Excellence In Divorce And Tax-Related Matters

I Understand How Complex Property Distribution Works

Distribution of property is one of the most significant considerations in a divorce. Determining how to fairly distribute assets you acquired during your marriage can be complicated. While you are already ending your marriage and facing a new future, you don’t want to leave your property or business at stake.

If you and your spouse own assets and are concerned about the property division process, you need to work with an attorney who understands the process. I have been helping clients with property division issues in Vero Beach for over 30 years. I understand the unique challenges that can arise, and at my firm, George Lambeth Metcalfe, P.A., I can find a practical solution that meets your goals.

Helping Minimize Your Financial Losses After Your Divorce

Florida follows the equitable distribution model in dividing property after a divorce. This means that marital property and debts acquired during the marriage be divided properly. However, this does not mean that the couple splits property and debts in half in matters where unequal property and debt division is sought. Especially in complex property cases, the division may not be equal.

Complex property includes assets that are difficult to value, mixed with other premarital or nonmarital property, or not easily divided between the parties. Complex property may include real estate holdings, retirement plans, stock options or business interests. Dividing complex assets in divorce may require a professional appraisal to ensure an accurate assessment.
