Equitable Distribution in Florida

Florida subscribes to the equitable distribution of marital property and debts in divorce. This does not mean a 50-50 split but a division that the court deems fair when reviewing the financial and marital evidence. Courts will look at many factors when making a determination.

The first step in deciding this issue is to distinguish marital property from separate property. Separate property is anything that was acquired prior to the marriage or that was inherited or received as a gift during the marriage.

Marital property is all the property acquired during the marriage, including:

  • Homes
  • Other real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Savings
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Businesses
  • Other investments
  • Debts

Marital property must be located and appraised or valued and a decision must be made about its liquidation or division.

Factors that can impact this issue include:

  • How long the couple has been married
  • Each party’s financial condition
  • Each spouse’s domestic and financial contributions to the marriage
  • Whether a spouse has contributed to the other’s spouse’s earning ability via education or training
  • Whether either spouse has squandered assets during the previous two years prior to the divorce action
  • Whether there is a prenuptial agreement
  • Whether a spouse is going to receive alimony
