Equitable Distribution in Florida

Florida courts use the concept of "equitable distribution" when deciding how spouses will divide their assets in divorce. This means that spouses must divide their assets in a way that is "equitable" or fair, depending on numerous factors. While equal division is considered equitable in many divorces, there are others divorce cases in which it is fairer to distribute the assets unequally. According to Florida law, one of the factors that the state courts must consider is whether it is actually more desirable to prevent one spouse from laying claim to the business, corporation or professional practice of the other spouse.

There are many cases in which only one spouse truly deserves ownership of the business or a share in the business' profits. In other cases, dividing the business and its assets may actually be the fairest solution. Whether you are fighting for or against business division in a divorce, Attorney Real can provide you with the legal guidance you are looking for. Not only does she offer more than three decades of experience, but she has what it takes to resolve your case in the most effective and successful manner possible.
