Dividing assets in a divorce begins with discovery

Over the years, Florida residents can accumulate a wide variety of assets, including different kinds of real and personal property. When individuals go through the process of a divorce, it can be difficult to equitably divide this property between the spouses.

As discussed recently in this blog, the difficulties can begin well before the court makes its decision on the complex asset division. During the discovery process of litigation, the other party may attempt to hide assets or may not fully disclose all of the assets at stake.

This can come as a surprise, as individuals may be completely unaware that their former spouse owned other assets that were not apparent during the marriage. In other cases, the spouse might be aware of certain assets, but may have had no idea of the true value of the assets until the divorce.

Fortunately, there are rules in place to guide the divorce litigation. For instance, discovery rules may allow for sanctions to be imposed if a party fails to disclose information that is properly requested by the other party.

Our firm has significant experience in working through these difficult issues that arise in a divorce. By working closely with our clients and effectively utilizing the discovery process, we can determine all assets that may be at issue in the divorce. We can then put in place a successful strategy for asset valuation, which will ultimately lead to an equitable division of the assets during the divorce.
