Managing The Division Of Your Assets

At the law firm of James R. Schaffer, P.A., we understand that you have worked hard toward building your success. The divorce process affects your finances and property. We have over 20 years of litigation experience and a reputation for being honest, aggressive advocates on behalf of our clients.

Dedicated To Protecting Your Financial Security

Whether your divorce is amicable or contested, money and property disputes can arise. There can be a lot at stake financially, and an experienced asset division attorney can help ensure that you receive a fair portion of the assets in your divorce.

Efficiently And Effectively Handling Your High Net Worth Divorce

Florida is an equitable distribution state. Contrary to popular belief, equitable distribution does not necessarily mean equal distribution. During the divorce process, your property and debts will be divided in a manner that the courts deem as fair.

Items that may be divided between parting spouses include the following and more:

  • Business interests
  • Debts
  • Retirement accounts and benefits
  • Real estate property
  • Real estate investments
  • Personal property
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Stock portfolios
  • Private equity funds
  • Stock and partnership holdings
  • Executive compensation plans

Conflicts can arise when the value of assets and property is disputed or one party suspects that the other has failed to fully disclose all assets. There may also be disagreement as to what items are considered marital property. When it comes to division of assets, an experienced lawyer can help fight for fair distribution.
