property Division/Equitable Distribution


Experienced Legal Support for Property Divison in Florida

What Is Marital Property?

Marital property is any asset acquired during your marriage from marital labor or marital income, usually up to the date of the filing of the divorce. This can include items like houses, land, retirement accounts, airplanes, investments, jewelry, and more. Particularly in instances of high-asset divorce, property division should be carefully negotiated, and our experienced attorneys at Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A. are here to help.

In a Florida divorce, “marital property” is equitably distributed between you and your spouse when the marriage is dissolved. While the court must begin with the premise that the distribution should be equal, there are instances where an unequal distribution favoring one party or the other may be more equitable. 


Our team will help you parse your marital and non-marital assets, and also walk you through the process of evaluating any liabilities and debt obtained during the marriage, as this is also considered during divorce proceedings. We work with a team of professionals and have excellent working relationships with experts such as appraisers and actuaries to create an accurate and fair assessment. 

Assets included in property division can include:

  • Real estate, including land and vacation properties
  • Retirement accounts and pensions
  • Stocks and stock options
  • Military benefits
  • Gifts
  • Collections 
  • Material goods such as cars, jewelry, airplanes, etc.
  • Businesses
  • Notes receivable
  • Assets held in trusts or partnerships
