributions include support of your spouse’s career or education, care for children, homemaking, and any interruption of career or educational opportunities.
The courts expect you to understand what can be considered a marital asset or debt and what should not be considered during this process. However, it can be overwhelming to try and collect this information alone. Miami’s divorce attorney Theodore H. Enfield has years of experience in the equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities. He can help you identify assets and debts through financial records, bank statements, investments, trusts, pension plans, retirement savings, credit card debt, mortgages and many other sources.
