The decision to go through with a divorce is usually life-changing. The decision may be mutual, or it may be made by only one of the soon-to-be ex-spouses. Either way, the initial decision to go through with a divorce is only the starting point. Throughout a divorce case in Florida, there will be a number of other decisions for the divorcing couple to make – some with life-long implications.
Property division, for example, is one of the issues in divorce cases that can become complicated in a hurry. And, this issue is likely to impact both the short-term and long-term finances of each of the spouses. How this issue is addressed is, therefore, of crucial importance.
Property division in your case
Finding the right path forward on the issue of property division isn’t always easy. Throughout a marriage, it is likely that the divorcing spouses have – together – accumulated more assets and debts than they might realize. Those assets and debts need to be divided in a divorce case. If the divorce is somewhat amicable, it may be possible for the divorcing couple to reach their own out-of-court agreement on the issue of property and debt division. But, it is also important to protect your assets and, oftentimes, to fight for what you deserve. That may lead to courtroom litigation on this issue.
Ultimately, the right approach on this issue in any given divorce case will be unique to the facts of the case and the people involved.
