High-Asset Divorce In Florida
When it comes to the division of assets in divorce, no two cases are the same, and some asset division cases are much more difficult than others to resolve. When it comes to marriages where there are high-value assets to be divided, or one or both divorcing spouses own businesses or have complicated investments, untying the financial knots can often be more difficult than untying the marital knot.
In the State of Florida, division of property in a dissolution of marriage is required to be "equitable". The word "equitable" means 'fair', NOT 'equal'. Equitable division generally starts with the proposition of an equal division of marital property, but especially when high-value assets are involved, the operative word here is equitable. How the assets and liabilities are divided to arrive at an equitable result is up to the parties and/or the court, and there are unlimited ways to achieve equity in a given case.
