Jacksonville Property Division Lawyer

Unlike other equitable distribution states, Florida requires family law judges to take an equal division of marital assets as the starting point for a fair division of property between divorcing spouses. It’s important to bear in mind that the statute allows the judge to move quite a distance from equal division based on a long list of factors that relate to the spouses’ incomes, separate property, lifestyle during the marriage, and financial behavior before and after the divorce case is filed. For sound advice and resourceful representation on property division issues in your divorce case, contact the Lasky Law Firm in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville property division lawyer Cindy Lasky can help you receive your fair share of the marital property, especially in complex marital estates involving family business assets, confusion as to the proper characterization of particular assets, or disputes as to the division of valuable retirement or pension benefits.

Most property division issues are settled through negotiation. Because most property settlements reflect the belief that the negotiated agreement gives the client a result at least as good as a judge would order through the application of our state’s equitable distribution factors, Cindy Lasky’s experience and attention to detail can give you a distinct advantage. Her ability to compare the terms of a proposed agreement to what you could expect from the judge can help protect your right to a fair share of the marital estate in such situations as the following:

  • Family business assets, interests in professional practices and partnerships, or other closely held corporate property
  • Division of pensions, retirement benefits, and executive compensation packages, including those involving stock options or deferred payments
  • Vacation real estate, investment properties, or interests in real estate investment trusts
  • Interests in property affected by the terms of prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements
  • Disputes as to the accurate valuation of real estate or other property
  • Appreciation during the marriage of property acquired by either spouse before marriage
  • Non-military spouse’s rights to veteran’s benefits, military pensions, or other assets and privileges under the Former Spouses’ Protection Act
  • Property division problems complicated by a spouse’s concealment or nondisclosure of assets, or by unusual financial behavior in the two years prior to divorce
