Division of Marital Property – Equitable Distribution
Lakeland Marital Property Attorney – Lawyer, providing professional Division of Marital Property and Family Law legal services in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Bartow, and Polk County Florida.
Contrary to popular belief, during a divorce in the State of Florida it does not always mean the property is divided in half. Division of marital property is actually the process of achieving equitable distribution of all property and assets accumulated during the course of your marriage. Property or assets brought into the marriage prior to your wedding may also be included if you shared the property and assets during the course of the marriage.
The equitable distribution of marital property and assets may include, but are not limited to:
- The family home, and other real estate or investment property;
- Automobiles, Motorcycles, Motor Homes, or other conventional modes of transportation;
- Recreational vehicles, such as boats, ATV’s,
- Checking and Savings Accounts;
- Pension Benefits, IRAs, 401(k)s, stocks, other investment interests; and
- other items of value and/or sentimental value.
