Dividing property during and after a divorce can be a very stressful, heated debate if the parties do not have a prenuptial agreement. Florida is an equitable distribution state, which presumes that the value of your marital assets and debt will be divided evenly.
The first step in crafting the property division is to determine what property, assets, debt and liabilities are considered marital or separate. Then, the value of these items must be determined and then divided. Depending on the length and complexity of your marriage, the gathering and analysis of financial information is crucial.
I am Coral Gables-based attorney David B. Mitchell, and I have more than 30 years of experience working with many individuals throughout South Florida as they value and divide their property. If you decide you would like to use collaborative family law or mediation to settle your property division, I am a collaborative lawyer and a certified family mediator.
I understand how important property can be to people. These are items for which you have worked hard, and you may have done so for the sake of your now-dissolving marriage. The emotions attached to property division vary. I am committed to giving you the practical, straightforward guidance you need in order to pursue a stable, sustainable future for you and your children.
