Property Division in High-Asset Divorces

Aggressive Litigation in Divorce Court

The more property a couple has, the more complicated the divorce can be. Oftentimes, divorces involving large amounts of money or high-value assets are settled through litigation. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can assist with the process of arranging your property and distributing marital assets either in court or out of court. Some decisions are too complicated to make in collaboration with an ex-spouse, but she can determine whether your case can avoid the complexities of court.

Instead, the firm can represent you in court and be a tenacious advocate for your rights to particular properties in a divorce involving parties with high incomes or high net worth. You don't want the assets and income you worked so hard to accumulate to be divided unfairly when you separate from-your spouse. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can fight hard to protect your income in these circumstances.

Dispelling the Myth of Equitable Distribution

Many people are under the assumption that equitable distribution is an equal, 50-50 distribution of all marital assets. This is not true. In fact, the Florida courts will distribute assets and liabilities in a way that is most fair. While the court starts with the intention to divide assets as close to a 50-50 division as possible, various circumstances may alter the way that the case is resolved. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can argue on your behalf if you hope to receive more than 50% of your assets in a Florida property distribution case.

Assets Subject to Division

Some of the assets that may be considered marital property in your case include:

  • Bank accounts
  • Businesses
  • Annuities
  • Trusts
  • Notes
  • Bonds
  • Stocks
  • Collectibles and collections
  • Motor vehicles
  • Estates
  • Pensions
  • Benefits
  • Military retirement finds
  • Jewelry
  • Investment accounts
