Naples Property Division Lawyer

Florida Division of Marital Property Lawyer

Florida is an equitable distribution state, which means that the court divides the marital property as equally and fairly as possible. It is not necessary that everything be sold and divided in half; you may wish to keep some property and give up other property.

I am Naples property division attorney Beverly L. Brennan of the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A. I have been helping families who are facing divorce move forward with their lives for over 20 years. This experience allows me to understand how to help you articulate and achieve your goals for the division of marital property.

What Is and Is Not Marital Property

That is the most important question when it comes to the division of the marital estate. Marital property is property acquired during the marriage; for example, a house purchased by a couple after they were married. Less obvious examples include the increase in value of property owned by one person prior to the marriage, or contributions to a pre-existing account such as a retirement plan.

As an experienced property division lawyer, I understand how to correctly determine which parts of the marital estate are marital property and which are not. If there is a dispute over the nature of a piece of property or asset, I can establish the facts which support a characterization of the status of the property in question. This includes property such as:

  • Homes
  • Retirement funds
  • 401(k)s
  • IRAs
  • Motor vehicles
